Launching a new small business is an exciting endeavor. As you invest a substantial amount of your energy, time, and financial resources into your business, you naturally want to ensure that you are laying the strongest foundation possible to set yourself up for success. There are so many details to consider, ranging from the relatively minor (i.e., purchasing office supplies or practical items) to the more abstract (i.e., creating a mission or value statement). Enlisting the guidance of a dedicated and knowledgeable business law attorney can be a great way to ensure that you receive the support you need to make each decision with greater certainty and confidence. The trusted and friendly business law attorneys at Outhier & Caruthers PLLC are ready to help you articulate your business goals and develop a customized strategy to ensure that you achieve them.
Business Formation Basics in Oklahoma
At Outhier & Caruthers PLLC, we recognize that entity formation is the first step in developing and launching a successful business. Our goal is to provide you with the tools, information, and guidance you need to move forward with confidence. We understand that every business has its own unique considerations and challenges, which is why we offer fully customized business formation services to accommodate every client's specific needs. Choosing the right business entity can significantly improve the operation and profitability of your business while reducing tax obligations and minimizing personal liability. Whether you are interested in forming a limited liability company (LLC), sole proprietorship, or corporation, our dedicated business law attorneys are ready to help you explore your options to determine the structure that will best support your business goals.
Committed to Supporting Small Business Owners
Most smaller startups find success in choosing to structure their business as a limited liability company (LLC). An LLC offers the personal liability protection of a larger corporation while still enabling the owners to choose how to distribute their profits. Depending on your unique needs and goals, you may also explore the potential advantages and limitations of forming a sole proprietorship, partnership, or corporation. We will work with you to ensure that you understand the implications of each option, empowering you to make an informed decision with greater certainty and confidence. Once you have identified the best structure for your new business, our attorneys will guide you through the next steps of registering and launching your small business.
Providing Comprehensive and Ongoing Legal Support
Choosing a business structure is far from the only step you will need to take to set your business up for success. When you enlist our guidance, you can trust that we will help you navigate every step of the business formation process. Our comprehensive business formation services include: Helping you register with the Secretary of State; registering your business with all applicable federal, state, and local taxing authorities; drafting legal documents (i.e., operating agreements, buy-sell agreements, business contracts, etc.); and establishing operational guidelines. The strength and success of your business are our top priority---we will identify and implement all the necessary tools and protections to keep your business running smoothly. We also believe in taking a proactive approach to reduce the likelihood of future legal disputes. By creating clear and detailed contracts and planning for potential issues later on, your business will be in a solid position to handle any legal disputes that may arise. We enjoy cultivating meaningful relationships with every client we serve that extend far beyond the business formation phase. Whenever a legal question or issue crops up, you can turn to us to help you resolve it as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
