Business Formation and Dissolution

Business Formation

Business formation is the process of creating a business entity in order to conduct business activities. This includes selecting the type of entity and drafting the necessary legal documents. Business entities are typically formed for companies, partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), or sole proprietorships. Each type of entity has its own set of rules and regulations that must be followed in order to remain in compliance with local and federal laws.

The process of business formation begins with selecting the type of entity that best suits your needs. Each type of entity has its own advantages and disadvantages, such as limited liability protection or tax benefits. Additionally, certain entities may be more suitable based on the number of owners, capital requirements, and other factors. Once you have selected the type of entity, it is important to draft and file the necessary legal documents with your state's Secretary of State office in order to gain official recognition as a business entity.

At Dooley Gembala, our attorneys can assist you in choosing the most appropriate entity for your business and drafting the necessary legal documents to form it. We understand that each situation is unique, and we will take the time to listen to your needs so that we can create a tailored solution that meets those needs.

Business Dissolution

Business dissolution is the process of officially winding down a business entity due to retirement, bankruptcy, or other reasons. It involves ceasing business operations, transferring assets to creditors and other stakeholders, and officially dissolving the entity. Depending on the type of entity that was formed, different steps may need to be taken in order to dissolve it properly.

At Dooley Gembala, we know that winding down a business can be a difficult process. Our attorneys can guide you through the dissolution process, ensuring that all of your obligations are met and that your business is dissolved in accordance with state laws. We will take the time to understand your unique situation and develop a plan to ensure that the dissolution goes smoothly.
