Why You Need A Lawyer To Start Your Business

The last thing you need when you’re busy starting a new business is dealing with piles of paperwork – but unfortunately, that’s typically what happens. It’s one of the main reasons why entrepreneurs turn to a lawyer for company registration. It’s a way of ensuring not only that your business is fully compliant with Colorado and federal regulations, but it also frees up your time, allowing you to focus on establishing your business operations.

As an entrepreneur in Colorado, it is not only required to follow strict guidelines for registration, but there are also various legal protections your business will need to plan for the future. Sequoia Legal is fluent in state and federal regulations and works with you to provide continued support from formation and beyond.

FAQs

Can I Setup LLC Or Corporation If I’m Not A US Citizen?

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.

What Are The Advantages Of Limited Liability Companies

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.

Should I Hire a Lawyer To Start an LLC Or Corporation?

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.

What Are Legal Costs To Form A New Business?

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.
