Even a relatively simple contract can present complicated problems if not drafted with strategy and care. We pride ourselves on ensuring that your goals are at the forefront while your interests are being protected.Business Formation
There are advantages and disadvantages to each type of business structure. The structure you choose will have important implications for how you do business, your risks in doing business and the extent of your liability. It is important to work with an experienced business lawyer to review the specific needs of your business and understand the benefits, tax structures and formalities related to each type of business structure.
Business structures include: sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability partnerships, corporations (either Sub Chapter S or C corporations), and limited liability companies. Our Phoenix business law attorneys will help you understand all the consequences of your business formation choice. For example, some structures allow for a more casual approach with less guidelines and formalities to tend to, while others require a more formal approach. Additionally, some business structures are created for a specific purpose and terminate upon the conclusion of that purpose, while others continue indefinitely until a formal dissolution takes place.
Once you have chosen your business structure, or rather once your business structure has chosen you depending on your goals and needs, our business lawyers at Platt & Westby, P.C., can ensure its proper formation. We draft business formation documents, bylaws, partnership agreements, conduct trade name searches, and prepare other standard business formation documents.
