Business Formations

When starting a new business or merging two existing entities, the law firm of Brewer, Pritchard & Buckley, P.C., is a cost- and time-saving resource. The firm's attorneys advise clients in all aspects of corporate governance, formation and restructuring.

Owners starting a new business have several options. The structure affects their personal liability, taxes and other important factors. Initial formation documents set forth the corporate governance — it is important to include the current provisions in order to avoid future problems. The lawyers at Brewer, Pritchard & Buckley, P.C., will discuss viable business organization options, including:

  • Sole proprietorships
  • Partnerships (financial and general)
  • Limited liability companies (LLCs)
  • S corporations
  • C corporations

Successfully filing a new business with the secretary of state's office establishes the company's name, address and goals. Attempting to form without a lawyer's help can cause delays, resulting in future negative consequences, and extra expense.
