Over the years, our business formations lawyers in Santa Rosa have helped countless businesses get started, businesses that still thrive in the community and still turn to us for efficient and cost-effective results.

Choosing a Business Entity in Santa Rosa

When it comes to formation, new businesses have several entities that they can choose from, including:

Limited liability companies (LLC) and operating agreements
Small business incorporation (S-corps, C-corps)
Partnerships and partnership agreements

Making the right choice depends not only on the type of business, but on a variety of other factors as well. In order to help you choose the right business entity, our attorneys will analyze liability and risk issues. We will consider insurance issues. We will even work with your accountant to review tax issues.

When we make our recommendation about business entity formation, you can be confident that it is based on the unique needs of your business.

Moving Your Business Forward

The services we offer for emerging businesses go beyond simply choosing an entity. There are other steps that need to be taken to protect your business and to guide your business down the right path. We will work with you to make certain these steps are taken.

Preparing company policies, developing procedures and designing employment contracts are just some of the early steps that all businesses need to take.

From the start, we take the time to get to know your business. We want to build a personal relationship. We want you to know that we're the law firm that you can come back to whenever your business is faced with a legal issue that needs to be resolved. We are available to provide business consulting services throughout the life of your business.
