Business Entity Formation

Many factors come into play when deciding what type of entity is right for your business: the extent of protection from personal liability that you are seeking, the desired tax treatment of your business profits and take-home income, management structure, whether you anticipate adding future equity partners, capitalization, and more. We can help you explore each area and establish your business that works for you.

Types of Business Structures We’ll Help You Consider:

  • General Partnership
  • Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)
  • Limited Partnership
  • Limited Liability Limited Partnership (LLLP)
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC)
  • Corporation
  • S-Corporation

Nonprofit Corporations

Nonprofit corporations are corporations that are formed with the intent to carry out a purpose that is charitable, educational, literary, religious, or scientific. One of the largest benefits to a nonprofit corporation is that the money that is taken in for the charitable purpose is normally tax-free.

Small Business General Counsel Services

We help you design, implement, and maintain effective plans to help you reduce your personal liability, preserve all viable income tax deductions, facilitate your retirement, maintain family harmony, retain key employees and minimize taxes.

And, most importantly … we ensure that your business has the proper foundation to allow for maximum growth with minimal risk to you and your loved ones.

Business Succession Services

Once your business entity is incorporated and online with agreements, insurance, intellectual property planned for and protected, and financial systems filling the coffers, we shift the conversation away from set up to the all-important exit.

It’s not the first time we will have discussed it as all of our business set ups are planned for based on your eventual exit plan, whether that is selling the business at a certain point, operating it for income as long as desired, or passing your business on upon your death.

Services include:

  • Ongoing relationship throughout your life and life of your business
  • Capturing your legacy
  • Leaving more behind than just money
