At Poole & Shaffery, LLP, the Santa Clarita business attorneys provide skilled counsel in business formation. Whether a corporation (C-corp, S-corp, flexible purpose corporation or benefit corporation) limited liability company (LLC), a partnership (general or limited) or limited liability partnership (LLP), or matters related to the formation of the correct entity for a joint venture, the firm has the insight and experience necessary to create a business entity that reflects the expected operation and future growth of the enterprise, and that will provide limited liability protection to its owners.
Operational control, taxation, stage of development and potential personal liability concerns must all be evaluated in determining the most effective form of business entity. Some enterprises may initially be established as sole proprietorships and later converted to corporations or LLCs; others, such as joint ventures, may be organized as partnerships, corporations or LLCs as may be most effective under the particular circumstances. In close collaboration with the attorneys at the firm, you can be confident that all of these matters are fully addressed.
Proper business planning at the outset can prevent pitfalls down the road. For example, operational controls among owners and succession of ownership should be addressed at the outset in buy-sell agreements, operating agreements, and shareholders agreements. Thereafter, the firm provides general counsel services to meet the needs of the new entity through its various stages of growth and development. Those services include labor and employment counseling, intellectual property protection, and contract preparation and review.
The firm's Santa Clarita business lawyers operate from strong core values, including integrity, diligence and a commitment to addressing client needs with professional skill. These values define the approach of each member of the firm in any action undertaken to serve its clients. The firm has experienced unprecedented growth thanks to our commitment to service and honest counsel. Many of the lawyers are rated AV (preeminent) by Martindale-Hubbell, based upon ethical conduct and quality of legal work. Well-respected throughout the legal and business community, the firm offers insight and experience in the establishment of all business entity forms and the preparation of all associated documents and agreements.
