Business Formation

Laying The Foundation For A Successful Business

You have a great concept for a business. Now you simply need to move from concept to reality and form the business. This is a critical step. If done correctly, you are laying the foundation for your business's success. If not done correctly, you could find your business struggling unnecessarily and susceptible to threats that may have otherwise been avoided.

Entity Selection Is Just One Part Of Forming A Business

When people think of business formation, they often think of entity selection. This is indeed an important part of the process of starting a business. There are a variety of options available, and each one has unique strengths and weaknesses that need to be weighed while considering the nature of the business and the industry. Possible business entities include:

  • Limited liability companies (LLC)
  • Partnerships
  • Corporations (S corps and C corps)
  • Sole proprietorships

At Heekin Law, P.A. in Jacksonville, we will review your business concept, learn about your goals and help you determine the entity type most appropriate for your enterprise. While this is certainly an important part of the formation process, we will not stop there.
