Corporate Formation & Planning
The type of corporate structure chosen as a foundation for your business (corporation, partnership, limited liability company, etc.) has lasting implications for personal liability, regulation, corporate governance, tax deferral or control, succession or transfer issues, as well as general asset protection. As attorneys who have spent their careers advising healthy companies as well as assisting those in trouble or financial distress, we have a thorough understanding of the intricacies and benefits of proper entity formation. We incorporate operating agreements, shareholder agreements and bylaws and other steps to assure proper observance of corporate formalities. In all but the most technical circumstances, we believe the key legal framework of a business should be lean, sensible and carefully crafted. Our unique perspective allows us to provide the advice and assistance you need to get your business set up right from the start.
For example, unlike partnerships, the formation of a corporation means that the business has distinct and separate assets from the corporation’s owner(s), and that the corporation itself owns its assets, is responsible for its debts, and can be held liable in civil actions independently from owner(s). Limited liability of a corporation is one of the most attractive features of this business structure type. It is ideal to construct your business interests and structures with retirement in mind, consistent with sound asset and wealth preservation planning. While a corporation may be an ideal business type for many, a commitment to detailed compliance is required. We incorporate efficiently crafted operating agreements, shareholder agreements and by laws and other steps to assure proper observance of corporate formalities, and provide guidance to assure the protections that corporate formation affords. In all but the most technical circumstances, we believe the key legal framework of a business should be lean, sensible and carefully crafted.
