Business and corporate law encompasses all aspects of starting, operating or transferring a business. Proper planning for active and passive business structures will help you to achieve the desired financial outcome now and in retirement. Choices of entity include forms of sole proprietorships, corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies. Each entity has its own advantages and disadvantages. Your choice of entity must be based on a variety of considerations including control, ease of formation, management, expense, liability exposure and a variety of tax implications.
Business exit planning is designed to help you to transition yourself out of the daily operation of your business. You may want to reduce your involvement, hand over some control to the next generation while remaining involved or sell it to finance your retirement. This can be a complex situation that will require the coordination of all of your business advisers.
