Our Business Formation Practice
We handle all matters related to the formation of a new business enterprise, from the choice of entity to the filing of the necessary documents to set a company up in compliance with Massachusetts or New Hampshire law. Initially, we will gather as much information as we can about your business. Next, we will carefully explain the different legal forms your business can take, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each, including:
- Sole proprietorships
- Limited liability companies (LLCs)
- Joint ventures
Once we have determined which entity best meets your needs, we will draft and file all the documentation and contracts required to set up your business, including articles of incorporation, articles of organization, operating agreements (for LLCs), partnership agreements, shareholder agreements, by-laws, stock purchase or stock restriction agreements, and employment contracts. We will also handle state and federal tax registrations.
Once your entity is legally established, we will handle all corporate governance matters, including the preparation and filing of any documents required under Massachusetts or New Hampshire business codes.
