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:

  • Corporations
  • Subchapter S corporations
  • Limited liability companies (LLCs)
  • Partnerships
  • 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.

To start building a relationship with a respected Utah business law firm that can provide you with ongoing legal support as you take on the important work of growing your business, contact us at Esplin | Weight today, 801-373-4912.

Prepared to Represent Your Interests in Any Context

Our experienced trial attorneys represent clients in a wide range of matters involving construction law. Our team includes experienced litigators who are prepared to aggressively pursue your interests in court, if necessary. Among the areas of construction law that we regularly handle are:

  • Mechanics’ and materialman’s liens: If you have not been paid for your contributions to a construction project, a mechanic’s lien or materialman’s lien may help you get the payment you deserve. Our attorneys assist contractors and suppliers with the filing and foreclosure of liens, and we also defend property owners against lien proceedings.
  • Construction defect disputes: We represent both property owners and contractors in disputes over alleged construction defects involving damage such as subsidence, water intrusion and more. We are fully prepared for litigation but will also pursue settlements where appropriate.
  • Construction contract disputes: If you are involved in a dispute over the performance or completion of a construction contract, you need an attorney who is experienced at analyzing complex contractual relationships.
  • Construction accidents: If you have been injured in a construction accident, you may have options for pursuing compensation outside the workers’ compensation system. Our lawyers can help you determine whether you have a potential personal injury case for construction accident injuries.
