The key to any successful business start-up is a well-thought out business plan. The corporate attorneys at Bergen & Parkinson, LLC are well versed in business law and the complex tax nuances that result when forming a business. We routinely assist clients with all facets of their business formation including:

  • Formation of the business entity including corporations, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships, limited liability companies, and individual self-employed companies.
  • Acquiring state identification numbers
  • Partner/member/shareholder agreements including buy-out planning
  • Joint venture agreements
  • Purchase and sale of a business
  • Succession planning
  • Dissolutions

Deciding upon an entity type is one of the first major decisions made when forming a business.  “Keep it simple and get it right the first time” is one of our mottos. The way in which any business is formed will determine the personal liability of the owners, how taxes are paid, and many other factors such as securing future financing. The attorneys at Bergen & Parkinson, LLC can guide you through the different entity types to make the selection that fits your needs best. Whether a D/B/A, LLC, or corporation, entity types all have pros and cons that a new business owner needs to be aware of so that the best choice is made for them as individuals and for their new venture.
