Business formation & corporate governance legal services

Establishing a new business requires a deliberate approach with respect to the applicable rules of organization. There are a number of ways to structure your company, including a limited liability corporation (LLC), partnership, or a corporation (S-Corp or C-Corp). Each entity involves different legal parameters and tax implications that will play a role in the future of your business.

As an experienced attorney for business formation and corporate governance, Shawn Leo can help determine the right structure and memorialize the terms of the relevant bylaws, operating agreements, or partnership agreements. He will also work beside you through other areas of consideration when forming a new business, such as compliance issues, trademarks, and tax laws. Putting time and thought into the legal formation of your business lays the groundwork for success.

Shawn clearly communicated the process and answered all of my questions, all while I was not even in San Diego County. He provided timely updates and was clear on what to expect in the Probate process.
