Business Law and Types of Business Formations

Choosing an entity is vital to business or corporation formation. The choice of entity can impact the amount of taxes levied, how dividends are to be paid to shareholders, and how liability is assessed. Our attorneys work closely with clients, evaluating business goals, tax implications and levels of liability in regard to each of the following business formations:

  • S-corporations
  • C-corporations
  • Limited Liability Corporations (LLC)
  • Partnerships
  • Sole proprietorships

Business Planning and Real Estate Law

Our commercial real estate practice includes helping business owners acquire property. We also help businesses lease commercial space. In each instance, we review the proposed contractual terms to ensure that you aren’t burdened with financial or legal liability in the event of default on the part of the commercial real estate owner.

Business Planning and Tax Planning

The entity under which your business operates will have tax implications. We work with you to form a business entity that can protect your assets from taxes in compliance with federal and state regulations. In addition, we can review your estate plan to ensure that it complies with your bylaws and contains an adequate business continuity plan. Attorneys Herbert Phillips and Michael Gerstein each hold an L.L.M. in Taxation, instilling confidence in business clients that the tax implications will be fully considered.
