Frequently Asked Questions

How does the type of business formed determine the way the law treats the business?

The type of business formed significantly influences how the law perceives and treats the business. Business law, which encompasses various areas such as contracts, corporations, tax, intellectual property, and employment law, among others, interacts differently with different types of businesses. For instance, if you form a sole proprietorship or partnership, the law does not distinguish between you and your business. This means that you bear personal liability for all business debts and legal issues. On the other hand, if you form a corporation or a limited liability company (LLC), the law treats your business as a separate legal entity. This means that the business itself, not the owners, is responsible for its debts and legal issues. The complexity of the business law also varies depending on the industry in which the business operates. Highly regulated industries, such as securities or internet-commerce, often require the expertise of business law attorneys to navigate the intricate and evolving legal landscape. These attorneys specialize in transactional work, structuring transactions to minimize the company's exposure to litigation, and providing objective advice on legal protection.
