Business Law FAQs
In business law, the term “legal formation” refers to the process of creating a business entity. This can be done in one of several ways, including incorporation, partnership, or LLC formation. Each option has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to choose the business structure that best suits your needs. Incorporation provides limited liability protection for business owners, meaning that they are not personally responsible for business debts. Partnerships and LLCs, on the other hand, offer flexibility in terms of ownership and management. Ultimately, the best business structure for your company will depend on a variety of factors, including the size and scope of your business, your risk tolerance, and your goals for the future.
Be sure to contact Sentinel Law Firm for a consultation, and let us help determine which business structure would best fit your unique business needs.
The Articles of Incorporation is a document that establishes the existence of a company. It is filed with the state in which the business will be conducted and is one of the first steps in incorporating a business. The Articles of Incorporation must contain certain information, such as the business’s name, address, and the names of its incorporators. It also includes a statement of the business’s purpose and how it will be structured. Once the Articles of Incorporation are filed, the business can begin to operate. However, it is important to note that the Articles of Incorporation are not a complete legal document-they are simply a way to establish that a company exists.

When starting a business, one of the first decisions you will need to make is what business structure to choose. Two common business structures are sole proprietorships and LLCs. A sole proprietorship is a business owned and operated by one person. LLCs, on the other hand, are business entities that offer limited liability protection to their owners. This means that the owners of an LLC are not personally responsible for the debts and liabilities of the business. LLCs can be owned by one or more people, and they are governed by state business laws. When deciding which business structure is right for you, it is important to weigh the pros and cons of each option. Sole proprietorships are simpler and less expensive to set up than LLCs, but they offer no liability protection to their owners. LLCs offer greater protection for their owners, but they require more paperwork and may be subject to higher taxes. Ultimately, the decision of which business structure to choose depends on your specific needs and goals.
