Corporate Attorney

Formation | Compliance | Consultation

Corporations provide an excellent advantage with many benefits. However, if your corporation is not in compliance with the law, you may face consequences that outweigh those benefits. – Roger Doumanian – Corporate Attorney

What is a Corporation?

A corporation is an independent legal entity, separate from the people who own (shareholders), control, and manage it. For both legal and tax purposes, a corporation acts as a legal “person” that can enter into contracts, incur debts, and pay taxes apart from its owners. If managed properly, a corporation shields the investors from personal liability. – To learn more about corporations, call corporate lawyer Roger Doumanian.

Corporation Types

There are several types of corporations to consider. Corporations may be S or C for tax purposes, as well as professional, closely-held, and non-profit. The type of corporation you need to choose is determined by the type of business you are in, the risk and liability factors common for your industry, whether your business is for or not-for-profit, and various other factors.

Corporations & Compliance

Forming a corporation is the easy part. However, dealing the formalities, regulations, and laws that govern a corporation is where most incorporated businesses fall short of compliance. In addition to running the day-to-day operation of your business, marketing, and staying ahead of your competitors, you are expected to comply with everything from employment laws to procedures that, if neglected, will invalidate the legitimacy of your corporation.
