Come see the difference.

When it’s time to start your next business venture, selecting experienced counsel to advise you on proper entity formation and maintenance is one of the most important decisions you can make. Our firm has extensive experience in the planning, formation, maintenance, and dissolution of various types of legal entities. We have represented hedge funds, Fortune 500 Companies, private ventures, and entrepreneurs in the formation of a wide range of entities ranging from Limited Liability Companies, Professional Corporations, B Corps, C-Corps, S Corps, and a host of different partnership structures. In addition, our experienced tax attorneys can provide you the critical guidance on the tax implications of each of these different structures.

Experience and Judgement Are Key

Deciding on the proper business structure involves balancing the benefits, limitations, and risks of different structures and determining the structure that best fits the client’s goal and objectives. Some of the factors that must be addressed include tax considerations, entity liability, and personal liability. Our seasoned attorneys will guide you on what structure will most appropriately meet your business’s needs and will execute the formation of your new entity flawlessly. Once your new business entity is formed, our attorneys will ensure that the entity is managed and maintained in the best and most efficient manner under the applicable state law.

Furthermore, our seasoned paralegals work regularly with a number of states and are familiar with filing and registration requirements as well as ongoing reporting requirements.

Likewise, our team has extensive experience in winding up businesses for our clients. If you are closing your business, it is important to shield yourself from any future liability. Although forming an entity may seem like a simple process, if you want it done properly you must rely on an experienced law firm like Antonoplos & Associates.
