Dedicated counselor helps Nebraskans establish business entities
The structure you choose for your business determines your personal liability for the business’s actions. Nebraska has different processes for forming different types of businesses. In addition to advising you on the potential pros and cons of each, we can help you establish the entity that works best for your business goals, which may be one of these:
- Sole proprietorship — You can establish a sole proprietorship if you run a business alone, without employees. You and your business are considered one entity, making you liable for the business’s finances and obligations. Though it is not necessary to register a sole proprietorship with the state, filing for a trade name allows you to bring civil actions on behalf of your business if necessary.
- Partnership — In Nebraska, you can have one or more co-owners to create a “general partnership” without filing with the state. Each partner is personally liable for a share of the business’s obligations. Alternatively, you and your partners can file as a “limited partnership” that provides limited liability for select partners.
- Limited liability company (LLC) — LLC owners enjoy certain tax advantages and protections against personal liability. An LLC allows flexibility in how you run your business and has fewer formal requirements than for corporations.
- Corporation — Corporations are entities that are separate from the owners. An owner (“shareholder”) has limited personal liability for the organization’s finances and obligations. C-Corps and S-Corps have different tax and ownership requirements, as do large corporations and small “closely held” corporations.
An informed attorney can help you avoid the pitfalls and legal hassles that business owners often experience when they try to do everything on their own. You can come to us with questions about licensing, tax status, bylaws and more.
Skilled lawyer looks out for business owners in contract creation and disputes
Signing a legally enforceable agreement should not be taken lightly, whether it pertains to a partnership, employment, a transaction or nondisclosure of trade secrets. We provide:
- Contract development and review — We write contracts using language that protects clients’ interests. When reviewing contracts written by others, we perform a thorough analysis of the terms and conditions and provide advice regarding potential changes.
- Breach of contract representation — If the terms of your contract are not upheld or become unsustainable, we will fight to achieve a favorable outcome for you.
We handle contract cases for sole proprietors and companies and corporations of all sizes.
