CONTACT OUR BUSINESS PLANNING & BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP ADVISORS

If you are looking to start a new business, the initial planning stage can be critical. Make sure you have experienced business advisors and counselors in your corner from the onset. 

Management Consulting Services

Our team goes beyond formation advice to consistently provide support services throughout the duration of our clients' business endeavors. Our involvement is diverse in scope and includes corporate governance, business counseling services, contracts, transactions, and litigation.

An important aspect of forming a successful, legal business entity is preventing liability exposure. To properly determine the type of business entity that needs to be formed our team would ascertain a range of questions at our initial consultation. Beyond liability exposure, we will discuss additional areas of concern you may have, including corporate governance issues, e.g., minutes, meetings, and ways of properly operating your business.  The liability protections offered by incorporating can be lost if your business does not maintain its’ charter (i.e. fails to act as a duly incorporated entity). Fortunately, our law firm has been handling tax, and business law matters for more than 20 years. We understand the law and look forward to putting our experience to work for you.

Transactional Services

The Tax and Immigration Team also assists small business and entrepreneurs in performing due diligence work and provides services related to the following:

  • Buying & selling of businesses

Company Formation 

Starting a business requires more than simply filling out forms. To properly handle a business formation, an experienced business attorney will take time to meet personally with clients, understand their goals, and identify the best structure to accomplish those goals. The Tax and Immigration team has years of experience providing comprehensive support to clients starting new businesses in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. We advise clients on a number of matters, including liability exposure and other important aspects of business entity selection of:

  • Partnerships

  • Limited liability companies (LLCs) or Limited Liability Partnerships (LLP)

  • Corporations

    • Sub-chapter S Corporations (S Corp.)

    • C Corporations (C Corp.)
