Southern California Business Organization Attorneys
Long-term business relationships can help a company start strong and stay competitive. At Hymes, Schreiber & Knox, LLP we focus on building lasting relationships with our business clients. This relationship begins with business formation/entity selection and continues to evolve throughout the lifetime of the business, as we routinely advise corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs) and partnerships regarding ongoing legal matters.
Would you like to speak with a lawyer regarding the formation of your business organization? Contact Hymes, Schreiber & Knox, LLP to schedule your consultation. We are accessible to our clients and approach their business startup concerns with both creativity and care.
Business Organization Formation
As part of our corporate law practice, we advise clients during the crucial phase of business formation and discuss the issues that will play a role in entity selection. Typical questions we will examine include:
- What type of business is it?
- What liabilities are involved?
- Are you planning on having a tax advisor or accountant?
- Do you have a location, or will you need to acquire property?
- Have you investigated leasing options?
- How many owners or managers will be in the company?
As we discuss these issues with you, we can determine the best type of legal entity for your business to form and operate under, whether this proves to be a limited liability corporation (LLC), a "C" or "S" corporation, a limited liability partnership (LLP), a non-profit organization, or another type of business venture. Our firm can also advise you on the tax planning strategies that will best complement your choice of business entity.
As Your Business Grows
As our client's businesses prosper and grow, it is inevitable that certain concerns or legal issues will develop periodically. However, because we have represented so many of our clients from the inception of their business onward, we thoroughly understand their business needs and can provide carefully tailored and effective legal advice. We regularly advise businesses on the following issues:
- Shareholder agreements
