Choosing the right business structure is the foundation of a successful business. Our team will help you navigate the nuances of corporate structures, help you choose and implement the best structure for you, and grow with your business as it evolves.

There are many benefits to incorporation including protection from liability, tax planning, structure, and business name security.

We will coordinate with your other professionals (most often accountants) to make sure the corporate structure gives you the maximum benefit.

Shareholders/Partnership Agreements
Often the most important relationship in a growing business is between partners or shareholders. We will help you to outline the roles and responsibilities of each individual to remove ambiguity and allow for structured business.
