We Can Advise You On Business Formation
At the Sawyer Law Firm PLLC in Fort Worth, Texas, we have decades of experience advising family businesses, entrepreneurs and established companies about all facets of business organization and succession planning. This includes startup, organization and operations.
We also help businesses with succession planning in order to transition to the next generation of ownership and management.
Selecting The Proper Business Entity
Business formation is one of the most important decisions for a new business. Our lawyers help new business clients determine which form best suits their management style, capital structure and risk tolerance. We can help you choose from a variety of forms, including:
- Sole proprietorship
- C corporation
- S corporation
- Limited partnership (LP)
- Limited Liability Company (LLC)
In many estate planning situations, we advise clients to form family partnerships or limited liability companies in order to transfer assets from individual ownership into a separate entity that retains ownership of the assets.
How We Help Businesses Make Decisions
Our lawyers assist businesses with identifying the risks and opportunities involved with such decisions as the acquisition of another business’s assets, divestiture of part of an existing business, merger with another company, joint ventures and the responsibilities of directors and officers in specific situations.
Our objective is to help you maximize business operations while minimizing your exposure to risk.
Business Transactions And Litigation
We can help you with the negotiation and documentation of any agreement to help protect your rights. This could include help with a:
- Sales transaction
- Commercial lease
- Mineral lease
- Licensing or distribution agreement
If any of your business or management relationships break down, we will protect your interests.
