Business Formations Attorney

LLC, Corporation, and Partnership Formation

Dolan Law Firm can help you solidify your business structure so that you can provide your organization with the best possible chance of success. Entrepreneurs are not afraid to take risks, but it’s still a good idea to have a legal expert in your corner while you’re laying your foundation. Each type of business — whether a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, LLC, or even non-profit — has its own pros and cons. Attorney Michael Dolan will guide you through the nuances of your model’s taxation, necessary licenses and permits, record-keeping requirements, and liability, as well as draft and file all of the necessary documents. An experienced business formations attorney can also help you answer key questions like: Should I incorporate my business? Does an LLC or DBA work better for my model? How do I choose a board of directors?


Do I need a lawyer?

Hiring an attorney now will save you time, effort, and money. Don’t wait until you are facing a lawsuit to get legal advice. Many entrepreneurs procrastinate hiring an attorney until they are served with legal papers. While this is not the end of the world, the problem has already occurred and you will likely have to pay for items such as court costs, lawyer fees, and possibly a settlement fee. An attorney will help prevent hefty costs in the future, assure that you are on sound legal footing, and ease the stress of setting up your new business.

No matter what type of business you are starting up, Dolan Law Firm will help you find the best solutions to your hurdles and help get your business off the ground. Some possible services include:

  • Helping choose the right business organization form to meet your new business’s needs (sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, limited liability company, etc.)
  • Explaining all relevant tax, liability, license, management, and start-up cost issues
  • Drafting all necessary partnership agreements (for new partnerships), articles of incorporation and bylaws (for new corporations), articles of organization and operating agreements (for new LLCs)
  • Drafting and filing all necessary government registration documents, including fictitious business name registration
  • Drafting all necessary tax forms to get your new business up and running
  • Securing all necessary business start-up permits and licenses from local, state, and federal government
  • Helping you decide whether you will need an Employer Identification Number (EIN), and then helping you apply
