Business Entity Formation and Restructuring

We provide guidance on the choice of a business entity (including an analysis of "S" corporations, "C" corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies), assist in the analysis of buyouts or redemptions of other business owners and provide tax planning advice associated with the start-up, purchase or sale of ongoing businesses.
