Northern Virginia Attorneys - Business Entity Formation

Critical to starting a business is determining the appropriate corporate structure. Make sure that you have the legal assistance you need to make informed decisions from the outset.

  • Contact Hale Ball: Business Law Division attorneys Robert Baumgartner and Scott Pohlman in Fairfax, Virginia, for assistance. We apply a combined 30 years of experience to helping business owners get off on the right foot.
  • If you are considering forming a limited liability company on line - please review our comparison of the costs and benefits of using an on-line service versus using Hale Ball. We take the time to understand your situation and advise you how to run your business lawfully.

Analyzing What Entity is Right for You

When you are establishing a new business, every decision you make has repercussions. Some may be good; others may hamper you financially or legally. Perhaps the most important choice you will ever make in business formation, the choice with the most far-reaching consequences, is your choice of business entity.

Hale Ball: Business Law Division is happy to discuss your business formation options with you and analyze your business goals to help you come to a decision that best suits your needs. Whether or want to organize a limited liability company or incorporate a corporation, our attorneys are skilled at analyzing the business, financial and legal implications of choosing, organizing or incorporating any one of the following entities:

Since making decisions on the best entity and tax status involves tax and IRS issues, we strongly recommend contacting an accountant. Our resources include accountants other clients have had success with.

Devising Documents for Organization and Stabilization

Once you have chosen an entity, let our firm help you make further decisions concerning corporate governance and organization. Our practice is designed to help you map out and design future activities, setting parameters so that you can focus on your business.

We will address two areas of documentation that allows for this: the base organization documents and the corporate control and stabilization documents. The base documents are those that are necessary for all companies. For example, all corporations should have organizational minutes, bylaws, employment agreements, subscription agreements and should issue stock certificates to all shareholders. Documents for corporate control and stabilization between owners include shareholder agreements, operating agreements, covenants not to compete, confidentiality agreements and other contracts that protect intellectual property and prevent corporate instability in the event of a resigning shareholder or partner.

At Hale Ball: Business Law Division, your priorities really are our priorities. Contact us today at 703-763-4687 to speak with lawyers Robert Baumgartner or Scott Pohlman about choosing the business entity and organizational strategy that best suits you. Let’s forge a long-term, dynamic business relationship together.
