Boston Metrowest Business Formation Attorney
Many of our clients are entrepreneurs or small business owners looking to create and grow Massachusetts businesses. Tailoring our advice to our clients’ businesses, we work directly with these clients to help them achieve their goals.
One of the fundamental goals for many businesses is making startup affordable. There can be many costs involved with starting a business, but working with an experienced lawyer can help you minimize these costs by choosing the right business entity. For example, business owners who organize their companies as corporations generally must pay for workers’ compensation insurance, unemployment insurance and taxes. Organizing as a limited liability company (LLC) or limited liability partnership (LLP) does not subject the business to these requirements.
Business Succession Planning
Legal assistance is often needed to make sure that the entity carries on and that key employees have an incentive to stay on after a business owner passes away. The best time to seek this assistance is long before the event occurs and when the business is thriving. At this time, it is often easiest and most cost-effective for business leaders to make decisions about their businesses.
