Business Organization and Planning

Business law, also known as commercial law, is wide-ranging and involves many legal areas such as choice-of-entity, business organization, and taxation.

State and federal laws will impact individuals seeking to form a business structure for a new or existing company.  A business owner must decide whether a corporate structure, limited liability company, partnership, or other vehicle works best for the business, as well as which state’s law best serves the needs of the business.  It is also important to consider the local, state, and federal tax consequences that would be expected to flow from each type of entity.

Many aspects of commercial law are complex, and a business owner may need guidance from legal counsel in a variety of areas when planning for a new business or forming a new entity for a current business.  Capshaw Green can assist with the initial stages of planning, with entity formation, and with legal issues that may arise in the course of operating a business.
