Many people only think to hire a lawyer when they run into legal trouble. However, a business and corporate law attorney can help prevent legal problems from arising in the first place. As a business owner, you must protect yourself against costly legal action and comply with the many legal formalities applicable to businesses in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

At these critical times, a skilled attorney can provide legal advice about the best course of action, giving you a sense of confidence and comfort. Our trusted Attorneys and affiliate Attorneys can advise you and your business partners on a wide range of corporate law issues.
Forming a Partnership or Corporation
For every business, the question of what business structure to operate under is an important one. Our experienced business lawyers can help you identify which of the following business structures best suits your needs and goals.
- PARTNERSHIP. There are many types of partnerships, which depend on the nature of the partnership agreement and the division of responsibility for the business among partners.
- CORPORATION. A corporation offers business owners the benefit of limited liability, but forming and operating a corporation involves certain filing and record-keeping requirements, as well as the observation of corporate formalities.
- S CORPORATION. An S corporation has the same basic structure as a traditional corporation, but offers some of the tax benefits of a partnership.
- LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY. A limited liability company, or “LLC,” provides the limited liability features of a corporation and the operational flexibility of a partnership. There are also certain tax advantages to operating as an LLC.
- SOLE PROPRIETORSHIP. In a sole proprietorship, you alone own the company and are responsible for its assets and liabilities.
