San Francisco Business Entity Formation

Starting a business is both exhilarating and challenging.

The form that a startup should take is an important consideration. Partnership? LLC? S-Corp? C-Corp? Choosing can be a daunting task. The implications can be enormous.

Mike recommends a comprehensive approach to business structuring that addresses both the short and longer-term goals of the investors, — in other words, he favors organizing for business success from the start. However, he also recognizes that most start-ups must do all this on a tight budget and on an accelerated schedule. This, too, can be daunting.

Mike’s business formation practice includes:

  • forming partnerships, LLC’s, Subchapter S corporations, and so-called “C-Corporations”
  • developing contingency plans in the form of “buy-sell agreements” that allow businesses to survive outcomes that no one intends at the inception, such as the personal bankruptcy of a shareholder, the arrest and conviction of a key investor, or the death of a business partner
  • creating ownership shares and stock plans
  • obtaining necessary business licenses
  • drafting employee agreements for key employees
  • drafting sound employment policies and building helpful employee handbooks

Mike also can assist with the launching of nonprofits and tax-exempt corporations. He has done so in the past.

He also provides continuing counsel, when appropriate, as businesses that he has helped nurture grow and mature.
