Business Formation and Advising

Starting, acquiring, selling or operating a business is certainly exciting – but it can also be quite precarious. The decisions you make in these exciting times can impact the entire future of your endeavor. That’s why it’s essential you have experienced counsel to provide clear, comprehensive legal advice during these periods of your business’ lifecycle. The right guidance at the outset can help protect you and your business, now and for years to come.

At Cromwell Law, we take great pleasure in helping entrepreneurs establish or sell their businesses, maximize their investments, and plan for future growth. Through our limited scope representation services, we can participate as much or as little as you like in the process, enabling you to save money on legal costs that can be put toward other areas of your business.

When it comes to business formation, we advise clients on all phases of the process, including:

  • Entity Selection. We work closely with you to identify your business objectives and concerns in order to determine the legal structure that will best protect your interests, provide the strongest tax advantage, and further your goals.
  • Business Establishment. We can assist in any and every step of the formation of your business, no matter whether your company is a Sole Proprietorship or Partnership, Limited Liability Company (LLC), or a Corporation. Among other things, we can draft of all appropriate documents, from partnership agreements to articles of organization, and complete your filing requirements. If you choose, we can also simply outline the steps you need to take to form your business, and provide supplementary legal advice and support as you execute the steps on your own.
  • Registered Agent Services. If your business is an LLC or corporation, you will need a registered agent to accept legal documents and notifications from a state office on behalf of your entity. Cromwell Law can be your Commercial Registered Agent, thereby making ourselves responsible for the receipt of all tax-related documents, service of process, annual report forms and other legal notices directed to your business.

Thanks to our extensive experience in organizing, incorporating and advising start-ups, the attorneys at Cromwell Law understand the needs and concerns of small business owner in forming an enterprise. We listen carefully to your goals and work together with you to explore your legal options as effectively and efficiently as possible.
