Business Formation & Incorporation
How your business is structured is important because it will have a significant impact on the business’ tax liability, its ability to attract investors and the personal liability of the owners should the business ever be sued. At Lambert Shortell & Connaughton, our lawyers work closely with owners and entrepreneurs and assist them with selecting the proper legal structure that will meet their immediate and future business needs. Moreover, rather than using some standard template that you buy online, we take the time to learn about your business and your goals and use that information to prepare documents are drafted specifically for your business. We regularly form corporations and limited liability companies in Massachusetts, Delaware and other jurisdictions. Our lawyers prepare customized corporate charters and by-laws, shareholder agreements, voting agreements, investor rights agreements, and limited liability company operating agreements.
Limited Liability Company
A Limited Liability Company is a formal business structure that offers owner(s) with liability protection while allowing the business to be treated as a proprietorship or partnership for tax purposes. We can prepare legal documents to ensure maximum flexibility and protection to owners. We offer several LLC packages to meet your business’ needs.
A properly established corporation can protect shareholders from personal liability should the corporation be sued. Our attorneys can prepare corporate legal documents to protect shareholders from creditors while allowing for potential growth. We offer several incorporation packages that are designed to meet your business’ needs.
Limited partnerships (LPs) and limited liability partnerships (LLPs) are both businesses with more than one owner, but unlike general partnerships, limited partnerships and limited liability partnerships offer some of their owners limited personal liability for business debts. We offer several partnership packages to fit your business needs and budget.
