Formation

Assembling the pieces so you can get down to business.

We have helped countless clients through the corporate and limited liability company formation process, and can do the same for you. Our attorneys understand the advantages and disadvantages of each type of organization, including the tax and liability consequences. We will identify your needs and advise you of your options.

After we help you settle on the type of organization, we will commence the process of filing the proper paperwork with the Department of State and draft any necessary documents.

Our Corporate and Business Practice can assist you with building your business, one step at a time.

Dissolution

Protecting your legacy.

Dissolving a business can be more complicated than the formation process. Our attorneys will help you through the dissolution process, divesting the company of all its assets and liabilities. We’ll protect your personal interests and make sure that all the organization’s obligations are fulfilled.

If you’re looking to dissolve a corporation, limited liability company, partnership or sole proprietorship, contact our office today and speak with our Corporate and Business Practice attorneys.

Governance & Succession

Experienced counsel on your side.

Our attorneys advise clients of their rights and obligations in their role as corporate shareholders, board members, and/or officers, or as members of limited liability companies. Clients often seek assistance with document management and communications with shareholders, or counsel regarding board decisions and resolutions.

We have also helped many privately-held companies successfully plan and execute transitions of ownership. Having a succession plan in place can ensure a smooth transition in the face of an unexpected departure. Flink Smith Law will help you develop a contingency plan so you can properly manage the uncertainty and expense associated with the loss of a key member of the organization by defining the skills and duties required of particular positions, evaluating and identifying potential succession candidates, and determining the value of the organization.

Insurance Matters

Decades of insurance know-how.

Many of our attorneys have decades of experience representing insurance companies. We advise businesses of their rights and obligations under liability policies, and let them know if their policy provides coverage in a specific situation. If your insurance company is denying coverage improperly, our attorneys will fight to get you the coverage to which you’re entitled.
