Business Organization & Operations

Our Firm’s Business Organization & Operations practice involves the legal and tax analysis of the prospective business including, most particularly, the venture’s capital requirements and the ability of likely investors to utilize “pass through” deductions generated by the enterprise. Depending on the results of our analysis, we may recommend that the new business be organized as a sole proprietorship, sub-chapter “C” or “S” corporation, general or limited partnership or limited liability company (LLC).

Executive & Deferred Compensation
