Business Formation for LLCs and Limited Liability Partnerships
Limited liability companies (LLCs) and limited liability partnerships (LLPs) are business entities that have become increasingly popular among new business owners and offer several unique benefits for many companies. The formation of an LLC or LLP, like any business entity, requires thorough planning for many legal and financial issues, including plans for the succession or dissolution of the business.

Benefits of LLCs and LLPs
LLCs and LLPs each offer their own benefits in comparison to corporations, partnerships and sole proprietorships.
A limited liability company combines certain characteristics of a corporation and a partnership. Like a corporation, its members receive ownership interests in exchange for property, money or services. Also like a corporation, an LLC limits the liability of its members by forming as a separate business entity. LLCs, however, have many of the tax benefits of a partnership. LLCs also do not have many of the requirements that corporations have, such as annual meeting, shareholder requirements or the election of a boards of directors.
An LLP is like a general partnership with some personal liability protection for each of the partners. Additionally, greater flexibility is allowed in splitting profits and losses and the management structure is much simpler than that of a corporation.
At Farrell & Martin, we will analyze your situation and your business goals to determine what business entity is right for your situation. We can help you draft Articles of Organization, buy/sell agreements, operating agreements, membership agreements, employment contracts and other necessary documents for your business. When necessary, we can also handle business acquisitions and business dissolution or liquidation matters.
