Depending on your personal and financial considerations, you may want to consider a Limited Liability Company (LLC), which merges the personal liability protection of a corporation with the tax benefits and closer control of the partnership. We have extensive experience structuring LLCs to help you build a solid foundation that takes full advantage of the unique legal and tax benefits such an entity offers. We will advise and represent you every step of the way – from the initial formation to any ongoing business or legal matters throughout the life of the LLC.
When you’re looking to strengthen your business position and increase market share through a Merger or Acquisition, Hutchens Law Firm can examine, advise you and structure your deal to bolster and protect your interests. Our experienced team will begin by conducting due diligence to examine the business prospect to help establish a sound partnership and investment.
Nonprofits or tax-exempt organizations face their own unique set of complex rules that allow them to operate with tax-exempt status. While they enjoy great benefits due to the public services they provide, they require even greater vigilance due to strict regulatory compliance that governs their special status. You need a keen eye, matched with the knowledge to review operations and keep track of new regulations so that your tax-exempt status is accurate. Whatever your cause and interests, we can help you support them with a guiding hand throughout the life of your nonprofit. From foundations and charities to social welfare and social clubs, we have the experience to advise you on daily interests and compliance issues.
When you enter into a business with one or more partners, you’re rightfully excited and focused on establishing and growing the business with a foundation of trust. But legally there are critical considerations pertaining to management structure, ownership, and control that must be properly addressed so that everyone’s interests can be equally protected. We’ll sit with you to examine your business plans and advise you on the best options for structures to serve your needs and protect your interests. We can also advise you on all ongoing business interests throughout the lifetime of your Partnership.
At Hutchens Law Firm, our team has extensive experience structuring or amending Shareholder Agreements so that equitable arrangements protect the interests of all involved.
