Legal Advocacy For New And Existing Corporations
Starting a business is an exciting venture, but you have a wealth of decisions to make regarding proper corporate formation and governance. The type of business entity, legal agreements, transactions and governance rules can set the tone for a company’s success.
At the law offices of Miles Hansford & Tallant, LLC, our corporate attorneys offer legal solutions that help clients start new businesses or make changes to the formation of a current business. Our years of entity and governance experience allow us to provide skilled guidance for contracts, agreements and every element of corporate governance.
Choosing A Business Entity
How do you decide whether to start a corporation, partnership or limited liability company (LLC)? Each entity has a different management structure and tax structure, as well as reporting requirements. Our lawyers have long, strong experience assisting clients with these and other corporate and business decisions.
