Corporate formation

A corporation or limited liability company is a business, organization or company formed by a group of people that has rights and liabilities separate from those of the individuals involved.  Whether formed as a non-profit, for profit or for municipal purposes, in the eyes of the law, a corporation or limited liability company has many of the same rights and responsibilities as a person. It may buy, sell, and own property; enter into leases and contracts; and bring lawsuits. It pays taxes. It can be prosecuted and punished (often with fines) if it violates the law. The chief advantages are that it can exist indefinitely, beyond the lifetime of any one member or founder, and that it offers its owners the protection of limited personal liability.  Through careful planning and creation, we will create a corporation or limited liability company that properly fits your needs.
