Starting A New Business

New businesses are a key component to our local economy and they require special attention and care, especially from a legal and tax perspective. Whether you’re a first-time business owner or an experienced entrepreneur, we’ll be happy to walk you through every step of the business start-up process.

There are two important steps to legally forming your business. The first is selecting the right business entity, such as a corporation, limited liability company (LLC), partnership, or S-corp. The best entity for your business will be determined by several factors, including the type of business you are operating, the investment and ownership structure, how you and the other owners will be compensated, and what will give the best tax advantage. There’s no one-size-fits all, and it’s important that you select the right entity for your business. Unwinding a poor choice can be complicated and expensive.

The second important step to legally setting up your business is making sure that your entity is properly formed. An entity that wasn’t done right can cause big problems down the road. As lawyers with extensive experience in both business and tax, we'll make sure you’ve got the right entity with the best tax advantage, and that all of your documents are properly drafted.

Once you’re up and running, we can assist you in obtaining your employer identification number (EIN), finding the right fit for your banking and payroll, and getting set up with a bookkeeper. You’ll be able to start working in your business instead of worrying about the legal stuff. ASAP.
