Business Formation & Incorporation

How your Massachusetts business is structured is important because it will have a significant impact on the business' tax liability, its ability to attract investors and the personal liability of the owners should the business ever be sued. At Grantham Law, our startup business lawyers work closely with owners and entrepreneurs and assist them with selecting the proper legal structure that will meet their immediate and future business needs. Moreover, rather than using some standard template that you buy online, we take the time to learn about your business and your goals and use that information to prepare documents are drafted specifically for your business.

Selecting the Best Structure for Your Business

An improperly structured business can result in higher taxes; or worse, subject you to personal liability. As a business owner, you should be concentrating on building your business and making money, not worrying about the legal aspects of properly forming your business. Contact us today to speak with an experienced business attorney.

No "cookie cutter" Business Forms.

After a short interview, one of our business attorneys will advise you of the best business structure for your business. Unlike a "do-it-yourself" kit that can't offer legal advice, we do more than give you a "one-size-fits-all" template; we will listen to your needs, then prepare unique business organization documents that are properly drafted, executed and explained to you.

A Limited Liability Company is a formal business structure that offers owner(s) with liability protection while allowing the business to be treated as a proprietorship or partnership for tax purposes. We can prepare legal documents to ensure maximum flexibility and protection to owners. We offer several Massachusetts LLC packages to meet your business' needs.

A properly established corporation can protect shareholders from personal liability should the corporation be sued. Our business attorneys can prepare corporate legal documents to protect shareholders from creditors while allowing for potential growth. We offer several Massachusetts incorporation packages that are designed to meet your business' needs.

Limited partnerships (LPs) and limited liability partnerships (LLPs) are both businesses with more than one owner, but unlike general partnerships, limited partnerships and limited liability partnerships offer some of their owners limited personal liability for business debts. We offer several partnership packages to fit your business needs and budget.

A Non-Profit is a charitable organization with a specific social goal that uses its revenues and surplus to fund its operations rather than benefitting the organizations’ members, shareholders, employees or leaders. The profits are channeled further to its goals. Nonprofits receive donations from the government, foundations, institutions, and individuals, just to name a few. These funds are then directed to the set charitable work. They can operate in research, religious, education or even scientific settings, and are tax exempt.
