Types of Business Entities Covered

Our lawyers specialize in helping businesses establish legal structures tailored to meet their specific requirements, with expertise extending across various types of business entities, such as:

Limited liability company (LLC)

An LLC provides liability protection and flexibility in one convenient package, giving its members limited personal liability while taking advantage of simplified management structures and pass-through taxation.


Corporations are distinct legal entities separate from their owners that offer increased liability protection, offering shareholder, director, and officer structures with distinct organizational responsibilities and well-defined organizational structures.


When two or more individuals form partnerships, their responsibilities, earnings, and liabilities associated with running the company are shared among themselves.

Sole proprietorships

While sole proprietorships do not legally constitute independent businesses, these enterprises are owned and managed by one individual who holds full accountability for all daily operations.

Nonprofit organization

Nonprofit organizations exist for a specific mission without seeking profits for owners. Nonprofits also benefit from certain tax breaks and exemptions, which help make operations simpler.

Professional corporation (PC)

Professionals such as doctors, attorneys, and accountants may opt for the professional corporation structure as it protects them from liability while continuing their practice in their chosen fields.
