Starting Your Business Off On the Right Foot
Turning a great idea into a profitable business takes a combination of ingenuity and pragmatism. If it seems like there are dozens of issues to consider, that is because there are. With proper planning and action in the early stages of your business, you can save time, money and stress down the road. Our Plano business formation attorneys guide you through each aspect of the business formation process, including:
- Choosing the right business structure
- Registering your business entity with the Texas Secretary of State
- Creating partnership or shareholder agreement
- Certifying a minority or a historically underutilized business, if applicable
- Obtaining permits and licenses
- Ensuring compliance with federal, Texas and local regulations
- Drafting employment, vendor and client contracts
- Handling commercial real estate transactions
Choosing the Right Business Structure
One of your first decisions in starting a new business is choosing the right business structure. Each type of entity imparts specific benefits and liabilities on your company and its owners. We review your circumstances and goals and consider such matters as taxation, personal liability, ownership transferability, management organization and overall operations before advising you on the business structure that best suits your needs. We then take the steps to form and register the appropriate entity. Potential business structures include:
- Limited liability companies
- Joint ventures
Dissolving a Business Entity
Dissolving a business entity involves more than just closing your doors. We make the process of dissolving your business as smooth as possible. If we were involved in your business’s formation, we included termination or buyout provisions in your partnership or corporation contracts. Regardless, we develop a plan designed to support your best interests and recover the most out of your investment.
Albin Roach also offers mediation services to facilitate negotiation of business dissolution terms. Our mediators are trained to guide parties toward equitable agreements. Through mediation, you may be able to avoid litigation, save money and expedite the process of dissolving your business.
