If you are looking to create a new business in California, you can take the first step by hiring our firm, signing an engagement letter, and providing the necessary legal fees. That is when you will decide, with our help, what kind of a company you want, whether it's a corporation or LLC, and in what state.
Once that is decided, we will file either articles of incorporation or articles of organization, depending on what type of entity structure you chose. Then there will be other miscellaneous documents, including:
These provide the backbone of the legal entity of your company and are essential to any business endeavor.
Having all the correct documents in place is obviously important, especially when it comes to reducing risks later down the line. Properly crafted agreements between shareholders or partners are vital to avoiding or easily resolving conflicts later.
Properly forming and executing these documents is the groundwork for all the planning and management strategies upon which the success of your company will depend. And if anyone attacks or sues your enterprise, you will have the essential protections in place.
At its heart, in many ways, a company is built on contracts. First, the company is formally incorporated by registering it with the appropriate secretary of state, as well as with informational filings in any other states. Then, you need the federal employer identification number and any other supporting shareholder agreements to start a business.
After that, contracts govern everything from internal structures to external interactions, employee behavior and management, and corporate obligations and objectives. It is always best to have an experienced California business law attorney to help draft all of these when starting a business here or expanding into the state. After all, every state has different laws, all of which need to be taken into account when writing up statutes, documents, and contracts.
