What type of business entity is right for me?

Determining the best legal entity for your business will depend on a number of different factors. The main goal in any type of business structure involves protecting all members of the business from personal liability. Our law firm will ask a number of detailed questions and will confer with your accountant in order to help determine which structure will best suit your needs. Once we have determined your needs, we will prepare the appropriate documentation to establish your selected entity.

Each structure involves different taxation and business succession questions.

After we have established your legal entity, our firm can continue to provide legal guidance throughout the life of your company. Much of our firm's work involves representing businesses in risk management and litigation. Attorney Len Heath is a graduate of the College of William and Mary's Business School and Law School, and was selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers® in business litigation from 2005 to 2009 and 2011 to 2012. Attorney Heath has a wealth of experience and can offer proactive, efficient counsel.
