We Help Pennsylvania Businesses Succeed, Beginning From Day One
Long before you open the doors of your new business, you must confront and answer a seemingly endless list of questions:
- Where should I set up my new business?
- How do I handle hiring employees and other day-to-day matters?
- How do I stay competitive in a challenging economy?
As a firm dedicated to seeing local businesses succeed, we can help you answer all these questions. Before we get to these matters, however, we must settle a much more basic — but extremely important — legal issue: What type of business will yours be?
Helping You Make Sense Of Your Options As A Business Owner
The type of business you incorporate as can have profound effects on both your business and yourself in the months and years to come. Personal liability, tax benefits, business needs — these are but some of the many issues that come into play as you decide how to structure your new enterprise.
Our firm offers the guidance of experienced attorney Joseph McDonald. During his nearly 30-year legal career, he has been a champion of the region’s small and medium-sized businesses. Because we understand that a corporate structure sets the tone for the rest of a business’s life cycle, we make sure that our business clients start off on the best possible legal and financial footing.
When you meet with us, we will discuss the advantages and potential liabilities associated with the main types of business structures:
- Sole proprietorship
- General partnership
- Limited partnership
- Limited liability company (LLC)
- Limited liability partnership (LLP)
Once equipped with the necessary knowledge, you will be able to make a decision that is in your and your business’s long-term best interests. Then, we can work together to get your business off the ground and on the road to success.
When it comes to our small-business clients, we work as a team. This means that we’ll work closely not just with you, but also with your other advisers — tax planners, accountants and others — to help you streamline the management of your business.
