Including, but not limited to formation of corporations and limited liability companies.
I explain to my clients the ways in which choosing a Corporation or Limited Liability Company as a business entity can provide protection of their personal assets.
After the formation of a Corporation or LLC, I meet with my clients and conduct the first business meeting in my office. At this meeting, the formalities of corporate structure and operation are explained, including:
- Issuance of certificates for stocks or units of ownership.
- Designation of the board of directors and officers or managing members.
- Legal requirements for annual meetings and service of legal process with the secretary of state.
In addition, I also assist clients who are purchasing and selling existing businesses and negotiate terms of commercial leases.
