Business Law

Starting a new business is an exciting and yet stressful time. There are a variety of very important decisions that must be made along the road to formation and operation of your business. At Jensen Sondrall Persellin & Woods, P.A., we appreciate your enthusiasm for your business and our attorneys have the tools and the knowledge that you need to help you succeed.

One of the most important decisions a business owner will make is deciding which type of entity to form; this decision potentially affects every aspect of the business operation. For example, the following commonly formed entities are all subject to varying tax treatment and management requirements:

  • LLCs
  • LLPs
  • Corporations
  • S-Corps
  • Partnerships
  • Joint Ventures
  • Closely Held Businesses

We provide all of our business clients with the knowledge that you need to help you make the most informed decision possible so you wind up with an entity that is tailored to your specific goals and needs. Once the initial decision is made determining entity type, we advise our clients about directors' and officers' liability, dissolution, franchising, reorganization, trade association membership and activity, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, business successions and shareholders' rights. It is these decisions that ultimately provide the foundation which guides the course and direction of the business. If you bring your goals and ideas, we will do our best to provide the rest.
