Helping Business Owners Start Their Business

Starting a business properly is very important to the success of any business. When you are starting a new business, the way you choose to structure it may have a profound influence on its future. Our Business Lawyers will discuss a number of issues to consider when you are incorporating your business, including:

  • Anticipated size of your business
  • Who should be entitled to make major decisions
  • Tax implications of incorporation
  • Share structure and the roles of family members
  • Income splitting
  • Tax planning
  • The role of investors
  • Liability and protection in case of bankruptcy and legal disputes
  • Succession or exit strategy

The Right Structure to Meet Your Needs

We can discuss your business plans and the advantages and disadvantages of the various business structures available, including:

  • Sole proprietorships
  • Limited partnerships
  • Limited liability partnerships
  • General partnerships
  • Joint ventures
  • Provincial corporations

Our Lawyers will carry out the documentation necessary to help you establish your business and maximize its potential. We will also negotiate and draft thorough and comprehensive partnership and shareholder Agreements.

As your business grows, if you need to restructure your business to adapt to a changing business reality or to changes in your needs as a business owner, we will advise you regarding your options.
