Business Formation, Document Drafting, Document Review

Clients often rely on the experience of our business and commercial law attorney to help start a business. We advise clients on how to select the appropriate business entity to meet their needs and goals. We do much more than just draft the articles required to form a corporation, LLC (limited liability company), partnership, or other business entity. We also take into consideration the long term goals of your business and prepare any necessary operating agreements, shareholder agreements, employment contracts, non-disclosure agreements, non-compete agreements, and other necessary business and commercial documents. We can also assist you with establishing bank accounts, ordering stock or membership certificates and a company seal. We can also establish a tax identification number for you with the IRS.

While some business entities require many well-drafted documents to protect business owners or investors, others are able to take a more affordable route. We will provide you with answers to your questions that help you determine which course and entity selection best represents your needs. We will then get your business entitly filed with the appropriate agency, and advise you on how to properly set up bank accounts and begin running your business entity successfully.
