Creative And Strategic Legal Guidance

Helping You Make Your Business Dreams A Reality

When you are just getting started with your business, the decisions you make today can lay the foundation for your future success. Creating a solid legal structure for your business is not just about compliance; it’s about setting the stage for growth and resilience.

A Huck Bouma, we understand what needs to be done, and we are dedicated to guiding Chicago-area entrepreneurs and startups through the nuanced process of business entity planning and formation. We know how to clearly define your options and eliminate your stress.

How Do You Choose The Right Structure For Your Business?

Determining the right structure for your business is where our business formation attorneys show their strengths. We listen carefully to your goals and work to understand the nature of your operations so that we can guide you to the business structure that will benefit you the most.

The choice of business structure that’s right for you depends on factors like your desire for liability protection, your preferred management structure, the tax implications and your long-term goals. Some of the most common options include:

  • Partnership
  • Limited liability corporation (LLC)
  • Cooperative
  • S corporation
  • C corporation
  • Nonprofit

Once you have determined the best entity for your company, our business formation documents lawyer can work to ensure the legal setup process goes smoothly and that all documents and agreements are properly completed and filed with the appropriate agencies.

How Does Business Structure Affect Your Taxes And The Ability To Raise Capital?

All business structures can potentially secure debt financing, but lenders may have different preferences. Traditional lenders may be more familiar and comfortable lending to corporations, and venture capitalists tend to prefer investing in corporations due to the clear ownership structure and transferability of shares.

However, many entrepreneurs like LLCs for their ease of operations and the ability to structure them as pass-through taxation entities. There is no one right choice for every situation, which is why you need a business formation attorney’s guidance.
