How Ralph Wilson Law Can Help Your Business Incorporate
We can assist you with choosing the right type of business to establish. While some clients find that being a sole proprietor is within their best interest, this does not provide the legal separation that businesses need. If you are held liable for any business actions that occur and are not properly structured, you can lose your house, car and be held financially liable. This is not what we want for our clients.
Businesses provide too many unknowns. You must incorporate with the proper entity to ensure you are safeguarded. We can help with all types of incorporation, including:
After discussing your business ideas and needs, we can recommend the perfect form of formation for you. Typically, this will either be a corporation or LLC; however, there are numerous options and each provides their own set of challenges and benefits.
These entity options need to be fully understood before the incorporation process begins.
The name that you choose is vital to your business’ identity. If a name is taken or trademarked, you may not be able to use the name legally. There are a few circumstances where this may be allowed, but you need to ensure that you will not be in legal trouble because of your business name.
We provide in-depth searches to ensure that when you finally incorporate, the name of your business is yours alone. The last thing you need is a lawsuit because you are operating with another business’ name.
If stocks are going to be a part of your business, we will be able to ensure stock certificates are filed. This allows the company to be divided among founders based on a pre-determined percentage.
Depending on your operations, licenses may need to be obtained to legally operate within the state. This can be very complicated and not having the appropriate licenses can lead to fines, penalties and further legal issues. There will also be times when permits or registrations are needed by a business.
Every aspect of the incorporation process can be handled by Ralph Wilson Law.
We know that our expertise will allow you to operate a business without ever worrying about legal liabilities. Once incorporated, we will continue to serve you in any way that we can. This can be done for renewals, dissolution, changes of registered agents or the addition of owners.
The business choices you make when incorporating will have a lasting effect on your business. By hiring an attorney to oversee the incorporation process, you will never have to worry about incorporation legalities.
