Business Formation

Any time you venture into the business world, whether it is the first time or the 10th time, you need to know what ramifications the decisions you make today could have in the future. For example, if you do not choose the right business entity structure today, you may not have the protection you need from future liability. You may also miss out on favorable tax treatment for your business entity.

The Lakewood law firm of Rothstein, Mandell, Strohm & Halm has helped to launch hundreds of businesses in New Jersey over the past 60 years. Our lawyers represent entrepreneurs and partnership groups who want to launch new businesses. We also represent established businesses that want to protect their existing assets from the results and liability of a new venture.

How We Can Help You Get Started

In addition to forming LLCs, C corporations, S corporations, partnerships and other business entities, our lawyers help the startup organization:

  • Draft appropriate buy-sell and partnership agreements so the members understand their rights and responsibilities
  • Limit any personal liability members may have from the results of a business venture
  • Obtain appropriate approvals for the type of business from stage regulatory agencies
  • Draft appropriate documents such as business incorporation documents and resolutions establishing the managing partner of an LLC and describing how proceeds and assets will be distributed
  • Contact appropriate tax advisers to protect the business and obtain the favorable tax treatment

If needed, our lawyers can serve as corporate counsel for the firm, providing ongoing assistance with contracts, collections, acquisitions and other legal services.
