Business Formation Services

For establishing a new business, it is important to start off with a plan and strategy in mind. The choice of legal structure for your new business is dependent on a number of factors and your choice will have a number of different consequences that may affect your operation for years to come. Although the cost of “do-it-yourself” business entity formation is initially low, in the long run you will save substantial time, money and problems using a business law attorney in East Bay. I offer business formation services, including filings for corporations, limited liability companies, limited and general partnerships and joint ventures,  at very competitive rates and unlike online “do-it-yourself” services, I will:
