Choose the Right Business Structure for Your Needs

When starting a new business, one of the most important decisions you'll make is choosing the right business structure. Whether you're forming an LLC, corporation, partnership, or sole proprietorship, each structure has its own advantages and disadvantages. Our experienced Clarksville business formation attorneys can guide you through the process and help you select the best structure for your specific needs.

Some factors to consider when choosing a business structure include:

  • Liability protection
  • Tax implications
  • Management and control
  • Complexity of formation and maintenance
  • Flexibility for growth and changes

By understanding the differences between each business structure, you can make an informed decision that will set the foundation for your business's success. Contact our Tennessee lawyers today for personalized assistance with LLC and corporate formation, as well as any business law and litigation matters.

Protecting Yourself From Liability

Many entrepreneurs and real estate investors choose limited liability companies for liability protection. Our lawyers have the ability to form LLCs and other business entities online through the Tennessee Secretary of State's office, which can save you the time and expense of forming an LLC by mail or having to drive to Nashville.

No one should enter into a business, start a new business venture, or purchase a significant commercial property without choosing the proper business entity. An LLC can:

  • Protect your personal assets from lawsuits and other liabilities involving your business
  • Protect one business from liability as the result of another business you own
  • Protect commercial real estate from liabilities involving another property or business

Drafting Business Startup Agreements

In addition to forming your business, our lawyers can help you:

  • Draft partnership agreements, operating agreements and buy-sell agreements if your business has more than one owner
  • Draft and review commercial contracts
  • Draft employment contracts and non-compete agreements
  • Defend you in lawsuits involving your business
  • Provide the services of a general business counsel
  • Provide business succession planning, including the dissolution and winding up of your business
  • Get in touch with a CPA and other business professionals who can assist you with everything from tax advice to setting up your business' payroll
