Nearly a Century of Combined Legal Experience
Some of the main concerns of a business owner is whether or not their own
private finances could be affected by problems within the company, or
without. If a member of the general public decides to bring a lawsuit
against your business, you, as the controller of it, might be personally
held accountable for any damages or compensation amounts paid out. To
avoid this awkward and frustration consequence, you should consider that
forming a limited liability company (LLC) might be the right choice for you.
At Buckley Beal LLP, our Atlanta
business litigation attorneys take pride in being able to take business owners and their businesses
to new and exciting stages without getting them tied up in confusing litigation
and regulations. With both of our founding attorneys being AV® Preeminent™
Rated by Martindale-Hubbell®, people all across Georgia have come
to recognize our skill and our dedication to our clients. If forming an
LLC is the next step for you, we genuinely want to be the business lawyers
who get you there. If LLC formation is not the right option, determined after an
initial consultation, we can try to point you in the right direction.
LLC Basics and Guidelines
What in business law and corporate dealings does not seem like a complicated
mess at first glance? LLC formation really is not that different in the
way that those who have not familiarized themselves with the procedure
can find it daunting or, at the least, time-consuming. When you let us
handle matters for you, everything will be so much clearer.
For the most part, you will be concerned with five phases of LLC formation:
Choosing a name: The name of your business is often the face of your business. We can help
you find a name that is not taken already in the registry and that fits
the goal you had in mind.
Filing the paperwork: Documentation for LLC formation can quickly pile up; details can get mixed
up and overlooked, which could spell disaster for the whole process. Let
us handle all the
contracts and paperwork so nothing is missing or mistakenly created.
Making operations: Within your LLC formation, you will want to set guidelines for how the
business will be operated – this is called an operating agreement.
Letting others know: Depending on your business, and sometimes your county, you may have to
publically publish the announcement of your LLC’s formation. If
you do, you may as well take this time to spin it towards advertising!
Obtaining the license: All of this will be for naught if you do not actually obtain your license
once it is approved. The circumstances of your business may require you
to publically display this license, such as sticking a food service related
license in the storefront window.
Atlanta Business Lawyers By Your Side, Whenever You Need Us
LLC formation, when done correctly, can advance and empower your business
and set a great pace for your future. Nothing will progress, however,
if you get caught up in the process due to legal intricacies. We understand
that stepping into this procedure alone can feel less-than-inviting. By
sticking with you from start to finish, we hope to guide you to a more
comfortable place at your own pace.
