Business Formation and Dissolution Lawyers

Wheaton Business Formation Lawyers

Experienced Business Law Attorneys

At Rolewick & Gutzke, P.C., our business law attorneys help aspiring entrepreneurs transform concepts and ideas into successful commercial opportunities. From the earliest planning stages, to forming a new company and building for the future, our firm has the tools to assist businesspeople as they turn their dreams into reality.

Since our founding in 1978, our lawyers have taken a rather simple approach. We build lasting relationships with our clients so that we are fully equipped to advise them on a variety of corporate and business issues, including business formation, dissolving a business, and everything in between. When necessary, we take preventative steps on behalf of our clients to ensure that their best interests are fully protected.

Choosing a Business Entity

Selecting a business structure for a commercial venture is one the most important decisions a businessperson will need to make as he or she gets started. We help clients choose an entity such as a sole proprietorship, partnership, S-corporation, C-corporation, limited liability company (LLC), or limited liability partnership (LLP). Our firm also assists clients looking to establish charitable entities and not-for-profit organizations. Choosing a business entity requires a careful analysis of all inherent risks and potential benefits, as a well as factors that include:

  • Who will own the business?
  • Who will manage and run the business?
  • What are the potential liabilities?
  • In what industry or sector will the business operate?
  • What licenses, certifications, or exemptions are required?

Our attorneys will help you complete all of the required paperwork so that the owners can focus on getting the business off the ground. We provide assistance with obtaining federal employer identification numbers, developing by-laws, and creating shareholder agreements, operating agreements, employment contracts, employee manuals and handbooks, and any other necessary documents. In addition, we offer guidance with business franchising and provide registered agent services for our clients. Our firm can even help clients with associated real estate transactions.

Dissolving a Business

A solid business plan should contain provisions for the long term, especially if the intention is for the business to outlive its founders. Sometimes, however, circumstances such as a divorce, the death of a partner, or market pressures may force a business to restructure or even close. At Rolewick & Gutzke, P.C., our experienced attorneys can help dissolve business partnerships, facilitate buyouts, and develop exit strategies for those who wish to leave the company. Our goal is to find workable, realistic solutions that protect our clients' best interests, regardless of the challenges.
