Choosing Your Business Structure
There are three primary options for a business structure. We help you decide which option is right for you by taking you through the pros and cons and helping you understand how each option might impact you in the future.
Advantages of Incorporation
When you start a business, you have options when it comes to how you set it up. While it’s simple and easy to operate as a sole proprietor, there are significant advantages to incorporating your business that you can benefit from in the short and long term.
Incorporating Your Business
Incorporating your business is an exciting step, whether you’re launching something brand new or have been operating for a while. Learn about the considerations you’ll need to evaluate and how we can help you get incorporated—quickly and affordably.
When you’re in business, there’s a lot to protect. Business agreements, like shareholder agreements and contracts with suppliers and customers, help ensure your assets are protected. We work with you to identify risks and ensure you have the right agreements in place as your business evolves.
Before you sign an Offer to Lease, it’s critical that you get expert legal advice to make sure there are no misunderstandings that could cost you in the future. We review commercial lease agreements, point areas that could be problematic, and negotiate on your behalf to ensure you’re protected.
Operating a business can bring a host of challenges. Having the knowledge and experience of a legal consultant who knows you and your business and has your best interests at heart can make a big difference. Find out more about our legal consulting services.
