Business Formation And/Or Dissolution
The decisions you make at the business formation stage will profoundly affect your business for life. The choice of business entity affects a broad range of issues, from how profits are divided, to tax implications, to the amount of personal liability the owners incur.

- Limited liability company (LLC)
- Limited liability partnership (LLP)

- Traditional partnerships (limited and general)
- Joint ventures

We are a full-service business law firm that can help you with today's formation needs and all of the business transactions and litigation you may face in the future.
After your business has run its course, sold its assets, or has unmanageable debt the firm can also assist its business client with an efficient wind down and dissolution.
Corporate governance is all too often overlooked, but an effective means of risk management is essential to a company's well-being and protection of its principals. With sound policies and procedures in place, it is often possible to avoid legal problems or sharply mitigate the damage they cause.
Our law firm provides skilled corporate governance representation to California businesses. We can help you navigate all of the regulatory and compliance issues you may face, including yearly minutes or actions, updated state and federal filings, financial reporting, internal investigations and audits, executive successions and more.
Our comprehensive approach to business law allows us to see the big picture when guiding you through yearly governance and other business law matters.
