Business Formation From The Ground Up

Success in business begins at the beginning, by choosing the format that works best for your business. At Gottschlich & Portune, LLP, we assist startups and other businesses in their early stages in choosing the entity type with the strengths and flexibility necessary for success. We also draft operating agreements to avoid future misunderstandings.

Forming An LLC, LLP Or S Corporation

Different forms allow a different approach to taxes, recordkeeping and legal liability. We work with you to identify these differences, and which entity form is most advantageous to you. We the file the necessary paperwork defining your business parameters, which include:

  • Corporations
  • S corporations
  • Limited liability companies (LLCs)
  • Partnerships
  • Limited liability partnerships (LLPs)

Our lawyers are also skilled in setting up Ohio nonprofit organizations. We can assist in the challenge of registering as a 501c3 organization.

Starting up, and complying with state and federal regulations, involves more than choosing a business format. Our lawyers consult on the major legal issues requiring your attention:

  • Insurance
  • Investors
  • Corporate compliance
  • Contracts and other transactional documentation

We relate well to business clients ourselves. We too must deal with return on investment, employment issues and marketing communications. Our lawyers are familiar with nearly every industry and profession in the Dayton area. We have helped launch hundreds of businesses over the years. We can help your business, too.
