Entrepreneur & Corporate
We help entrepreneurs build a strong foundation for meeting immediate and long-term objectives.
The choice of entity can have significant impact on tax, financial, and personal obligations. Most notably:
- Your protection against personal liability.
- Your ability to manage ownership interests.
- How your business will be taxed.
- Privacy protection for your business.
We take the time to understand your business and the objectives you seek to achieve. We then advise you on the type of entity most suitable for the development of the business. For example, if the business plans to issue options to its employees, forming a corporation will make that easier than an LLC.
In addition to selecting the type of entity, we also help you decide the best place for incorporation. This is an important consideration because certain states may be more favorable for meeting particular business objectives. For example, incorporation in Delaware can be beneficial for businesses that plan to go public in the future.
The ownership and management structure of a business can have substantial implications on its development. We can advise you on the allocation of ownership interests, distribution of profit and loss, rights of members, partners, and shareholders, responsibilities of the board members, and other key terms and structures specific for meeting your objectives. We can also prepare a wide range of corporate documents, including but not limited to:
- Partnership Agreements (General/Limited).
- Partnership Dissolution Agreements.
- Operating Agreements (LLC).
- Certificates of Incorporation.
- Corporate By-Laws.
- Shareholder Agreements.
- Subscription Agreements.
