Setting up a business? The most common business entities include limited liability companies, corporations, and partnerships. Our attorneys will guide you in creating the entity that works best for you.
The type of legal entity you form can impact the way your business operates every day. While many entrepreneurs choose to run their companies as sole proprietorships or general partnerships, other legal entities may offer you more benefits and protections.
Forming a Limited Liability Company (LLC) offers business owners a level of protection for their personal assets if the company, business partners, or employees face a lawsuit. LLCs are pass-through companies, meaning the owners pay taxes, but the companies do not. Additionally, Limited Liability Companies don’t require you to implement job titles. This is the preferred structure for many small businesses.
Just because you have an LLC doesn’t mean you’re immune from disputes. If you don’t set a written agreement detailing how the company will be run, you could still run into issues with your employees and customers. An operating agreement is a document that details how the company will be managed, how profits and losses will be distributed, how members will handle buyouts, and how the business will be dissolved.
Corporations are generally thought to be a suitable structure for large companies, but smaller businesses can also incorporate them. If your corporation goes public, any number of investors can buy and sell the company stock through markets such as Nasdaq or The New York Stock Exchange.
Corporations have a set structure in which shareholders have a say in how the company is run. With this type of legal entity, it is essential to keep detailed records. Because corporate law can change frequently, it is best to have an attorney in Augusta who can stay up to date on these regulations and ensure your business remains in compliance.
There are times when businesses face challenges and need to go through formal closure procedures within the state. Our legal team is here to help you navigate the “winding up” process while ensuring that you comply with all the laws related to dissolution.
Our attorneys have expertise in reviewing and drafting contracts across various industries, including customer agreements, employment contracts, asset purchase agreements, privacy policies, and more.
Our attorneys provide valuable assistance to both employers and employees, guiding them through complex transactional matters such as employment contracts and negotiations for severance packages.
GDPR, which stands for General Data Protection Regulation, imposes strict rules for handling personal data. Our attorneys can provide comprehensive guidance on how to comply with these requirements, helping businesses understand their legal obligations regarding the use and storage of personal data.
With a wealth of knowledge in intellectual property matters, our attorneys can help you register your intellectual property or defend against third parties who are infringing upon your intellectual property rights.
Whether you’re looking to acquire another business entity or sell your own, our Mergers and Acquisitions attorneys can assist you with these complex transactions, ensuring that you meet all legal requirements and protect your best interests.
A release of liability is an important legal document that protects individuals or businesses from legal and financial responsibilities. Our attorneys will make sure that the release includes appropriate language, complies with relevant laws, and is fair to all parties involved.
