The Law Offices of Paul F. Murphy
Business Formation & Litigation Support
Businesses must develop a business plan that includes how to be organized under the laws of Massachusetts.
Sole proprietors, partnerships, corporations, professional corporations, limited liability corporations and partnerships are all recognized designations in Massachusetts.
In order to make the appropriate selection the attorney and client need to review how the business will raise capital, issue debt, grow and address issues of liability.
The tax treatment and cost of annual filings will also require reviews with accountants.
I can assist small business start-ups in selecting the appropriate formation, undertake the state filings and advise parties how to transfer and sell businesses within their respective structure.
Unfortunately, part of doing business requires initiating and defending lawsuits to protect your business interests and my office has significant experience in representing businesses in all aspects of litigation and can assist you in avoiding the need for litigation in many circumstances.
