Creating a New Company
Here at ASG Legal, we can help with both the creation and dissolution of a business or corporation. When forming a new business, there are multiple routes that you can take, and we can guide you through the various options.
You can set up a sole proprietorship, for example, which means that you, or you and your spouse, own the business fully. Responsibility for any matter coming forth from the business is your responsibility. This also means that all profits and earnings are yours as well.
There is also what is known as a general partnership. This means you and one or more other individuals are partners in the new business venture. All partners are equally liable in the event of legal action. In theory, a partnership should also mean that each partner is bringing equivalent means to the operation, whether it be time, money, or talent.
In an LLC or limited liability corporation, you have general partners who are a lot like the partners listed above, but you can have limited partners who are generally investors, often absent from day-to-day operations. Their personal liability is limited to the amount of money that they have invested in your business.
Of course, sometimes you need to close a business. If you are in this position, we can help you with the logistics, as well as determining who should be entitled to what, following the correct procedures, and keeping the process moving fairly and efficiently.
Whether you are starting a new business, are merging with a larger company, or dissolving a company, our business litigation lawyers at ASG Legal are always on your team. Contact us today by calling (850) 863-4064. We look forward to working with you.
