CHOICE OF BUSINESS FORM

Clients are assisted in selecting and organizing the type of U.S. and non-U.S. business entity appropriate for their needs (e.g. corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, etc.). In the case of foreign-owned businesses, the possibilities are discussed with clients and their foreign advisors from the standpoint of liability, management, transferability of interests and taxation, etc. In doing so, the firm reviews a client’s worldwide legal structure in order to achieve a U.S. structure which is consistent with business and tax objectives.
