Experienced Business Formation And Startup Counsel

Launching a new business is exciting, but plowing through the necessary paperwork can be tedious. How you form your company can impact taxes, legal liability and other issues for years to come. Do not let the complexities of business formation diminish your dreams.

At Lanard and Associates, we work closely with business owners, investors and entrepreneurs in evaluating the options available when building and managing a business. We will simplify your questions and help ease your worries.

Selecting The Right Business Entity And Properly Establishing Your Business

Choosing the most advantageous entity can be complicated. You have several options, such as a sole proprietorship, a limited liability company, a limited partnership, a corporation and more. We answer all your questions in plain English, not legalese. We work with you, your accountant, and your business partner(s), if any, to determine the most advantageous business entity for your specific situation.

Next, we form the entity and prepare all the accompanying paperwork, and provide a Minute Book (binder) to hold the documents, company seal, customized member or stock certificates, initial minutes and By-laws for a corporation, an Operating Agreement for a limited liability company, and obtain the federal Employer ID Number (EIN). All of this for a flat fee that includes the state filing fee.

If you have partners, for an additional fee, we will prepare the document defining the relationship between the partners and how the business should be run. If your relationship breaks down in the future, it is this document that will govern the rights of the owners and the outcome of your business. This document is crucial to clarifying what happens in various contingencies; for example, if one of the partners dies, becomes disabled, retires, or leaves the business or if you wish to acquire a new partner. Let the knowledgeable and experienced attorneys at Lanard and Associates guide you through this process.
