Creating California Corporations, LLCs, and Partnerships

At the Law Offices of Andersson & Andersson in Walnut Creek, California, our attorneys assist clients in the formation of new business entities, including the preparation of partnership agreements, buy-sell agreements and other organization documents.

The most advantageous way of organizing your business depends upon your specific facts and circumstances and requires consideration of your business assets, your potential liability, your tax situation, and your goals for the business. One size does not fit all when it comes to business formation, and our lawyers will help you explore all of the options available to you, including:

  • Chapter C corporation
  • Chapter S corporation
  • Limited liability company (LLC)
  • Partnerships
  • Joint ventures
  • Family limited partnerships
  • Tenancies in common

Increasingly, California entrepreneurs create single-purpose limited liability companies to protect one business venture from the liability of another. For example, if you own four commercial properties, your bank may want you to form a separate LLC for each business. By doing so, debt from one property won't impart liability to the other property.

Beyond business formation, our attorneys draft and review business contracts, provide tax planning and preparation services, and assist with business succession planning. Senior partner and firm founder Patricia Andersson has more than 35 years of legal and accounting experience, including four years in the tax department of a national accounting firm.
