Business Formation Attorney In Orange County

If you are forming a business in California, it is important to get a strong start and choose the business entity that is best suited to your goals.

Without advice from a knowledgeable attorney, you could be building your business on a shaky foundation. At the Law Office of Drew Petersen, I am here to help you make the right decisions at this critical stage in your business. I provide sound business law guidance to clients in Orange County and throughout Southern California.

Business Formation Factors

There are many choices that are made at the business formation stage that have significant future consequences. The decisions you make today will affect everything from how your business is taxed to how much personal liability you will have. Questions to consider when choosing a business entity include:

  • What type of business are you forming?
  • How much liability exposure can you tolerate?
  • How many owners are there?

Only after a careful review of your business goals can I guide you toward the business entity that is right for you. Common business entities include the limited liability company (LLC) and corporations, which can be C-corps and S-corps.

Cost-Effective General Counsel Services

I also provide outside general counsel services, giving business clients a cost-effective means of navigating the day-to-day legal challenges of running a business. The cost of inside legal counsel is prohibitive for many businesses, but sound advice is often needed. With my services, you only pay for legal advice when you need it.
