You likely are well aware of the complexities and pitfalls involved in the legal side of being a business owner.Meet Your Attorneys
The United States government does not require that LLCs or Corporations are set up by citizens. S Corporations, however, do require that the person setting up the business be a legal resident.
Our business formation attorneys can assist you in filing the correct documents and choosing the right entity if you are not a legal resident or citizen of the United States.
A Limited Liability Company (LLC) protects you from personal liability. It means you literally have “limited liability” as an individual and that lawsuits will be directed at the business and not you individually.
It’s also ideal for single-owner businesses, as it is effectively considered a partnership in terms of tax. It is a flow-through entity where members directly report their income, expenses, deductions, and potential losses. It effectively allows people to operate as a sole proprietor if they so wish, but without the liability that comes with that kind of set-up.
Furthermore, an LLC does not have the same limitations as an S Corporation, meaning that members can make special allocations of income and losses.
Hiring a lawyer to start your LLC or corporation is always a wise idea. Not only will you avoid filing complex paperwork ranging from the articles or organization to various state regulatory requirements, you can rest assured that everything is filed correctly.
Attorneys will walk you through the formation process or simply handle everything and show you where to sign. It’s the easiest and most responsible way to officially register a business operation in your state.
Entrusting the formation of your business with legal professionals is an important long-term investment. The cost depends on the kind of business you intend to run. For a simple LLC application, the costs of forming your business may be hundreds of dollars, but prices may rise to tens of thousands of dollars for the forming of more complex businesses with multiple investors and parties involved.
At Sequoia Legal, we aim to keep costs manageable and competitive, allowing you to get your business running quickly.
Sequoia Legal found subtle legal loopholes in some of our confidentiality agreements that could have spelled disaster for our small business. Fortunately, with the help of Sequoia Legal, we were able to get these leaks plugged before they did any serious damage to our company.
Our company operates in a highly regulated industry. Sequoia Legal has been our go-to law firm for years now. I am happy to say that we have never suffered a serious regulatory noncompliance problem, and Sequoia Legal has quickly resolved the few minor problems that did arise.
Our company’s trade secret protection system was a ticking time bomb waiting to explode. Sequoia helped us revamp the system so that it complies with both state and federal law. I cannot recommend their services highly enough.
We ran into a hit on the SDN list. It turned out to be a case of mistaken identity, and Sequoia Legal helped us resolve the issue in a quick and cost-efficient manner. Very professional and knowledgeable.
A couple of years ago, our company had no compliance program to speak of, and we were barely aware of the existence of OFAC regulations. Sequoia Legal helped us get our house in order, and we have had no problems since then.
We contacted Sequoia Law after an internal audit revealed that our company had inadvertently committed two substantial OFAC violations over the past two years. We chose the path of voluntary disclosure to OFAC and received lenient penalties. Many thanks to Sequoia for their adroit handling of the matter.
We are an out-of-state company that hired Sequoia Legal to crack down on some Colorado companies that were blatantly infringing our trademarks and software copyrights. Sequoia Legal shut them down in a matter of weeks and secured generous compensation for our damages.`Sequoia Legal epitomizes professionalism.
Our previous attorney had drafted us NDAs that were so full of holes that it left unscrupulous former employees almost complete freedom to deal with our trade secrets as they wished. Sequoia Legal helped us plug those loopholes and prevent further leakage of valuable trade secrets. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
We hired Sequoia Legal to help us organize and protect our intellectual property needs. They identified problems we didn’t even know we had, and they helped us head off serious oversights that might have bankrupted our company if we hadn’t caught them in time.
Sequoia Legal has been helping us with regulatory compliance matters for years now. So far, we have not had a single complaint lodged against us by any patient or entity, and no enforcement actions have been implemented or threatened. I can’t praise them enough.
With years of experience and a commitment to helping the entrepreneurs of Denver, Sequoia Legal brings Big Law experience to small and medium-sized operations.
