Questions About Forming a Business | What are the Best Forms of Business?

The three basic forms of business are partnerships, limited liability companies, and corporations. I’d recommend speaking with your accountant to see which form is best for your specific company.

Questions About Forming a Business | How Can I Form an LLC?

Clients often ask how they can form a limited liability company—or LLC—in New York. I tell them that we can form an LLC by filing articles of organization with Albany. We will additionally draft an operating agreement and membership certificates. Next, we will publish a legal notice in the newspaper for six weeks to complete the process.

Questions About Forming a Business | What Is a Buy-Sell Agreement?

Questions About Forming a Business | What Is a Shareholder Agreement?
