Statistics suggest that as many as 95 percent of the businesses started in California today will not exist five years from now. Seemingly small decisions about ownership, financing and regulatory compliance can have a dramatic impact on the future of any company.
Corporate governance and regulatory compliance should not be an afterthought for the entrepreneur. They should be taken into account in the planning of any new venture. With the assistance of an experienced business and tax attorney, proper steps can be taken to ensure that your business is set up for success.
Governance and compliance ensures your company and all who work for it are in operating in a legal and ethical manner while complying with all federal, state and local laws, regulations and ordinances. We also ensure all regular and annual corporate meetings occur and are well documented and submit annual paperwork to California and/or appropriate state authorities.
