Business Formation & Structure

Your Business Needs a Strong Foundation.

So, where should you start? Choosing the right form of business entity is critical and we can help you find the perfect fit. We explain the pros and cons of corporations, LLC’s, limited partnerships, joint ventures, and professional associations and help you decide what’s best for you. We work with you to craft Governing Documents, Buy Sell Agreements, and Operating Agreements to make sure your bases are covered. We assist with required government reporting requirements to help you minimize potential risk, including ensuring compliance with the Corporate Transparency Act. We help you with ownership structure, control, restrictions on ownership transfer, and buyout strategies upon death, retirement, and other important milestones.

Your Goals Are Our Goals.

We look at things from your perspective. We carefully address your specific needs and objectives, considering each owners unique role.  We have experience designing and implementing equity ownership strategies through Stock Bonus Plans, Restricted Stock Plans, and Incentive Stock Option Plans (ISO’s) for years. We help you weigh the pros and cons of issuing equity, such as Phantom Stock and Stock Appreciation Rights Plans (SAR’s). We can even help you put in place employment agreements with key employees to make sure that everyone is clear on their roles and responsibilities.

We can help you build a solid foundation by considering:

  • Buy Sell Agreements
  • Operating Agreements
  • Restricted Stock Plans
  • Incentive Stock Option Plans (ISO’s)
  • Stock Bonus Plans
  • Stock Appreciation Rights Plans
  • Phantom Stock Plans
