Leading Attorneys for All Corporate and Business Needs
At Hourigan, Kluger & Quinn, our Corporate Law Attorneys work with new and existing businesses and entrepreneurs in Northeastern Pennsylvania and throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to assist the clients in deciding on the best ways to maximize their success in forming, governing and managing all kinds of business entities. We focus on how business entities are formed and managed as there are numerous types of business structures to choose from, including sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies, limited partnerships, corporations, trusts and business and professional corporations.
Partnerships and corporations each have various subcategories of possible business entities such as limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships, Subchapter S Corporations, C Corporations and in some cases, joint business ventures between various entities. Each type of business structure has its advantages and disadvantages, including different legal and tax issues that must be considered to make sure that the best choice is made.
At Hourigan, Kluger & Quinn we provide not only guidance on selecting the type of business structure which best suits the legal needs of the client, but also on forming the entity and providing governance guidance while working with the client’s accountants.
