Corporations & LLCs

Choosing the Entity Structure for your Operating Company and Intellectual Property Holding Company (if you need one)

Choosing the right type of business organization during the formation process is often the first step to building a successful enterprise. We help to structure new businesses, including corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs), ensuring that the organizational scheme best suits your business needs and protects you from both legal and financial liabilities. Also, we assist businesses in the preparation and implementation of articles, bylaws, and operating agreements. Connie aims to fully account for the size, mission, and ultimate goals of your business, and to provide practical advice and legal counsel with an eye to your bottom line.

When we assist clients with their initial planning and formation, we do so with an eye toward the future. Accordingly, our firm also offers continuing services, helping clients to comply with corporate formalities, maintain accurate records, produce annual reports, manage assets, and ultimately, develop and grow.
