Business Formation in California

Choosing the appropriate form of business is an important consideration for business owners, whether it’s the creation of a new business or the evolution of an existing business. The various forms of business structures each offer specific, but differing, advantages. These often include protection of the owner’s personal assets, beneficial tax treatment, ease of ownership transfer, limitation of liability, and more.

The attorneys of Porter Law Group regularly counsel clients as to the best form of business to meet their needs and thereafter work to properly and legally form the business. We work often with sole proprietors of growing businesses who want to gain the asset protection provided by other structures. We also work with owners of businesses whose needs have changed, and whose form of business no longer serves their best interests. Beyond the selection and formation of business structures, our clients also turn to us for legal advice on day-to-day matters affecting their business.

Is your present form of business the right one for you? If you are not sure, or you want to explore the advantages of other business structures, Porter Law Group can help. We will analyze your business and personal needs, and advise you on the business structure that may offer the best fit for your situation, now and for the future. The process is neither time-consuming nor expensive. Contact us, so that we can help you lay this important foundation for your future success.
