Business Formation and Governance
The manner in which a business is formed and structured has a substantial impact on its operations, profits and ultimate success. The structure of a business also significantly affects the rights of shareholders or other holders of equity interests. Our firm has deep experience in forming and structuring entirely new enterprises, creating new subsidiaries of existing companies, and restructuring the operations of groups of companies.
On a regular basis, we assist clients in selecting the proper form of business entity to maximize liability protections and tax-efficiencies. Providing proper initial structuring, or subsequent restructuring, helps facilitate raising debt and equity capital, growth strategies and exit and succession planning, including mergers, acquisitions and divestitures.
