Entity Formation & Governance

As a business leader, one of the first choices you will make is the entity type for your venture. A business organization can be formed as a corporation, limited liability company (LLC), partnership, non-profit corporation or other structure. This initial decision will drive your business’ entire governance structure, reporting requirements and tax treatment for the life cycle of the entity. Your maintenance of that entity, and respect for its internal structure and rules, will determine whether the entity survives the rigors of marketplace fluctuations, regulatory scrutiny and litigation, while at the same time serving your business needs and objectives.
