What We Do

Meeting Your Business Needs

As business attorneys, we often act as full-service outside general counsel, particularly when businesses don’t require or have the budget for full-time legal staff. Our objective is to assist clients in establishing long-term business strategies, guiding them through development, management, and operational growth while minimizing legal risks and planning proactively for the future.

Drawing on our extensive experience as corporate business attorneys in New York City, Wyoming, UK and California,  we advise clients on various aspects of their business operations. From choosing the appropriate business entity to handling corporate governance matters and compliance, we provide comprehensive legal support.

Formation and Governance

One of the initial decisions a business must make is selecting the form of entity under which it will operate. Our attorneys assist in identifying the most suitable structure, such as a limited liability company (LLC), corporation, professional corporation, professional limited liability company, partnership, etc. We then draft and file the necessary documentation to establish the chosen entity. Our focus is on navigating legal hurdles so that your business thrives.

After formation, we ensure compliance with corporate governance matters, providing organizing resolutions, and overseeing the approval of policies like by-laws. When bringing on partners or additional shareholders, we draft and negotiate agreements, such as founders agreements, operating agreements, shareholders agreements, and partnership agreements.

Maintenance Matters

We guide clients in following legal requirements and observing best practices related to maintenance, including keeping an up-to-date corporate record book, conducting routine meetings, and maintaining written resolutions. This proactive approach ensures compliance and reduces the need for catch-up work in the future.
