Providing A Strong Foundation And A Clear Path Forward

Starting a new business venture is filled with anticipation, but be wary of letting your excitement prevent you from building a secure foundation. If you are unsure what entity type would best suit your business, we can help you decide. Backed by decades of experience and proven advice, the lawyers at Stone, Leyton & Gershman can provide your business with a clear path forward.

A Stable Base For Continued Success

The type of business entity you select defines the basis from which your organization will operate for years to come. The choice you make is critical to ongoing organizational stability. An improper formation type can cause instability, leave the business open to liabilities and directly impact your personal finances.

When selecting a formation type, you must consider your long-term business goals, the jurisdiction, possible tax issues and multiple entity requirements. Potential entity options include:

  • Sole proprietorships
  • General partnerships
  • Limited liability partnerships
  • Limited liability corporations
  • S corporations
  • C corporations

Ongoing Support And Guidance

After the initial launch, a business can benefit from ongoing legal support as the demands of the business change. On a periodic basis, we help clients review organizational health and stability, insurance coverage needs, financial strategies and compliance issues. We also offer assistance with transactional work related to business contracts and other legal documents.
