Milwaukee, WI breach of contract attorneyBy Attorney Jaclyn Kallie

While most people who go into business with a partner take care to select ones who have similar goals, inevitably, there will be disagreements from time to time. Often, these issues can be solved through honest, open communication. However, sometimes a dispute can turn severe and ugly very quickly, which is when an experienced commercial litigation attorney can help. How a business is set up can also come into play.

Talking the Issues Out

First and foremost, successful business partnerships are based on the ability to communicate, at no time is this more important then when there is a disagreement between partners. Discussing these issues may demand a certain amount of diplomacy—and perhaps compromise—on both sides, but the outcome of maintaining the partnership and getting the business back on track can be worth it.

What was once an unknown market has transformed into a multi-million dollar industry, generating millions of dollars in revenue in the United States alone.

Milwaukee business entity selection lawyerIf you are about to take the exciting step of forming a new business, you should not overlook the important decision of the type of entity your business will utilize. The business entity you select will affect every facet of your business, so you should make the decision with the aid of trusted legal professionals.

No two situations are the same. Simply because a competitor or similar business has utilized, for example, an LLC business structure does not mean that this is the right choice in your situation.

Why Business Type Matters

The law defines several types of business entities, and each has distinct features that could help or hurt your business. The type of entity selected will affect how the business is taxed, and different business entities have different requirements in terms of paperwork. The potential personal liability that a business owner may be exposed to is another key consideration. Finally, the type of entity you select will dictate how you can raise money.
