Small Business Formation

When you start a new business endeavor, it is important to know the appropriate vehicle to use to protect your personal assets. Our attorneys will work with you and your accountant to select the best business form. Whether you decide to form a partnership, corporation or limited liability company, the law requires that you follow particular steps in order to properly form the business entity. You will need to decide how the business decisions are made, how profits and losses are shared, how the business is transferred, etc. A good business will have detailed agreements or by-laws which control their operation.

Our attorneys have been assisting small businesses for many years. Not only can we assist you with forming the business entity you choose, but we can aid with maintaining your business records as required by New York State law.
