Choosing the Right Business Entity for Your Company
To run your new company most effectively and protect yourself from personal liability,
you need to choose the right business entity. We will help you determine whether
partnership, LLC or corporate formation is your best choice, depending on licensing,
your management style, the expected duration of the business, regulatory aspects,
and your tolerance for risk:
Limited liability companies (LLCs)
General or limited partnerships
If you have an established business, your current entity may not provide you with
the protection you need. Our attorneys can help you with reorganization and have
extensive experience helping clients purchase businesses and business assets.
