If you are starting a business in Georgia, you will want to take full advantage of the existing statutes designed to protect your investment under state liability laws and federal tax codes. At times, new owners will try to cut corners to get their business launched under a false belief that they will save time and money. Unfortunately, this leaves the newly formed business exposed to numerous legal pitfalls that could happen without warning. The only safe approach is to speak with an attorney who can help you choose the business formation that best fits your specific needs for a:
- Sole Proprietorship
- Limited Partnership
- Professional Corporation
- Sub-Chapter S Corporation
- Sub-Chapter C Corporation
- Limited Liability Company (LLC)
- Limited Liability Partnership (LLP
All businesses are different and each has its unique needs. A full-service law firm can help you with business planning as well as file the necessary paperwork to protect your interests. In addition to choosing the right entity for the formation, an experienced lawyer can draft employment contracts, non-disclosure documents and other legal agreements designed to protect the viability of your business. He or she can deliver a straightforward assessment of your goals and make sound recommendations for other types of protection, such as business insurance.
