Whether starting, buying or selling a business, the counsel of a trusted legal advisor is critical to its successful execution.
Websites and businesses have emerged promising do-it-yourself business creation. Few business creations, though, are that simple.
The establishment of a new business almost always requires the principal work with an attorney well-versed in corporate law, State law and taxation and Federal rules regarding the establishment of business entities.
Attorneys with Grand & Grand have worked with start-up businesses ranging from manufacturers, contractors, distributors, and restaurants to dry cleaners to professional practices and consulting firms. We will help you with the various legal rules that affect planning, negotiating, and document-drafting as it relates to the formation of your business.
It’s in your best interest to have an attorney who can help you spot irregularities, ambiguities, or weaknesses in business transactions and protect you from risk.
We advise and assist the principals in creating and forming the appropriate business entity (e.g., an S or C corporation for U.S. tax purposes, a Limited Liability Company, a Limited Partnership, etc.), drafting and filing Articles of Incorporation or Organization with the State, writing the Operating Agreement and/or Shareholders Agreement, drafting of Minutes, Bylaws and Stock issuances, among other required documentation.
Grand & Grand can work alone or in concert with accounting professionals to obtain the business Tax ID Number from the IRS and submit the appropriate filings with the Florida Department of State.
