The firm can counsel you on choice of business entity and then incorporate and organize the entity, including corporations and limited liability companies ("LLC's"). Since the choice of entity is dependent upon several factors, we work closely with clients and other professionals to ensure that the type of entity is the most appropriate for you. If there is more than one owner, we can prepare an agreement among the owners (such as a shareholders agreement or an operating agreement). These agreements can address division of duties, manner of voting, admission and removal of owners, sharing of profits and losses, restrictive covenants, and more.
We have extensive experience in drafting contracts. Each agreement is "tailor-made" to the specific individual situation. With many years in drafting various types of agreements across multiple industries, you can feel confident that we can assist you.
