Business / Entity Formation


Business Formation
At McLaughlin & Zerafa, our goal is to assist the entrepreneur in determining which type of business entity best suits their needs. There are many business entities to choose from and understanding the governance, tax and liability issues prior to formation will help your business get off to the right start.

The attorneys at McLaughlin & Zerafa advise business owners on the creation of a business as well as succession planning for the continuation of the business for future generations. Our attorneys work with you in negotiating the Partnership and Business Agreements or drafting Shareholder Agreements and Buy-Sell Agreements. Overall, our attorneys advise clients on the choice of entity that best suits their goals and objectives.

    Some business entities that can be created include, but are not limited to:
  • Sole proprietorship
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC)
  • Partnership (Family Limited Partnership, Limited Liability Partnership or General Partnership)
  • Corporation (C-Corp or S-Corp)
