Fairfield County Business Formation Lawyers
We Provide Skilled Assistance and Invaluable Counsel to Entrepreneurs in Danbury, Southbury, and Westport
Everyone knows the time-honored advantage of “starting off on the right foot.” Devising a winning business model is a challenging first step for most entrepreneurs. Also of key importance is finding the optimal business entity and structure.
Choosing The Right Business Structure
You have many options, each with its own peculiarities:
- Limited liability companies
- General partnerships
- Limited liability partnerships
- Limited partnerships
- Sole proprietorships
In conjunction with your accountant, we can recommend the optimal entity for your purposes. Income tax and liability issues are major considerations, of course, but flexibility, ease of raising capital, and familiarity to creditors and customers are also relevant factors.
Intricacies of Business Formation
The law of the state in which an entity is formed, as opposed to where it is located, typically controls its internal governance. We can help you form your business in a state with laws most conducive to your objectives.
Our lawyers can also help with agreements that address management and financial issues that are not addressed by state law. When a company has multiple owners, it becomes critically important to solidify arrangements among them. The ramifications of death, disability and retirement should be considered in this early phase.
