The Very Basics – Forming the Business

So, you are an entrepreneur and want to start your own business (or you are an attorney, accountant, or other professional advisor working with one). One of the first decisions required is to choose a legal structure for the business. What factors should be taken into consideration prior to selecting a legal structure? Does a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company or corporation (C- or S-corp) make the most sense? This webinar focuses on business formation and the pros and cons to the different legal structures, and includes tips on how to keep one’s personal assets safe from the claims of future creditors of the business.
