Regardless of the choice, structuring and maintaining your small business as either an LLC or a corporation (C, PC, Sub-S, Nonprofit, etc.) can offer many advantages to small-business owners.
Most notably, when properly set up and documented, such entities protect an entrepreneur's personal assets, in case debts or legal judgments are claimed against the business. Other benefits include name protection and credibility, business continuity, flexibility, and varying tax advantages.
One size does not fit all.
Whether you own your business alone, have partners, or desire partners/investors, Wise & Associates can help you decide which of the various LLC/Corporate entities are right for your specific business endeavor, based upon many different business and personal factors. Our attorneys will guide you through the selection process, as well as assist you with the fairly minimal ongoing filing and respective requirements.
The practice handles all aspects of new business formation, including entity selection, state filing, organizational meetings, document preparation, and continuing transactional transactional support.
For example, we help businesses form a Limited Liability Company (LLC), Corporation (Sub S, C, or non-profit), General or Limited Partnership, Joint Venture, Sole Proprietorship, or other entity of choice, as appropriate.
We can handle all related ongoing business needs, including the drafting of LLC Operating Agreements, corporate Buy-Sell Agreements, Joint Venture Agreements, Lease Agreements, Purchase & Sale Agreements, Non-Compete Agreements, Confidentiality Agreements, or any other needed business documents.
