Business Entity Formation
Starting a new business is an exciting endeavor, but it’s also a time to be very thoughtful about your choices. Selecting the appropriate form of entity at the outset is a critical part of the process.
At Rogers Towers, we offer a dedicated Business Entity Formation Practice Group. These experienced professionals have a deep understanding of the various forms of business entities in Florida, the process for forming and preparing governing documents for each of those entities, and the characteristics and attributes of each.
Where to Begin? (And Where to Incorporate?)
Our Business Entity Formation Lawyers are here to help you and your business navigate the legal and regulatory challenges associated with forming a new business entity, regardless of whether you’re doing business in this state, other states, or even abroad.
We’ve helped to establish a number of successful businesses in Florida, Delaware, and Georgia, and we are equipped to handle every aspect of formation in each of those states. Additionally, we regularly coordinate with local counsel in other jurisdictions throughout the U.S. and abroad (including local counsel in the British Virgin Islands, the United Arab Emirates, and the Bahamas) in connection with business entity formation matters. Wherever you want to do business, it’s likely that we can help.
How Our Florida Business Law Attorneys Can Help
The decisions you make on day one of your business are likely to have significant, long-term ramifications. That’s why it’s so important to get things right the first time. Let seasoned professionals think through every foreseeable aspect with the kind of foresight and due diligence that only years of experience can bring.
Through the thousands of business entities that our lawyers have launched on behalf of our clients, we’ve learned that no two companies are just alike. Our approach, then, is to really understand the “idea” behind your new business, as well as your long-term goals and expectations.
We’ll take a short-term and long-term look at all the issues impacting your business, including:
• Tax planning
• Strategic partnerships
• Revenue generation
• Investors and Partners
• Capital raises
• Succession planning
• Exit strategies
By careful drafting of your business’ operating agreement (or shareholders’ agreement), articles of organization (or articles of incorporation), and other governing documents, our Business Entity Formation Practice Group helps you protect your business interests and accomplishes your business goals and objectives.
