Silicon Valley Firm Assists with California Business Formation

Experienced Gilroy attorney provides advice suited to your goals

Most people would say that they’d be unable to trust the future of their business to someone they’ve never met or rely on an adviser who has no knowledge of their particular operation. However, many entrepreneurs rely on templates from websites to form their business without understanding the consequences. Anyone with more than $5,000 at risk benefits from a competent review by a qualified California business attorney. At Goldblatt Law Firm in Gilroy, attorney L. Steven Goldblatt is a 1979 Stanford Law graduate with nearly 40 years of experience and over $1 billion in transactions completed. My firm provides comprehensive support to startups in any field. If you are willing to spend a reasonable sum for legal work, affordable for middle class workers and small to middle medium-sized businesses, you can’t afford to sign one document without review by a knowledgeable lawyer.

Trustworthy lawyer creates legal entities to protect clients’ assets

During a free initial consultation, I can discuss the options you have and the key decisions you face as you seek to build a successful business foundation. My firm helps clients understand all aspects of business formation, including:

  • Limited liability entities — People and companies increasingly rely on limited liability corporations (LLCs) and partnerships (LLPs) to protect their assets while launching a new venture. I can explain the pros and cons of these entities.
  • Corporations — If you seek to incorporate in California or another state, my firm will prepare the necessary documentation and advise you of your responsibilities.
  • Subchapter S — In many cases, the owner of a closely held business might benefit from this tax status, which allows income to pass through to their personal assets for tax purposes. I will outline the eligibility requirements and help you determine if this arrangement will work for you.
  • 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) organizations — My firm assists nonprofits and social welfare organizations who seek 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) tax status so that they can avoid undue hassle and expense.

As a small-business owner myself, I can relate to the financial pressures that new ventures face. That is why my firm maintains affordable rates for clients throughout Santa Clara, Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties.

Knowledgeable counselor handles mergers, sales and acquisitions

Buying, selling or merging a business is a process that presents numerous challenges. From the moment you start to consider such a move, you need qualified legal counsel to ensure that the transaction runs smoothly. Whether you require assistance with due diligence, contract preparation, required approvals or other key tasks, my firm has the ability to make your merger, sale or acquisition successful.
