Making Choices About Business Formation and Ownership
One of the first decisions to make when you are starting a business is which type of business entity to form. There are several types of business entity that have different advantages and disadvantages depending on your tax planning strategies, business ownership and control concerns, and other factors. Some of the most common business entities in Utah are:
- Subchapter S corporations
- Limited liability companies (LLCs)
- Family limited partnerships
Our attorneys can help you choose a form and complete all the required business formation filings and formalities. We can also help you draft and adopt agreements concerning the ownership and control of the business, such as partnership agreements and buy-sell agreements. We are highly knowledgeable about the estate and succession planning consequences of business arrangements.
Providing Ongoing Support to Your Business
Once you get your business up and running, it will likely be helpful to have an attorney you can consult on a regular basis, especially if you do not have the kind of budget that will support an in-house lawyer. We help our business clients with contracts, leases, financing agreements and other legal matters that come up in the course of business.
We also work with a network of knowledgeable professionals such as bookkeepers, accountants, financial experts and others who provide effective services to small and medium-sized businesses.
