We understand the challenges of small businesses – after all, we are one too! You have too much to do to spend time with all the legalities of forming and operating a business. Fortunately, that is where we come in. We have decades of combined experience working with entrepreneurs and small businesses and have developed cost-effective ways to get you started and to stay with you as you grow.
Our flexible hourly or fixed fee programs allow us to deep dive into your company and understand what entity form you need (LLC, PLLC, S-Corp, etc.). We will also obtain your EIN, draft your operating agreement and related documents, and serve, if you wish, as your registered agent (in jurisdictions where we are permitted do so).
