Our Experience Matters

Business Formation Lawyers To Prepare You For Success

Opening a new business is an exciting venture. Taking an existing business to a new level is a major step in the growth of the company. We help companies of all sizes prepare for success. We do not take a one-size-fits-all stance in advising clients in business planning and formation matters. A business owner who plans to start a business to develop the company for sale in a short period of time differs greatly from an owner who wants to stay in business for a lifetime.Our business formation lawyers are highly skilled in guiding business owners through every step of creating a new company in Indiana. Because our law firm has experience in many areas of law, we are well-equipped to help your company succeed. We take the time to understand your goals to craft the legal strategy best suited to your individual needs, including:

  • Shielding owners from business debt: We help new business owners to address all facets of the business in order to protect assets of the business and shield owners, partners, members, officers or shareholders from personal liability for the debts of the business.
  • Managing risk: Our extensive experience in business and commercial litigation informs our legal counsel concerning risk management, corporate governance and business succession plans to reduce the risk of future disputes that can adversely impact profits.
  • Addressing tax implications: We are prudent in taking into consideration every relevant detail in advising clients on how the tax implications of each business form differs, with particular respect to the individual nature of the proposed new entity. Our knowledge of tax law supplements our skill set in advising individuals and entrepreneurs in choosing the business entity best suited for the goals and operational vision of the new organization.
  • Incorporating a family farm: Our tax law and estate planning experience is highly beneficial for owners of family farms who are seeking to incorporate the farm or place it in an LLC to protect the family and facilitate the future transfer of the farm among members of the family.

Businesses throughout Indiana have relied on our strategic solutions and diligent, responsive representation to make informed decisions to protect assets and prepare their companies for success.
