For Profit Company Formations

We have vast experience in a wide arena of businesses, including hospitality, light and heavy manufacturing, oilfield services, real estate projects, and service industries such as engineering firms, CPA firms, recruiting firms, and marketing firms. We do not utilize generalized templates but structure each entity based on both our experience and what is best suited for the client and their business goals. This is done by and through the company’s operating agreement or, if the circumstances warrant, a shareholder’s agreement or other ancillary document. We strive to structure the agreements to accurately and clearly reflects the parties’ underlying agreements while providing our clients with as much protection and shifting of risk and potential liabilities as can be afforded under the law.
