Choice of Entity

The foundation of business success is based on a proper choice of entity form and the effective design of that business structure.  Much like a towering oak with a compromised root system that can be toppled by strong winds, businesses depend on a successful business formation process to cope with adversity in the form of liability to consumers, contract disputes, regulatory challenges, and other commercial issues.  The attorneys of our Greenville business formation law firm bring decades of experience and a proven track record of forming businesses and positioning them for success across a wide range of industries.  We can assist in skillfully crafting essential documents and provide legal advice and representation to newly formed businesses, such as:

  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Sales and purchases of commercial property
  • Operating agreements
  • Liability waivers
  • Contract negotiations
  • Sales contracts
  • Partnership agreements
  • Business formation documents
  • Product and service disclaimers
