Choosing the Right Business Entity

Our business startup attorneys help set up and incorporate the following business structures:

Sole Proprietorships: Unregistered businesses that are owned and run by just one person. As a sole proprietor, you are responsible for paying your personal and self-employment taxes on your business profits. With this type of entity, you will also be liable for debts and legal actions against your business, as your company is not a separate legal entity from the owner.

Partnerships: In this business structure, two or more people share the ownership and profits of a business. There are two common types of partnerships:

  • Limited Partnerships (LP): Consists of at least one general partner, with unlimited personal liability, and one limited partner, who is liable to the extent of the investment he has contributed to the partnership. 
  • Limited Liability Partnership (LLP): In this type of general partnership, the business is a separate legal entity from its members. The partners benefit from pass-through taxation, and they are somehow protected from debts and other liabilities according to what they invested in the company.

LLCs: Limited liability companies are the most common business entities for the level of protection they offer and their flexibility. With an LLC, the personal assets of the members are protected, and they may be able to select their taxation model.

Corporations:  With this type of legal entity, the company is separate from its owners, who are called shareholders. Corporations offer the strongest protection from liability but also require a higher investment and extensive reporting procedures. Unlike the rest of the business entities, they pay income on their profits and can be subject to double taxation.

  • C corps: They are the default tax designation under IRS rules. They pay taxes at the corporate level and face the possibility of double taxation. 
  • S corps: This taxation entity allows profits and losses of the business to be “passed-through” and reported on the owners’ personal income tax.

Dema A.
Danya has been excellent to work with. I've worked with Danya on creating standardized contracts for my business as well as having her review contracts that need my signature and I need guidance on. Danya has been very responsive and has taken the time to understand what our needs are for each contract to ensure they are correct.
Rich E.
Danya was a recommendation from another friend/business owner and I am glad to have chosen her to help represent my case. She was very knowledgeable in the strategies and fact findings to be able to help build a solid case and we were able to settle my case out of court without further extension and costs.
