Forms of Business Ownership

There are several types of business ownership. Determining what type of ownership is right for you and your business is a matter of understanding your business's function and evaluating its goals. It is advisable to work with a business attorney during the process of setting up your business and determining the type of ownership.

Common forms of business ownership/classification include:

  • Sole proprietorships
  • Partnerships
  • Limited liability companies (LLC)
  • S corporations
  • C corporations tax implications

When determining how to classify your business, attorney Michael P. Keleher will explain the benefits of each option. He will guide you through all of the processes involved so you can concentrate on effectively running your business.
