Business Formation And Startup Support
The formation of a new business should preferably be done with the assistance and legal advice of an experienced business law attorney. With knowledgeable legal counsel attuned to your business goals, the most advantageous and appropriate business structure can be determined.
I am Patricia Davis, a business lawyer with over 35 years of experience. I am also a small business owner who understands the challenges and anxieties of starting an enterprise. Together we will game-plan your business formation and the foundation for success. I have helped hundreds of startups in Houston and throughout Texas and Oklahoma.
Entity Selection Is An Important Decision
There is no “best” business entity. It depends on your type of business, the product or service you are offering, your risk tolerance, who will manage operations, your plans for growing the enterprise and other factors. I can help you explore the pros and cons of organizing as:
A small business owner working out of his/her home without employees may be able to establish a sole proprietorship as the best structure for that business. A somewhat larger business with employees and an office may wish to protect some of these assets through the veil of a corporation. An LLC also offers distinct benefits, such as pass-through taxation.
