Miller & Law, P.C. represents businesses of all sizes in a wide range of corporate transactions, including assisting with entity formation, complex corporate structuring, succession planning, and drafting a variety of buy-sell agreements in the Denver area and throughout Colorado. In addition, several of our attorneys are licensed in other states, assist out-of-state businesses on a pro hac vice basis, or represent corporations with interests in foreign countries.
When starting a new business, one of the most important decisions to make is what type of business entity to form. Different types of business or corporate structures can have significant tax and legal liability implications as well as state and federal obligations. In Colorado, possible business structures include:
- Limited Partnerships
- Limited Liability Companies (LLCs)
- Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) or Limited Liability Limited Partnerships (LLLPs)
- Limited Partnership Associations
Our attorneys advise clients on the best choice of entity for their specific needs and assist in the process of formation, including filing any necessary documents with the Colorado Secretary of State. We assist clients with preparing documents such as articles of incorporation, stock certificates, bylaws, operating agreements, and buy-sell agreements.
Complex Corporate Structures
In addition to providing basic entity formation services, the seasoned corporate law attorneys at Miller & Law, P.C. assist in forming complex corporate structures to protect a business' assets. We establish operating entities which conduct all of a business's operations but do not own any of its assets, and a separate holding company which controls a business' assets but does not conduct any business transactions. By correctly structuring multi-tiered corporate entities of this type, our attorneys can help businesses protect their assets while limiting operational risks.
The retirement, departure, bankruptcy, or death of an important corporate officer, such as a partner or CEO, can hinder the growth a business. By planning ahead for these contingencies, a business can limit the disruption of normal operations and ensure a smooth transition. Miller & Law, P.C. assists businesses and corporations in planning a profitable transition by addressing potential officer exit strategies; restructuring corporate entities; assisting with mergers, acquisitions, or the disposition of assets; advising on tax consequences; and helping to shift corporate responsibilities and preserve goodwill. In addition, we have negotiated, reviewed, and drafted a wide variety of buy-sell agreements for business owners, in which we carefully detail when an owner can sell his or her interest, who can purchase the interest, what must be paid for the interest, and the procedures for business succession.
