Business Formation & Dissolution

Overview

Formation

Starting a business is an exciting time for our clients and there are many important decisions you will make at this stage that can help to ensure the success of your business for years to come.

One of the first decisions you will make is selecting the form your business will take.  There are various entity types that are available to you. Some of your options may include a corporation, limited liability company, or partnership. Each will carry different advantages and disadvantages in areas such as tax and personal liability. 

Our attorneys will work with you to develop a clear understanding of the scope of the services and/or goods your business will provide, as well as your goals.  Once we have an understanding, we will discuss with you  available options.  When you have made your selection, we start the process of establishing your business by drafting the appropriate agreements, complying with applicable licensing and filing requirements, and handling any other task you require at this stage such as dealing with employment contracts or real estate purchases.

We invite you to contact us today to get started.

Dissolution

Deciding to cease the operations of a business can be a difficult one, but the task of dissolving it can be even more complicated and have lasting consequences to the reputation and finances of its owners if not handled properly.

When a client makes the decision to dissolve their business, we are there to ensure that every aspect of winding up that business is completed.  Depending on the type of organization, our services will include: resolving claims of creditors, filing necessary dissolution documents with the state, arranging for the payment of taxes and the filing of tax returns, handling the dissolution of shareholder and partnership agreements, negotiating and resolving any shareholder and partner disputes, and much more.  Our attorneys will walk you through each stage with sensitivity and the singular goal of protecting your interests.

We invite you to contact us to discuss your plans and find out how we can assist you.
