Areas of Expertise
One of the most important decisions that an aspiring business owner makes is determining a legal structure. The structure or form of a business is very important. It can have an impact on income tax, business continuity, and the legal liability the business may be exposed to. There are several types of entities to chose from, and a Liebowitz, Stern & Paruolo LLP lawyer can help you select the one that's right for you.
At Liebowitz, Stern & Paruolo LLP, we help new business owners decide what structure is right for them. Should the new business be a sole proprietorship, a general partnership, limited partnership, limited liability company, closely held corporation, non-profit or partnership? Once that decision is made, we can help with other legal aspects of business formation such as:
*Preparing articles of incorporation & filing them with the State of NJ
*Securing Federal Employer Identification Numbers
*Drafting by-laws or LLC resolutions
*Securing fictitious name registration
*Preparing shareholder, partnership, operating & employment agreements
We help new business owners get their business started on firm legal footing by providing counsel on legal issues such as statutory compliance with formation and registration requirements and form filings with state agencies. Once a new business is up and running, we're here to help the company navigate through other business issues that may develop.
