Are You Forming a Business?

Business formation is one of the most critical aspects of starting a new business. Your choice of entity and the manner in which it is formed can result in serious legal and financial consequences if not done correctly and completely. From the outset, our business litigation attorneys can help you select and form the proper business entity in order to best protect your business interest and assets before you even start your operations. We can help you form the business entity that best protects you.

What is Joint Venture?

A joint venture is a business partnership between two or more entities, usually for a project or activity. Businesses choose to form joint ventures to combine resources, expertise, and save money. When a joint venture has formed, all entities share management, profits, and losses per the JV agreement.

There are two ways to set up a joint venture. A separate business entity can be created where the owners contribute their assets, have equity, and decide how the entity should be managed. Another strategy is for the entities to remain separated but operate under an agreement.

Joint ventures can be formed with something as simple as a handshake agreement between two small business owners, however, it is essential to have a contract that specifies the details in writing. The contract should state the purpose for the JV, show how the entities will share profits and losses, and all entities’ roles when it comes to decision-making.

Dissolving a Business?

When businesses cease operations and/or complete their stated purposes they need to be timely and correctly dissolved. If not done correctly, your entity can remain in existence for years before it is administratively dissolved by the Secretary of State. Failing to timely and correctly dissolve your business can subject you to prolonged exposure to unforeseen liabilities despite the fact that your company has ceased operations. Our commercial litigation attorneys can provide you with the legal advice and services needed to timely and correctly dissolve your business.
