Formation & Organization
Many of our corporate attorneys have served as general counsel at privately-held, equity-backed and public corporations. We leverage this experience to effectively counsel both established and emerging businesses as they grow.
As experienced business lawyers, we advise and counsel our clients, founders, directors and managers of privately held businesses. This includes formation considerations from partnerships, limited liability companies to S-Corps and the impact of such decisions for closely held businesses including family-owned businesses.
We guide our clients and prepare all the various agreements to form entities for private businesses. The organization of these new entities requires a wide variety of related agreements such as shareholders agreements, operating agreements, employment agreements and cross purchase agreements, as circumstances dictate. The business attorneys at Wilchins Cosentino & Novins advise business owners and directors of formation and organizational decisions to support your goals and protect your business interests.
