If you are starting out in business, choosing a business entity is one of the most important decisions you may make. There are several different ways to structure a business varying from sole proprietorship to partnerships and various corporations.
When choosing an entity, there are several factors to consider, including:
- The need to protect your personal assets from liability incurred by the business
- Tax considerations
- How your business will be managed
- How ownership interests will be transferred
One of the most effective business entities is a limited liability company (LLC). It offers protection for your personal assets and tax advantages. There are also fewer state regulations than for some types of corporations. Trae Bertrand can discuss the benefits of an LLC with you and decide if this is the right approach for your business.
In the course of your business, you’ll likely encounter contracts between employers and employees, between contractors and subcontractors, and with vendors. Contracts can facilitate buying and selling real estate and personal property and many other transactions. Whether you need a contract drafted or need a Cape Girardeau business lawyer to review a contract before you sign it, Bertrand Law Firm can help.
No matter how perfectly your contracts are drafted or how well your business is structured, you may still become involved in a business dispute that cannot be resolved without litigation. Bertrand Law Firm focuses on settling disputes as quickly as possible so that your business is not interrupted. Whatever your business needs, Trae Bertrand is committed to always acting in your best interest.
