Corporate Practice - Business Formations

Our Corporate Practice Group regularly assists clients in the formation and structuring of new business enterprises. There is a wide variety of forms of business enterprises, each with its own relative advantages and disadvantages. These forms range from a sole proprietorship to a joint venture, general partnership, limited partnership, corporation, "S" corporation or limited liability company, to a limited liability partnership or limited liability limited partnership, to more specialized and exotic forms of business enterprises. The organizers or founders of a new business enterprise must decide upon the most appropriate form of entity and structure for their venture, often by considering multiple objectives.

We counsel clients on choosing the most appropriate entity and structure for their new business enterprise taking into account our clients' business objectives, including liability protection, desired capital and management structures, tax treatment, regulatory concerns and other considerations.
