Business Formation

Arizona Business Formation Lawyers

Prescott Mergers & Acquisitions Lawyers

If you are starting a new business, it is important to get sound legal advice. Business owners who make mistakes in the business formation process may end up facing unnecessary costs, internal disputes, IRS audits and other serious — and avoidable — consequences. At The Carman Law Firm, our Prescott business formation attorneys offer clients affordable legal guidance through the business formation process, as well as assistance with the restructuring of existing business entities.

Making Sure Your New Business Is Set Up Properly from the Start

The advice and guidance of an experienced attorney during the business start-up process is an investment that will pay off as your business grows and develops. Our firm assists Arizona businesses with all aspects of business formation, including the following:

  • Entity selection and registration: Our attorneys will evaluate your business goals to determine whether you should organize as a corporation, limited liability company (LLC) or other entity. We will then file the necessary paperwork to complete your registration.
  • Ownership and control agreements: Clarifying exactly how your business will be run can prevent future conflicts. We help clients negotiate and draft shareholder agreements, partnership agreements, buy-sell agreements and other business ownership agreements.
  • Mergers and acquisitions: Our attorneys are highly experienced at guiding businesses through the merger and acquisition process, which typically involves complex legal transactions followed by the restructuring of the existing and resulting business entities.

If you have already completed one of these transactions without the advice of a lawyer, we can review the relevant documents and advise you on whether any changes need to be made. We can also assist you with any other legal concerns you may have about your business.

Whether you need help starting a new business or restructuring your business after a merger or other transition, we encourage you to contact us to discuss your case with our legal team.
