Forming Your Corporation, LLC, Partnership or Sole Proprietorship
Forming a corporation is a complex process - articles of incorporation and bylaws must be drafted and filed, meetings must be held, minutes must be created and your new corporation must be in compliance with securities regulations.
Orloff & Associates handles all communications with the secretary of state, helps you get started with the business and helps you establish a base of operations. In addition, we draft employee handbooks, non-compete agreements and help you set human resources policies to ensure the smooth running of your business. Orloff & Associates has helped numerous start-up companies in and around Downey and we can provide the assurance that your new corporation has taken all steps to be officially formed and is in full compliance with state regulations.
If a partnership is a better option to meet your needs, we ensure that all necessary aspects of governance have been arranged and are included in your partnership agreement. A provision for the end of the partnership should also be included in case one partner later chooses to leave the business. By taking this step, similar to a prenuptial agreement, you can arrange now to amicably dissolve the partnership if necessary and avoid expensive business valuation and litigation costs in the future.
Orloff & Associates is also skilled at the creation of sole proprietorships. We will draft the formation documents and then create a legal trust through which you own and control your business. If at a future date, you choose to transfer the ownership of your business, we can simply transfer the trust to your chosen successor to avoid common difficulties that sole proprietors face. A trustee, administrator or property manager can also be appointed to oversee the trust and its assets if you pass away or become incapacitated.
