The two times when a business owner really needs to make the right decisions are at the beginning and the end of the venture. Forming your business properly and ending your business on the right note prevent unnecessary losses due to waste and delay. At Garcia & Gurney, A Law Corporation, our corporate attorneys will help you fully understand the immediate and long-term implications of your choices. We work closely with business owners to determine your goals and present a range of options so you can make well-informed choices.
The legal entity that you choose for your business affects your tax rate, exposure to liability and distribution of profits. Garcia & Gurney, A Law Corporation helps business clients choose from a variety of entities, including:
Business formation does not end with your choice of entity. Also important are your shareholder agreements and corporate bylaws, which act as your company’s constitution. The attorneys at Garcia & Gurney, A Law Corporation draft custom documents that suit your business objectives and those of your partners. Our custom bylaws help ensure compliance with all pertinent state and federal regulations.
Businesses cease operation for a variety of reasons, such as insolvency, partnership disputes and the retirement or death of a key player. Stakeholders in a business can suffer unnecessary losses if they don’t conclude operations by taking the proper steps in a timely manner. Garcia & Gurney, A Law Corporation helps you avoid preventable losses during business dissolution. We work to preserve assets and optimize the value of your company at its conclusion, so you can wind up your business on the best terms possible. We can even advise you on business “divorce” proceedings and business success, so a viable business does not have to cease operations simply because a key player can no longer participate.
Garcia & Gurney, A Law Corporation offers comprehensive corporate legal services for all stages of your business venture, from formation to dissolution. Our reliable advice helps you avoid unnecessary losses no matter what stage your business is in. For trustworthy advice on how to start or conclude business operations in and around Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, call us today at 925-468-0400 or contact us online.
