Selecting the proper organizational form for a new business starts with the goals and objectives of the prospective owners. Our Los Angeles Business Attorneys assess the immediate needs as well as long term goals as the business grows and matures. Our process begins with interviewing the owner to determine the scope and nature of the business activity (manufacturing, research and development, professional services, etc...) Other necessary considerations include, but are not limited to, the number of participants in the business, their ROI or compensation; available capital or credit; financial and operational risks; record keeping; anticipated term of the business venture, whether a single transaction or venture or a going concern; and any legal requirements.
There are several types of business entities, each with its own advantages or disadvantages. We consult in the formation of corporations, S corps, personal service corporations, professional corporations, general partnerships, limited partnerships, LLCs, LLPs, joint ventures, business trusts, not-for-profits and sole proprietorships.
