Business Planning and Formation

Print PDF

Our Business Practice Group counsels clients in all aspects of business formation and development, drawing on the firm’s tax, employment and intellectual property practice groups as needed. Working closely with each client, we encourage all parties to think ahead and plan for the future. Our goal is not just to create new business structures but, with careful planning, to structure business arrangements that in the future will avoid unnecessary problems and enhance growth and personal satisfaction. We do this by listening to our clients and developing a clear understanding of their needs and goals.

Depth of experience.

We regularly advise clients on the selection of the appropriate choice of entity in which to conduct their businesses and then prepare all necessary business and tax documentation. We are experienced in the formation and operations of all types of business structures, including “C” and “S” corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships (limited, general and limited liability), and Massachusetts business trusts. We also advise clients in the creation of professional corporations and not-for-profit entities when appropriate.

In addition to counseling clients on options available in structuring and documenting businesses, our long-term participation in the region’s business community enhances our ability to get a deal done. Our many years of involvement in equity and debt financings have been invaluable to start-up and established businesses alike in identifying financing sources and structuring favorable transactions.

We add value.

We add value to each new entity or venture by considering and addressing existing ownership and management dynamics, equity incentives, financing options, liquidity strategies, employment issues and protection of intellectual property. Our extensive experience allows us to address these matters quickly and efficiently and with practical advice.
