Business Meeting

Detroit's lucrative small business landscape offers numerous opportunities for entrepreneurs. However, ensuring the right business structure is crucial to safeguarding your and your partners' interests. Too often, ventures suffer due to inadequate planning, leading to costly disputes. Proactive measures, such as clearly delineating owners' rights from the outset, can prevent future conflicts.

When establishing your business, partnering with a seasoned attorney is essential to drafting the necessary documents and avoiding future complications. For corporations, this involves drafting Articles of Incorporation, Resolutions, Stock Certificates, and By-Laws. LLCs require Articles of Organization and an Operating Agreement. Regardless of the chosen entity, obtaining proper tax identification numbers (FEIN, State, and Local Tax IDs) is imperative.

In multi-member businesses, defining each member's responsibilities and expectations upfront is critical to mitigating potential conflicts. Failure to do so often leads to costly litigation and dissatisfaction among stakeholders.
