Starting a new business is an exciting and pivotal moment for any entrepreneur. At Bougard Law Firm, we understand that the success of your venture hinges on a solid foundation. Our experienced team of business attorneys is here to guide you through the process of business formation, ensuring that you make informed decisions and set your business on the path to prosperity.
Business formation is the process of legally structuring your company. Choosing the right business entity and adhering to the appropriate legal requirements can have a profound impact on your business’s operations, taxes, liability, and potential for growth. Our goal is to help you make strategic choices that align with your objectives and protect your interests.

Incorporation, formation, and organization
Selecting the Right Business Entity
Choosing the most suitable business entity is a critical decision that impacts various aspects of your business. Our attorneys will explain the different entity types, such as:
Sole Proprietorship: The simplest form of business ownership, where the business is owned and operated by one individual. It offers full control but also exposes the owner to personal liability.
Partnership: A business structure owned and managed by two or more individuals. Partnerships can be general partnerships (with shared liability) or limited partnerships (with limited liability for some partners).
Limited Liability Company (LLC): An LLC provides limited liability protection to its owners (members) while offering flexibility in management and taxation.
Corporation: A separate legal entity from its owners, offering limited liability protection to shareholders and different taxation options (C corporations and S corporations).
Nonprofit Organization: For those seeking to create a business with a charitable or social mission, we can assist in establishing a nonprofit organization.
Legal Compliance and Documentation: Our team will ensure that all legal requirements and documentation for business formation are accurately prepared and filed. This includes registering your business name, obtaining necessary permits and licenses, and complying with state and federal regulations.
Tailored Solutions for Your Business: Every business is unique, and we believe in providing personalized solutions that cater to your specific needs and aspirations. Whether you’re a startup, small business, or a growing enterprise, our attorneys will work closely with you to tailor your business formation to your advantage.
