Knowledgeable Business Formation Lawyers Serving Southern California

Great companies like Hewlett-Packard, Apple and Amazon were started in garages and built from the ground up by motivated founders who had unique visions and boundless motivation. While the roots of many new businesses today are similarly simple, entrepreneurs do not have the luxury of experimenting with their company's legal structure, financing and other important legal agreements that must be in place from the start.

The Mahaffey Law Group, P.C., in Newport Beach, provides experienced legal counsel regarding business formation and a number of other key corporate law issues that must be determined at startup. In many ways, a company's success is determined before it even opens its doors for business. Working with a law firm that understands the importance of these early decisions is vital to your business's long-term success.

Business Formation Is Only The First Step

Our attorneys take the time to learn your business model and the unique aspects of your company that will affect what business entity is most suitable for you. We help our clients select a business entity that provides the most protection against personal liability and the best tax advantages. Common business formation options include:

  • Sole proprietorship
  • Limited liability company (LLC)
  • Limited liability partnership (LLP)
  • Professional corporation (PC)

Our clients also rely on us to draft or review shareholder and partnership agreements, employment contracts, commercial real estate purchase and lease agreements, vendor contracts, and more.

One indicator of the high quality of legal representation we provide is the length of the relationships we have developed with numerous businesses around Orange County and Southern California. We have counseled many of our corporate clients for decades, from startup through early growth and into maturity. It is gratifying to watch these companies grow and prosper through the years with our assistance.
