Business Formation

When starting a new business, an entrepreneur should carefully select a business form.  There are many options to choose from, including sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), corporations, and more.  Each form has its particular advantages and disadvantages depending on the type, size, and goals of the business.

In conjunction with selecting a business form, an entrepreneur must choose where to form the business.  Sometimes it can be advantageous for a new business to be formed in a state other than California because of favorable laws regarding taxes, corporate governance, and legal liability – even if the business will only operate in California.  The question of “where” adds another layer of complexity to the business formation process that requires the help of an expert attorney that can ensure formation is done properly.

At The Burton Law Firm, we are equipped to handle any type of business formation in any state, California or otherwise.  Our expertise can help guide an entrepreneur through the selection process, answering any questions that arise, and helping to get the business off to a proper start.

Once a business form has been selected, our Firm will draft all of the business documents and file all of the necessary paperwork to make the business official and operational.  This can include the creation of bylaws, operating agreements, partnership agreements, articles of incorporation, articles of organization, and the like.  We pride ourselves on tailoring these documents to your specific needs, rather than providing cookie cutter solutions that may or may not provide the legal compliance or liability protection that you need.
