Bergen County Small Business Lawyers

New Jersey Business Formation Lawyers

Owning and successfully growing a business is a dream that is held by many Americans. You may know your business inside and out, but most business people do not have the time to focus on the legal issues necessary to protect their business and their family from creditors, tax problems and disputes between partners and shareholders.

What Sort of Business Entity Should I Choose?

Your choice of business entity can have a dramatic impact on the future of your business. Your choice of business entity will impact tax liabilities and your actual ownership of the business. When beginning a business, it is important to insure against the failure of your business. A properly structured corporation can protect your personal assets from liability for debts incurred by the business.

We can advise you on what entity type will best suit your business goals and complete the formation for you:

  • Sole proprietorship
  • Partnership
  • Limited liability partnership (LLP)
  • Limited liability corporation (LLC)
  • S corporations
