Business Formation Lawyers

Getting Things “In Formation” Right from the Start

Corporate law can be a tricky field. For example, if you recognize that a company’s fate can be determined before Day 1 of business, it follows that early decisions, such as entity type, financing and other legal agreements can set the stage for success or failure. For this reason, it’s critical to work with a law firm that understands your business model and goals and can give you sound legal advice. Early decision-making has a major impact on your business’s chances for long-term success. Selecting the right legal structure—whether sole proprietorship, LLC, LLP, PC or something else—is where it all begins.

That’s why we’re here. If you’re considering starting a new company–or formalizing or changing the legal structure of an existing one—Nexio Law Firm can help. Our experienced business formation attorneys provide counsel and legal representation to many companies in and around Orange County, California. We love partnering with entrepreneurs and other clients who start companies and see them through fruition—whether that means decades of holding and growing the company, or exiting after an IPO.

Again, it starts with smart business formation. If that’s the stage you’re in, let us work with you to choose the right entity to provide the greatest protection against personal liability and maximum tax advantages—and help lay the foundation for long-term success.

Step 1: Determining your needs

Seasoned entrepreneurs know that in order to create a successful business, they must disrupt settled industries. Unfortunately, cookie-cutter business formation services use a one-size-fits-all approach that just doesn’t fit your business. Most people’s inclination is to modify these often poorly drafted documents into something more usable. However, prudent entrepreneurs know that experimenting with a company’s legal structure can create risks. You need a skilled and knowledgeable attorney to help you create the best legal structure for your new business.

Our attorneys take the time to learn your business model and the unique aspects of your company that will affect which business entity is most suitable for you. We help our clients select the right business entity that provides the optimal blend of limited liability, tax saving, financing considerations, apportionment of profits, and safeguarding control.

Our experienced business formation lawyers can help you in the creation of any of the following:

  • C corporations

  • S corporations

  • Limited liability companies (LLC)

  • Limited liability partnerships (LLP)

  • Professional corporations (PC)

  • Partnerships

  • Limited partnerships (LP)

  • Joint ventures

  • Merger and acquisitions

  • Sole proprietorship

Step 2: Business formation

We can help with all legal considerations for your business, including:

  • Entity selection – We help you decide the business structure that is best for your business objectives.

  • Prepare incorporating documents – We will draft all incorporation documents including articles of incorporation, bylaws/operating agreements, acquire EIN number, opening minutes, assist with your first organization meeting, and more

  • Filing – We will coordinate every step of the process of filing and registering your business with the California secretary of state’s office.

Step 3: Help after formation

We like helping business owners turn ideas into viable businesses, and strive to provide continuous assistance at every step along your growth.  We can help you navigate:

  • Shareholder agreements

  • Partnership agreements

  • Employment agreements

  • Vendor contractors

  • Distribution contracts

  • Real estate lease agreements

  • Buyouts

  • And much more.

Additional benefits:

  • Intellectual property assignment agreements
