Starting and growing a business can be one of the most exciting things you will do in your life. Forming it the right way, funding it the right way, and creating a lawful and sound structure so that the business can launch, expand, and profit requires professional legal input, however. That’s where a New York City small business lawyer comes in.

Small Business/Startup Formation

Whether you are a solo entrepreneur, a small partnership, or a small to medium sized startup, we will advise you on the best way to structure your business entity, paying careful attention to potential liability, governance, profit structure, and tax issues.

Here at Bergstein Flynn Knowlton & Pollina PLLC, we help clients set up the following types of business entities:

  • Sole proprietorships
  • Partnerships
  • LLCs
  • C-Corporations and S-Corporations

We can draft and file the paperwork you need to bring your small business or startup to life, and guide you through everything you need to do to make sure that you can begin operations sooner rather than later.

We know that your company is important to you and that you want to be part of the process, even on the legal front. That is why we will be sure to keep you abreast of the process throughout, soliciting your feedback where appropriate, and pursuing your goals with the utmost dedication to your business and its members. Additional small business legal services include:

  • Contracts: We will work with you to draft partnership agreements, operating agreements, and any other type of agreement or resolution necessary to fit your company’s unique goals.
  • Financing: We will also assist you in securing and closing financing and investment capital in a way that both protects the interests of your company and ensures that you are in lawful compliance with relevant laws and regulations.
  • General Counsel Work: Setting up a business and opening its doors is only half the battle, so your legal collaboration with us does not have to end once the partnership, LLC or corporation is formally established. Bergstein Flynn Knowlton & Pollina PLLC provides ongoing general counsel work or startups and small businesses, handling legal matters related to your business as they arise.
  • Litigation Risk Analysis: Our business attorneys will provide you with a timely and concise analysis of the risks associated with a given piece of commercial litigation, whether you are a plaintiff or defendant.  We also will work closely with you to make you and your company aware of litigation risks long before they become a threat.
