Entity Choice Considerations
We begin business formation discussions by asking clients about their immediate and future objectives for the business. With this in mind, we can determine what entity structure will help you achieve these goals. Our attorneys take a long-term approach to business formation, thinking ahead to what may help your business grow in the future.
When we understand your business objectives, we will consider the risks, benefits and tax liabilities of different business entities, including:
- Sole proprietorships
- General partnerships
- Limited liability partnerships (LLP)
- Limited liability corporations (LLC)
- Subchapter S corporations
- Closely held companies
Privately or closely held companies must set up ownership in a manner that provides for an orderly transition of business, including terms for the eventual sale of stock, voting trust provisions, and valuation provisions for death, disability and retirement of a principal. We can draft buy-sell agreements and other contracts that will accomplish this for your company without interrupting business operations.
