Maryland Business Law Attorneys
Whether you are just starting up your business or have been an entrepreneur for quite some time, having the legal information you need on hand is important. As you continue to perform business dealings, you should be aware of your responsibilities as a commercial entity. There are two distinct stages of commercial law in Maryland. First, for businesses that are just trying get on their feet, there is business formation law. Second, for established and practicing businesses, there is business litigation law. Because there is some crossover between the two, we have attorneys who can assist you in both areas.
Business formation law mostly has to do with deciding which type of entity you want your business to become, whether you want to turn it into a corporation or just want a small partnership. From there, our attorneys can make sure that all the proper licensing and documentation has been completed.
Business litigation is vaster in nature. It encompasses everything from contract disputes to negotiating and entering into franchise agreements.
Becoming an entrepreneur is an exciting decision. However, if you are not well-informed about the legal side of business formation in Maryland, you might not start your new business venture off on the right foot. To ensure that you succeed later on down the road, that you don’t give up valuable business rights and don’t run into legal problems, make sure you consult one of the business formation attorneys at Kim & Grillo Law.
Types of Business Formation in Maryland
When you start a business, you have many choices in front of you. Not only do you have to worry about what products and services you are going to provide, but you need to figure out which type of business entity you want to create.
When you’re gearing up for business formation in Maryland, you can choose from the following business options:
- Limited liability companies
- Sole proprietorship
- Professional corporations
Once you have decided that you want to create a business of your own, deciding which type of entity it will be should be your next step. We will assess your circumstances and inform you about the pros and cons of each type of business entity to make sure the form of entity you chose will work for your business goals. You can then use this information to confirm with your accountant which business entity should be selected.
