Business & Corporate Law
Regardless if you are the owner of a "small business" with 200 employees, or the only employee, you must make your way through the NY's laws and regulations relating to corporations, limited liability companies, or partnerships.
Starting a business requires thorough planning. We assist business owners in the formation of legally sound business entities. We advise on the business startup and formation process as well as issues related to selection of entity type and jurisdiction, including:
• Subchapter C or S corporation formation
• Limited liability company (LLC) formation
• Partnership formation (including LLP)
• Stock and Asset purchases
Whether you are starting a business, currently operating one, or considering buying/selling a business we can help.
Estate Planning & Adminstration
When a loved one passes away, his or her estate often goes through a court-managed process called probate or estate administration (when there is no will) where the assets of the deceased are managed and distributed. One of the biggest downsides to an estate probate is the length of time needed to complete it. The length of time for completion of probate can depend on the size and complexity of the estate, and schedule of the probate court.
While may not be pleasant to think about death or disability, establishing an estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones.
Proper estate planning puts you in charge of your finances, it can spare your loved ones of the expense, delay and frustration associated with managing your affairs when you pass away or become disabled.
Many times Estate Planning is viewed as only preparing wills, trusts and other ancillary documents. While an estate plan may use some or all of these important documents, estate planning is the process to determine which tools are best for our clients' specific goals and concerns. We strive to identify what is most important to each client, and design a plan to meet those specific values, goals and needs.
