Setting Your New Business Up for Success
Starting a business in New York can be thrilling, but it takes a great deal of effort and attention — and sound legal advice. You may know that the type of entity you choose for your business startup affects your taxes. Did you know the right business entity can protect you from personal liability for business debts?
At Librett Friedland, LLP, we can help you choose the most appropriate business entity, based on your management style, risk tolerance and financial needs. We routinely set up business entities for clients such as:
- Limited liability companies and partnerships (LLCs and LLPs)
- General and limited partnerships
- S-corps and C-corps
- Professional corporations
If you start your business without choosing an entity type, the default entity is a sole proprietorship — the least favorable one for most organizations. A business lawyer from Librett Friedland, LLP, can explain how to set up and maintain your business entity.
Business Contracts and Transactions
As a going concern, your attention should be on serving your customers and making a profit, not quibbling over contract terms. We can assist you with sound, enforceable contracts, employment agreements, confidentiality and non-compete agreements, vendor and service agreements, and more. Contact Librett Friedland, LLP, before making a decision on any major business transaction — we will review the paperwork and protect your interests.
Should a dispute arise, we are experienced trial lawyers who can take your case to court.
Buying, Selling and Winding Down Businesses
When opportunity knocks, will you be ready to answer? Librett Friedland, LLP, can help you perform the necessary due diligence before you buy a company or purchase business assets. If you receive an offer to buy you out, you cannot afford to make a decision without having a lawyer review the paperwork.
We also help family businesses plan for succession or wind your company down in an organized, professional way.
