If you are considering starting a business, you probably already have a picture in your mind. You know what products or services you want to offer and what image you want to present to the public. With all the excitement of a new business venture, it can be easy to forget the legal details. But those details can have huge tax and liability implications on your business and your investors. At Edgar Law Group, LLP, we have helped aspiring entrepreneurs throughout California take these first important steps toward starting a business. As a business formation attorney in San Jose, Ronda Edgar listens to her clients’ goals and vision and helps them establish the business structure that works best for them.

This is a task best done with the advice of a San Jose business formation attorney.
There are a number of types of business organizations from which to choose, including two new types of corporations recently created in California. Each has different benefits, drawbacks and procedural requirements. Business organizations include:
No one form is right for every situation.
