Position Your Business for Long Term Success

Business owners need to address multiple concerns to ensure that their company is operating legally and correctly.

There are many different aspects to business formation, from entity selection to drafting contracts and agreements. A business law attorney can help with all of the facets of business formation, ensuring that all legal requirements have been met and that a business is positioned for ongoing success. Getting the right advice is often more important than the form of the documents.

Selecting the Right Business Entity

Business formation is the process of creating a legal business entity. This typically involves selecting a business structure, filing the necessary paperwork with the state, and obtaining any required licenses. There are multiple options available when choosing a business entity, and they each have different advantages and disadvantages. Commonly-used business entities include:

  • Sole proprietorship - A business that is owned and operated by a single individual may be treated as an asset of the owner rather than a separate entity. This is the simplest type of business structure, and it can provide an owner with flexibility and complete control over business decisions. However, the owner will be personally liable for business debts and obligations, and they may encounter difficulty in raising capital from outside investors.
  • General partnership - A partnership is a business entity created by two or more individuals who are looking to operate a company together. Partnerships can be formed with relative ease, and they offer tax benefits, but there are also potential drawbacks. For example, each partner will be personally liable for the debts of the business, and disagreements between partners can lead to business dysfunction.
  • Limited partnership - A limited partnership is a business entity that has both general and limited partners. General partners typically manage the day-to-day operations of the business and have unlimited liability, while limited partners usually only provide capital and have limited liability. This type of business structure can offer some protection for limited partners, but it can also be complex to establish and maintain.
  • Limited liability partnership (LLP) - An LLP is a business entity that offers liability protection for all partners. This type of structure can be advantageous for businesses in certain industries, such as accounting or law, where personal liability could be a concern. However, LLPs typically require more formalities and paperwork than other business entities.
  • Limited liability company (LLC) - An LLC provides its owners with protection against liability. LLCs can be advantageous for businesses of all sizes, as they offer a great deal of flexibility in terms of management and ownership structures. Additionally, LLCs are not subject to the same level of regulation as other business entities, such as corporations.
  • Corporation - A corporation is a business entity that is owned by shareholders and operated by a board of directors. Corporations may have certain tax advantages, and they can often raise capital more easily than other business entities. However, corporations are subject to more regulations than LLCs, and they can be more complex to establish and maintain.
