Staten Island Business Attorney Advises on Entity Formation

Getting commercial ventures in NY and NJ started on the right footing

Many entrepreneurs think they’ll get their businesses started, and then, once they get rolling, they’ll take steps to incorporate. Others get papers of incorporation online at a do-it-yourself website that gives no specific guidance about the best entity to form. Both of these approaches can have negative consequences for the business, especially for taxation, liability and operations. That’s why, since 1996, William J. Newstad, Esq., Attorney and Counselor at Law has made every effort to educate entrepreneurs on the advantages of different forms of incorporation. We know that businesses succeed only when proprietors make informed decisions. Our extensive, face-to-face consultations deliver value for our clients by helping them avoid initial missteps that can be costly to correct. To get your business started on the right foot, get the detailed information you need about these legal business entities:

  • Limited liability company
  • S-corps
  • Limited partnerships
  • Limited liability partnerships
  • Professional corporations
  • Sole proprietorships
  • Doing business as, or DBA

Personalized business formation services identify your specific needs

To be effective, a business formation attorney must be personally committed to your success. At William J. Newstad, Esq., Attorney and Counselor at Law, we demonstrate our commitment by taking the time to learn about your business goals and objectives so we can give you the most appropriate guidance. Your choice of entity will depend on several different factors, including:

  • The nature of your business
  • The tax implications of doing business
  • The preferred management structure
  • The preferred relationships of the partners
  • Risk of liability while operating your business

Failure to properly form your business can lead to:

  • Higher taxation
  • Exposure of personal assets to liability lawsuits
  • Confusion in your management structure and operations

Our goals are to alert you to potential impediments to your business and advise you on the advantages of employing proven principles about risk management, tax planning, dispute resolution and other aspects of a successful business venture. We also help in drafting all essential paperwork and agreements among your stakeholders.
