“Start-up” can be an electric phase for many new ventures and their founders. It is a time when you, the founder, are shaping your vision and taking risks. It is also one of the most important times to consult with an attorney, as the decisions you make could have far reaching legal effect. Contact the attorneys at Penwell Bowman + Curran to talk about your venture. We’re here to help you navigate the start-up phase like a seasoned entrepreneur.
So what will working with us to start your business look like? We listen first. Our priority is to gain a deep understanding of both your short and long-term goals for the venture so that we can design a legal solution that helps you reach those goals. You’re not simply a few billable hours to us. Instead, we want to earn your trust, become an integral part of your company’s team of experts and assist you through all the phases of your business.
After we understand your goals, we will work with you through the pre-formation and tax planning process, so you can best structure your entity for success. This will include helping you select an entity type, be it a sole proprietorship, general partnership, limited partnership (LP), limited liability company (LLC), corporation or “s” corporation. With that decision in place, we’ll work to draft and negotiate your entity’s organizational documents, including articles of incorporation, bylaws, articles of organization, operating agreement, partnership agreement, and limited partnership agreement.
