Helping you build a solid foundation for your business
If you’re just starting your business and looking for help with formation, we are a valuable partner. Our lawyers can help you transition from simply having an idea to forming a business. Our business start up package provides all the legal services that most businesses need to get up and running.
- Limited Liability Companies
For single member limited liability companies (LLCs), we will help you properly form your company and provide you with a custom operating agreement that will outline your rights and obligations as well as those of any future members of your LLC for just $500.00 + the state’s registration fee. The fee to form your multiple member LLC is $750.00 + the state’s registration fee.
For corporations, we will help you properly incorporate your business, provide you with a custom set of organizational documents including articles of incorporation, bylaws, a shareholder agreement, the initial board resolution and a stock register for just $1,000 + the state’s registration fee.
- Limited Partnerships, Trusts, and Other Entities
If a LLC or Corporation does not fit with your goals, we can help you form other entities that better meet your needs. Contact us for our flat rates on all types of entities.
Our flat rate business formation packages include:
Advice on the type of entity to form
We’ll help you understand the important differences between the types of business entities, including the tax consequences, limitations on liability, and implications for subsequent financing and liquidity events. Once we’ve helped you identify the issues important to your business, we’ll help you decide which entity is best for your business.
We’ll file all the necessary paperwork with the state. We’ll secure an Employer Identification Number for your business so you can open up a bank account in your business’ name. We’ll also submit your application for a master business license with the state.
Custom-tailored governing documents
We’ll draft custom governing documents (e.g. articles of incorporation, bylaws, members agreements, etc.) for your business. The documents that govern the internal operation of your company are vital to your company’s success. These documents define the relationship between the founders and provide the ground rules for future decision-making. When properly drafted, governing documents can help founders avoid internal conflict so they can focus on results for their company.
Plan for Intellectual Property
We’ll help you identify intellectual property issues for your company, and help you create a plan to protect your intellectual property. Application for patent, copyright, or trademark registration is unique to each client and therefore we cannot fairly include these services in our base rate. If you are interested in pursuing these protections, please contact our attorneys to discuss how we can help.
