Our lawyers design the most suitable form of business entity for the individual needs of our start-up clients. We consider and find answers to the following issues:
Whether the business entity would protect personal assets from business debts and liabilities
Whether the choice of business entity is sensible for tax purposes
Whether the business entity will be realistically manageable
Whether the business entity allows for future growth
In the State of California, a simple classification of for-profit business entities includes Sole Proprietorship, General or Limited Partnership, Limited Liability Company, Limited Liability Partnership and Corporation. In addition to for-profit business entities, we also assist clients with the establishment and operation of not-for-profit corporations, such as academic and religious associations and private foundations.
Our experienced business attorneys have extensive experience in all aspects of corporate transactions, including:
Asset and Stock Purchase Agreements
Contract Drafting and Review
Negotiating and Structuring Buy-Sell Agreements
Preparing Employment and Independent Contractor Agreements
Structuring and Forming Domestic and Foreign Corporations, Limited Liability Companies, Partnerships and Joint Ventures
Because the business world is dynamic, complex, and constantly changing, our lawyers take a big-picture approach, which greatly benefits our clients. We take a comprehensive view of each business entity and focus on issues that might otherwise elude the client, such as exit strategies and family business succession.
