When starting a new business in Oregon, one of the first and perhaps most important issues is deciding which form of business entity to use (e.g., a corporation, an “s-corporation, a limited liability company, etc.). We work closely with clients and their financial advisors to define long-term business goals and to determine which type of entity will best enable the client to achieve those goals. We handle all aspects of business entity formation, qualifying businesses to conduct business in other states where necessary, and providing ongoing legal support of company operations and maintenance of the entity following its formation. We are also well-qualified to assist clients in developing and implementing creative and successful business succession plans.
