Business Formation

Many of our relationships with our clients start at the inception of their business, with advice on selecting the proper form of entity for their business. We represent businesses in all phases of formation and organization. We provide legal advice in the formation of a variety of new commercial enterprises, including medical practice associations, construction contracting businesses, distribution businesses, telecommunications companies and computer technology companies.

Selection and Formation of the Proper Business Entity

We counsel clients starting a new business in selecting the type of business entity that will best serve the client's business objectives; be it a corporation, limited liability company, limited liability partnership or another type of business entity. After we guide our clients in the selection of the proper business entity, we provide counsel and advise on the steps involved in getting a business up and running, including:

  • Preparation of governance documents such as bylaws, operating agreement and partnership agreements
  • Preparation of shareholder agreements
  • Preparation of employment contracts and employee handbooks
  • Drafting original equipment manufacturing agreements
