Business Entity Formation

Massachusetts Corporation & LLC Attorney

As a small business, we understand the desire to be your own boss and pursue your dreams. We also understand the confusion and frustration that can accompany the pursuit of that goal – tax implications, liability, legal filings and documentation. In Massachusetts there are several major types of business entities that can be formed, each having its own legal and tax obligations. Our attorneys are experienced in helping you select the appropriate business entity for your needs and goals, whether it be a S corporation, C corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or sole proprietorship.

The business entity formation process is the first and often most important step in establishing a foundation for this investment. Why leave the formation of your business entity to a faceless company on the other side of the country? In most cases, online services do not employ attorneys to advise and form the business entity. Our business attorneys are local, here in Massachusetts. Your Lawyer will not only provide you with business entity formation services, but will be available to answer your questions and advise you on which type of entity best suits your needs.

At Nobles & Sigman, our business entity formation attorneys assist small business clients in establishing the proper legal foundation so that they can focus on their business, not the paperwork. Our small business start-up services include:

• Meeting to discuss your business goals;
• Helping you select the appropriate business entity form;
• Filing the necessary documentation;
• Advising you on how to protect your business in the event that something happens to you;
• Working with your CPA to assure that you are able to meet your taxation goals; and,
• Assisting with the initial legal record keeping.

We make every effort to keep the legal end of starting your business in Massachusetts as simple as possible, by minimizing the “legal-ese” and making sure we get a complete picture of your goals and ideas before any work begins.

Record Keeping and Maintenance

It is our goal to develop a long-term relationship with our clients to provide support and answers to their legal questions as they grow their businesses. Most business entities have ongoing obligations such as annual meetings and annual report filings. Failure to properly comply with these ongoing obligations can cause a business owner to lose the liability protection that the business entity affords. Nobles & Sigman provides cost-effecting representation to guide a business owner through the business entity governance process.
