Closely Held Business Entities
Clients starting new businesses need special attention and our Firm offers a full range of services from inception to retirement to insure those needs are met.
In conjunction with financial advisors we assist clients in selecting the entity best suited to their purpose. These include:
- “C” Corporations
- Sub-Chapter S Corporations
- Limited Liability Companies
We advise clients about and, when appropriate, prepare:
- articles of incorporation
- by-laws and resolutions
- operating agreements
- voting trusts
- shareholder buy-sell agreements
and other documents designed to aid and ensure proper governance of the entity and to provide for a smooth transition in the event of a change of ownership.
Conversely, if a business is no longer viable or a change of ownership is advantageous, we also assist our clients with liquidation and dissolution of business entities, and regularly handle stock purchases, mergers, asset acquisitions and sales.
On a continuing basis, we perform annual reviews of business activities, and act as keeper of the corporate records and general counsel to the business and its owners.
