Business Formation in Seattle, WA

One of the first and most important decisions you make when starting a new business is determining the type of business entity your venture will take. At the Law Offices of James W. Talbot, PLLC, in Seattle, Washington, we walk our clients through the pros and cons of forming a corporation or limited liability company, and help you choose which entity is best for your needs.

Many entrepreneurs want to give their employees an opportunity to own shares of the company. We can create the necessary documents and walk you through this process.

Business formation can impact your personal and professional liability, tax consequences and profit margin. It is critical to have the advice of a seasoned business lawyer who will protect your interests. We help entrepreneurs create all types of business entities, including:

  • Sole proprietorships
  • S corporations
  • C corporations
  • Partnerships
  • Limited liability companies (LLC)
  • Limited liability partnerships
  • Nonprofit corporations

Attorney Talbot understands the benefits of each and how to determine the right entity for your business plan. We begin by taking the time to understand your business goals and concerns. After reviewing your options and helping you select the business entity that best suits your business model, we will draft and file all appropriate documents.

We hope to continue serving as your general business counsel throughout the life of your company. As we gain a more complete sense of your business plan and understand your goals, our firm will be a proactive partner, handling issues before they become problems.
We can draft or review business contracts and tackle business disputes through commercial litigation or, preferably, by using creative conflict resolution strategies that help you avoid prolonged litigation.

Starting a business is exciting. The level of service provided by our accomplished business law attorney will leave you feeling like you have your own in-house counsel.
