Our business law team helps our clients manage every stage of the life of a business, from the organization to management to sale or dissolution.
There are four basic ways to organize a new business, and each type of organization differs in the way it is taxed and how it protects your personal assets from your business liabilities. We will educate you on the types of business organizations available to you, and help you decide which organizational structure works best for your situation and goals.
We will listen to your vision as to how you want to run your business, and help you draft documents that set parameters for how business decisions and ownership changes are made in accordance with that vision. By having these planning tools in place when you form your business, you will be prepared for events that are inevitable in the life of a business.
We can also help you when you are ready to sell or dissolve your business. Did you know that there is more than one way to structure the sale of your business? The structure you select will affect how you are taxed.
Whether you have sold your business, or are simply retiring and closing the doors, we can help you dissolve your business entity. We will educate you about what documents to file and what notices to give, to ensure the smoothest transition possible.

The Law Center is here to help our clients as they use their PPP loan proceeds and apply for forgiveness.
