LLC Formation

What is an LLC?

An LLC is known as a Limited Liability Company. The business is set up to shield the owners (AKA Members) from liability in case of a lawsuit.

Why do I need to form a business?

There are many reasons to form a business entity.  The primary reason is to shield you from liability. Other reasons include tax planning concerns, properly separating business assets from personal assets, adding credibility, and complying with legal requirements.

Why do I need a lawyer to start my LLC?

An attorney will help to prepare your Articles of Organization as well as your Operating Agreement, which governs the rights and duties of Members of your LLC. If your business isn’t properly formed, liability for acts committed by employees or ordinary negligence in the course of business can have an effect on your personal assets and income. There are many concerns when drafting an LLC Operating Agreement, many of which an ordinary business owner wouldn’t consider.
