Experienced Business Formation Attorney Serving Mesa/Phoenix, Tucson and Surrounding Areas

Business formation and structure are inherently aligned, as how you form your business and establish your new company can make all the difference in how that business flourishes, including how you obtain financing. If you are establishing a business in Arizona, you want to work with an experienced business law attorney who knows the applicable laws and can guide you through every step of the process. This includes: selecting the right form of business entity, registration, organizational matters such as setting up a Board of Directors (if applicable), obtaining applicable licenses and permits, and tax considerations.

Setting Up a Business Entity

In order to ensure that your business startup is successful, several legal requirements must be carefully followed. Properly setting up your business entity at the outset reduces risk and liability in the future, and can help avoid significant, and expensive, legal complications.

Yusufov Law Firm PLLC can guide you through every step of the business formation process, including:

  • Creation of Business Name — There are specific legal requirements about naming and duplication. The name must be checked with the Arizona Corporation Commission (and possibly the US Patent and Trademark Office) and officially secured.
  • Selecting Entity Type – We will examine the specifics of your operation and advise on the best entity to protect your interests.
  • Preparing and Filing Documents with Arizona Corporation Commission — This includes Articles of Incorporation or Organization, as well as various related forms.
  • Creating Bylaws, an Operating Agreement, or a Partnership Agreement – bylaws, operating agreements, and partnership agreements establish the rules for the operation of your business and the arrangement between the business owners, if there is more than one.
  • Securing Proper Business Licensing – many types of businesses require proper licenses to operate, and failure to obtain a proper license can result in steep fines and other penalties.
  • Obtaining Federal Tax Identification – the business will need federal tax identification for federal taxation purposes, and likely also to set up financial accounts and enter into some financial transactions.
