Establishing your business as an independent entity has many advantages, including shielding your personal finances from liability for debts or lawsuits incurred by the company. Also, incorporating allows you to make use of the most advantageous tax structure available for you and your company, enabling you to maximize profits for yourself and reinvestment for your business. Finally, issues of ownership, management, and control can all be established in the incorporating documents, so that the business is run the way you want it to run, and your rights will be protected and your interests represented when issues of succession or dissolution arise.
With years of experience in corporate law, we can advise you on the pros and cons of the different entities that are available and help you to select the entity that is most likely to help you reach your business goals. We can help you to establish any of the following Alabama entities:
- Limited Liability Company
- Limited Partnership
- Registered Limited Liability Partnership
- Limited Liability Limited Partnership
Once you have decided on a corporate form, we prepare and file all necessary and appropriate documents so that your company will be officially recognized by the state and meet all requirements for legal compliance. We also assist with on-going maintenance of the company, updating corporate records and assisting with filings as needed.
We can also draft or review any ancillary documents, such as buy-sell agreements, non-solicitation agreements, and covenants not to compete, that further outline the relationship among the business in the event of one of the partners is leaving the business or the business is ceasing operations.
