After selecting the proper structure, we can further assist in the formation of your entity by preparing and filing the necessary documents with the Secretary of State Division of Corporations, including certificates of incorporation and articles of organization. We are also experienced in drafting and negotiating the relevant governing documents, including corporate bylaws and shareholder agreements and LLC operating agreements. These documents are essential in affording your business certain protections that businesses cannot gain if they are not registered. Businesses that are not registered with the Division of Corporations are not afforded the protections to which they are otherwise entitled by law. For example, such businesses are not permitted to either file or defend themselves from lawsuits in their capacity as a legally recognized entity.
