LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANIES
Starting a new business can be overwhelming, and one of the first decisions will be how to organize your business. Corporations, partnerships and Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) are some of the more common forms, and there are several variations on each. Every business is unique, and we will work with you to retain control while protecting your assets. In particular, Series LLCs are a powerful tool to organize a business and protect its assets.
It’s not always enough merely to set your business up in a way that shields you from personal liability. Operational oversights can strip away organizational protections, a process known as piercing the corporate veil.
We will work with you to make sure that proper notice of annual and special meetings is given, and that the minutes are in order. This is especially important in situations where there is conflict, or when an owner is entering or departing the business.
Operating a business can be so all-consuming that it’s easy to overlook the logistical challenges that you may leave behind if you are no longer able to serve in your present role. A comprehensive business succession plan will provide you with a set of tools that will help ensure that your business is able to survive without you, preserving and maximizing the value of your legacy. Ideally, succession planning is something that begins with a business’s inception. It is never too late to start, though. Call to schedule an appointment to learn more about how we can help you preserve your legacy.
Businesses run into problems from time to time. These include collecting your accounts receivables, enforcing contracts, getting out of contracts, suing others and defending against lawsuits. If you choose, we can serve as your general counsel and be on call to deal with whatever issues arrive. Our phones are answered 24 hours a day, and for these clients we are available to guide you through whatever may come up, whenever it does.
Working with entrepreneurs is one of the most rewarding parts of our practice. We will help you start a new business, or transfer it to someone else when that time comes.
