Limited Liability Companies

Structure Law Group, LLP assists clients with all aspects of LLCs for both business and real estate holdings. SLG's attorneys have extensive experience in choosing the correct management structure for single member and multiple member LLCs, including member-managed and manager-managed formats as well as officer, committee and board of directors style LLC management structures. Our LLC formation services include the initial organization, related filings with the Secretary of State, Department of Corporations, Internal Revenue Service, Franchise Tax Board, Employment Development Department and other organizational requirements. Our LLC operating agreements can be simple or complex as necessary to take into account buy-sell provisions, management authority, tax allocations and planning for dissolution, sale and transfers. We also advise clients in the formation of single member bankruptcy remote entities as required by lenders.

When an LLC is no longer the proper form of entity for our clients, we assist in converting to a limited partnership or a corporation, as appropriate. We also assist with dissolution or sale of the LLC when the time is right. We work with our LLC clients to make sure all of their records are in order to maximize their value on a merger or acquisition. In addition, SLG's business attorneys assist with contract negotiations, hiring and firing employees, resolutions and consents, and other actions necessary to protect the company and maintain the LLC's liability shield. SLG's attorneys have personal experience in LLC membership and management and we pride ourselves on providing practical advice to our clients interested in forming or investing in LLCs.

Structure Law Group can assist with California LLCs, Delaware LLCs, and LLCs in other jurisdictions as appropriate.
