Business Formation: LLCs, Partnerships and Contracts
We are experienced in advising business clients regarding business formation, operation and the closing down of a business.
Connecticut allows formation of limited liability companies (LLCs) and limited liability partnerships (LLPs). This allows you an even greater array of options in deciding how to structure your business, and we can help you choose the right approach for your situation.
We have assisted clients with the ongoing operation of their businesses by handling the leasing or purchasing of property, developing business forms, obtaining financing and handling employment matters. We have also worked with clients who wish to sell their business or simply wind up their business affairs before moving on to their next venture.
Your Legal Gatekeeper
Many businesses are structured with multiple, specialized departments that handle unique aspects of the business’s affairs. When legal issues arise, they may be contained within one department or they may involve multiple aspects of the business. In the first situation, specific legal expertise may be needed to deal with the specialization of the individual department. When multiple departments are involved, both legal specialists and a generalist, to manage the overall effort, may be needed.
Either way, we can assist you. We can direct you to specialists with expertise in the issue(s) facing your firm. If multiple specialists are needed, we can serve as the general manager, ensuring that all attorneys are working together, that information is shared appropriately and that all issues are addressed to your satisfaction. By bringing our own knowledge of your business to any specialist(s), we can reduce his or her learning curve, making it more efficient and cost-effective.
