Organization and Operation of Business Entities

WILG attorneys offer clients reliable legal expertise pertaining to the formation of business entities, including corporations, limited liability companies, joint ventures, general partnerships, limited partnerships and foreign entities. We are skilled in negotiating and drafting organizational documents, as well as documentation necessary for the establishment of financing, licensing, franchising, shareholder and partnership agreements, employment agreements and related transactions.

A substantial portion of our practice involves tax planning for the formation and operation of all forms of business entities. Based on a thorough understanding of each company with which we work, our attorneys create entities that effectively address comprehensive tax considerations. Such planning may include a variety of services, including:

    • Analysis of structure, choice and/or operation of the appropriate form of business entity for the client’s particular business, including corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies (LLC) and limited liability partnerships (LLP)
    • Use and preservation of net operating losses and other tax attributes
    • Analysis of corporation/shareholder transactions, including those pertaining to dividends, redemptions and related party sales
