Our lawyers have vast experience representing entrepreneurs and owners of active and passive businesses. We counsel our clients on the attributes of business entities such as S-corporations, C-corporations, general partnerships, limited partnerships and limited liability companies and help them select the best suited one. In selecting the appropriate business entity, consideration is given to federal and state taxation, ease of creation, costs of incorporation, operation, business succession, whether owners will be limited to family members or include unrelated persons, control requirements, liability issues and integration into the client’s overall plan. Business entities can be created in a multitude of jurisdictions and we assist our clients in determining what jurisdiction will provide the optimal entity benefits for the intended business purpose.
