Planning Is Key
Monroe County small-business lawyer Joseph McDonald Jr. has more than 25 years of practice experience. At the firm, we emphasize the planning aspect of starting and operating a business. Specifically, developing a sound financial business plan that separates personal liability from the company's liability, which is essential in protecting yourself and your assets. We focus on protecting clients from creditors through the early business planning stages. In addition, having a solid plan at the start, as well as reviewing and updating it over time, can increase your ability to adapt to the change in market and economy.
We assist small-business owners in identifying their needs and goals so that they can choose the most appropriate entity form. From corporations and LLCs, to partnerships and closely held businesses, this choice will make a significant impact on revenue, taxes and other key issues.
Staying Up To Date
Depending on the type of business model you choose or have chosen for your business, there may be requirements you must comply with. For example, corporations must conduct an annual meeting. We help our clients by making sure they are notified of and take the steps to fulfill these obligations. We review long-term business decisions with clients to help them avoid mistakes.
