Business Transactions

When it comes to business planning, you need to make sure your future is protected. Lawrence D. "Larry" Rouse offers legal assistance in a variety of business planning areas in order to help you overcome today's challenges while meeting your future goals.

The first step in business planning is to decide what type of entity you will operate under. By creating a business entity, you give yourself protection. The entity you choose should be easy to understand and use. It should act as a shield to protect you from liability so that only the entity's assets can be reached in the event of a lawsuit. Larry will help you consider all of your options for business entity formation, including:

  • Choosing the Best Entity
  • Operating Agreements (buy/sell)
  • Contracts and Leases
  • Non-Profit (Charitable Entities)

Once you have chosen your business entity, you should carefully maintain it and operate it to protect your interests in all business transactions. Larry will be there to assist with state filing requirements and protect your interests by helping you enter into business agreements. With advanced planning, many pitfalls and potential liabilities can be avoided.

Larry will also help you prepare for the future by looking at asset protection options and help you consider business succession planning. The sooner you start preparing for the future, the more you can do to protect your business and your family.

Taxation is one of the most important issues facing your business. Larry will help you select a tax efficient entity that will minimize your tax consequences now and in the future. From entity formation to business succession planning, Larry will help you understand the tax consequences of your transactions and deal with them appropriately.
