Corporate Formation and Governance

Fortson, Bentley and Griffin’s experienced corporate attorneys advise clients on a wide range of matters relating to corporate formation and corporate governance.

The choice of legal entity (i.e., corporation vs. LLC vs. partnership) is a critical decision faced by clients when starting a business, and our clients routinely seek the trusted counsel of our firm’s corporate attorneys when facing this important decision. FB&G’s corporate attorneys have extensive experience in all matters relating to choice of legal entity and the tax, management, funding, liability, and other legal impacts that the choice of legal entity will have on our clients. Typically, our firm’s corporate attorneys coordinate with both our firm’s tax attorneys and our client’s accountant to ensure that the client’s choice of legal entity is optimal from both a legal and a business perspective. Our corporate attorneys have the experience necessary to ensure that your business gets it right from the very beginning.

FB&G’s corporate attorneys understand the importance of properly forming and organizing legal entities and make every effort to do so on behalf of our firm’s clients in an efficient, effective manner. In many cases, the proper organization of a legal entity entails working closely with our firm’s clients to prepare and negotiate shareholders’ agreements for corporations and operating agreements for limited liability companies. Regardless of our client’s choice of legal entity, FB&G’s corporate attorneys have the experience and expertise required for the task.

With respect to our client’s existing business entities, FB&G’s corporate attorneys counsel our firm’s clients on a wide range of corporate governance matters, including, but not limited to, maintenance of corporate records and share ledgers, preparation of annual meeting minutes and consents, nomination and removal of officers and directors, and advising directors and officers with respect to fiduciary duty matters.
