Business Start-Up Attorney in Sacramento, CA:

Entity Formation, LLC Filing, S Corporation Filing, C Corporation Filing

Initiating a new business venture can be as exhilarating as it is daunting, given the multitude of legal requirements and decisions that need careful consideration. At Nickens & Nazaryan, Inc. in Sacramento, CA, our attorneys are well-versed in guiding budding entrepreneurs and businesses through the process of starting up, ensuring a solid foundation for their enterprise. Armed with substantial knowledge of business law, we are committed to helping clients make informed decisions that align with their business objectives and foster future growth.

Why Nickens & Nazaryan, Inc.

Entity formation is among the key services we provide to start-ups. The type of business entity chosen can significantly impact various aspects of the enterprise, such as ownership structure, taxation, and personal liability. The attorneys at Nickens & Nazaryan, Inc., are adept at advising clients on the various types of business entities, including Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), S Corporations, and C Corporations, among others.

LLCs are popular among start-ups due to the flexibility they offer in terms of management structure and profit distribution. They also provide owners with personal liability protection, which means personal assets are typically shielded from business debts and liabilities. Our attorneys can assist clients in understanding the intricacies of forming an LLC and guide them through the process of filing the requisite documents with the California Secretary of State.

S Corporations and C Corporations are other options for start-ups, each with unique advantages and potential drawbacks. S Corporations allow for the income, deductions, and credits of the corporation to flow through to shareholders for federal tax purposes, avoiding the double taxation faced by C Corporations. However, they come with more stringent eligibility requirements. On the other hand, C Corporations, while subject to double taxation, offer benefits such as greater potential for growth and ease of transfer of ownership. Our attorneys can provide clients with a detailed understanding of these options, enabling them to choose the entity type that best suits their business model and objectives.

Beyond assisting with entity selection and formation, our attorneys also provide counsel on a broad spectrum of start-up concerns, such as compliance with state and federal regulations, drafting and reviewing of contracts, and setting up robust corporate governance structures. We also offer guidance on business licensing, permits, and other regulatory requirements pertinent to the industry and jurisdiction in which the start-up operates.
