What To Consider When Forming Your Business

At Kinley & Styskal, our business formation lawyers have more than 40 years of experience helping individuals with their new business ventures in Tustin and the surrounding communities.

We will meet with you to obtain an in-depth understanding of your business goals and objectives. We then utilize this information to help you form the right business entity for your needs, and help you take care of all the details necessary to get your business up and running effectively.

What Type Of Entity Do You Want To Form?

When you have decided to start a new business, the first step is choosing the correct business entity to not only ensure that your personal liability is maximized, but also establish the proper entity in relation to the type of company that you are forming. We have experience setting up a variety of kinds of businesses:

  • C corporations
  • Closely held companies
  • Corporations
  • General partnerships
  • Limited liability companies (LLCs)
  • Limited liability partnerships (LLPs)
  • Nonprofits
  • Partnerships
  • S corporations
  • Sole proprietorships

Our attorneys will thoroughly review the advantages and disadvantages of each business entity so you possess the information required to make intelligent and informed decisions regarding your new venture.

What Documents Do You Need?

In addition to helping our clients choose the proper business entity, we will draft all documents on your behalf, including:

  • Articles of incorporation
  • Partnership agreements
  • DBA documentation
  • Corporate bylaws
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Information statements
  • Shareholder agreements

After this process, we hope to leave you in the best position to begin your venture and grow your business.

Why You Need A Business Exit Strategy

Although prospective business owners rarely like to think about potentially closing down their business, part of a comprehensive business formation plan also incorporates an effective exit strategy should you either decide that you no longer wish to be involved in your company, or in case of incapacity or death.

An in-depth exit strategy is a measure designed to reduce conflict in the future and minimize the potential for litigation. We believe in the value of proactive representation, and help you craft the most effective exit strategy for your situation.
