Aurora Business Lawyers

Our Aurora business law attorneys work closely with entrepreneurs to guide them toward the proper choice of entity. Depending on the type of company, the numbers of owners and managers, your liabilities and the goals for your company, we can advise you on the formation of entity such as:

  • Not for profit corporation: Nonprofit corporations do not have shareholders. No one owns a nonprofit, and the law prohibits distributions of the nonprofit corporation's assets or income to individuals.
  • Professional corporation (P.C.): A professional corporation is organized to carry out one or more professional services. The shareholders must be licensed or authorized to practice a certain profession. Examples include accountants, architects, engineers, attorneys, dentists, physicians, veterinarians, real estate agents and registered nurses.
  • Limited liability corporation (LLC): A limited liability corporation operates much like a partnership but with some of the advantages of a corporation. A formal, written document called "Articles of Organization" must be prepared and submitted to the secretary of state for approval. The owners, called members, manage the limited liability corporation unless the members provide in the Articles of Organization for centralized management by a manager. Generally, an owner has limited liability that is his responsibility is limited to only the funds that he has invested in the organization.

These are just a few examples of the types of businesses that our law firm can help you form.

We handle the articles of incorporation, employment contracts, shareholder agreements and all other documents and contracts.
