Guidance throughout the business formation process in Texas
Many factors determine which business entity is right for your new venture. The ownership structure, the size of the operation, how you want to handle taxation, and how you plan to raise capital for operations are among the primary considerations. You might also want to change the form of an existing entity. We can assist in the formation for small and medium-sized businesses using any of the following entities:
- Sole proprietorship
- General partnership
- Limited partnership
- Limited liability partnership
- Limited liability limited partnership
- Limited liability company
- Series LLC
- C Corp
- S Corp
- Professional corporation
- Professional association
- Nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation
Once you have decided on a structure for your business, we can help you file a certificate of formation with the Texas secretary of state. We can also inform you of your duties as an agent for the business, help you draft company bylaws, and advise you on issuing stock in your new company. We remain available to assist with any issues that arise throughout the life of your business.
Drafting your business plan prior to creation
You are not required to have a business plan, but there are numerous benefits to preparing one. First, working on your business plan will help crystallize your vision for your business. The process of creating the plan inevitably brings up issues you had not considered and forces you to plan for contingencies, which could be severely damaging if you had to handle them on the fly.
A business plan can help you attract investors, but a well-executed business plan can also lure in future clients, who might be impressed about the level of thought you’ve given your new enterprise and may see advantages to working with you rather than current trade partners.
We can help you draft your business plan so it makes a positive, professional impression. And, after formation, our business law services continue as we guide you through business transactions and represent your interests in business litigation.
