Skilled Business Formation Guidance To Protect Your Interests

Starting a new business or taking an existing enterprise to the next level is an exciting endeavor. Forming a new entity takes more than filing documents with the state of New Jersey. It takes a strategic vision and attention to the future needs of the organization. Choosing the wrong type of entity or failing to address important details in the governing documents can result in unexpected adverse consequences as the company grows. The law office of Benjamin Appelbaum, Attorney at Law, provides sound legal counsel and quality guidance to entrepreneurs and professionals to help ensure that their ventures are organized for success.

Business Formation Requires Much More Than Filling Out A Form

A simple online form to create a business does little to inform you of the potential pitfalls that your company could face in future years. When you work with our firm, we take the time to understand your goals, the nature of your business, as well as your financial and liability concerns, to advise you about your legal options to craft the best strategy to protect you, your company and any intellectual property interests you may own.

New Jersey law recognizes a variety of business forms, but no single type of entity is right for every new business. Each form has advantages and potential drawbacks that will have an impact on your operation for years to come. It is critical for you to understand all of the pros and cons to allow you to move forward with confidence.

Get Experienced Advice About Your Legal Options

We will explain your options in organizing a business, including the differences in tax treatment and liability protection that each business form provides and how they apply to your business plan. Common New Jersey business formation options include:

  • Corporations, including S corps and C corps
  • Professional corporations
  • Limited Liability companies (LLCs)
  • Limited partnerships (LPs)
  • Limited liability partnerships (LLPs)
  • Joint ventures
  • Sole proprietorships

We assist business owners every step of the way, from choosing the entity best-suited for their unique circumstances to drafting legal documents, such as articles of incorporation, operating agreements or partnership agreements, to ensure that your interests are protected.

Reviewing Existing LLC Documentation To Ensure Compliance With Changes To The Law

Existing LLCs turn to Benjamin Appelbaum, Attorney at Law, for a thorough review of their operating agreements. Recent changes in the New Jersey laws governing LLCs can create unintended consequences for LLCs if their documentation includes provisions that no longer comply with the law. New default rules may also adversely impact an ongoing company if the operating agreement fails to properly address matters recognized under the new LLC laws.
