Business Entity FormationHaving a business idea and actually forming a real business are two very different things. While the former is a creative process that can be undertaken on your own, the latter is a legal and financial matter that requires the services of a professional business attorney.
What Is Required for Official Business Entity Formation?While it may be romantic to think about building your own business out of your basement, in reality, the process of business entity formation is much more practical. Much of it happens on paper, and there are numerous legal terms and concepts that must be incorporated. Fortunately, you can leave this aspect of your business to the us. An experienced business lawyer can help you make smart choices regarding your future business and draw up the necessary business entity formation documents for your start-up.
Types of Business EntitiesNot all businesses are alike. When starting your business, it’s important to consider the various types of business entities and decide which is best for you and your company. The different types of business entities are associated with different laws and regulations as well as privileges and obligations, so it’s best to consult with an experienced business attorney before making your selection. Otherwise, you may encounter issues and problems that could have been avoided had you met with a lawyer. Below, you will find some examples of business entities:
- Sole Proprietorships
- Limited Liability Companies (LLCs)
- Partnerships (General and Limited)
- Sub-Chapter Corporations
When you sit down with a business lawyer, he or she can explain the requirements as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each type of business entity.

I found Stephen Ensberg office on yelp when searching for a lawyer who specialized in business. He helped me to interpret a buyout offer for my shares of a business. I thought I was pretty smart as a business professional and had seen plenty of legal paperwork in my line of business but this particular agreement seemed like it was written in a different language. Mr. Ensberg was able to explain it to me in words I could understand and he also found it to be very one sided and not in my best interest to sign. He wrote me a letter to present to my business partners and we are currently working on a new agreement. Without his recommendation I could have gotten myself into problems down the line. He answered all of my questions personally via email and over the phone which I really appreciated. I hope to not need his services in the future but if I do I'll be heading straight to his office!
