How To Choose The Right Legal Entity For Your Business
The first issue many business owners face when they start their business is which entity to select for their business. Business owners must decide whether their business is a:
- Sole proprietorship
- General partnership
- Limited Liability Company
- or some other entity.
The entity decision might not be an easy one. The entity you choose may affect your taxes and overall business structure. Because selecting the proper entity can be confusing and have serious implications, it can be a daunting task. At Katz, Pryor, & DiCuccio, LLP, we advise our clients on which entity is best for them based on their individual business needs. Once this decision has been made, our attorneys can file the necessary documents with the Ohio Secretary of State or any other appropriate entity.
Staying Legally Compliant After Forming a Business
Once your business is formed, we are also able to assist with any necessary documents that must be drafted. We can help with front-end work such as contract-drafting, or represent your business in litigation, should the need arise. Our work includes, but is not limited to, drafting and negotiating leases, services and sales contracts, employment contracts, and non-compete covenants. The proper contractual language is important to ensure that your business starts out on the right foot.
