To preserve integrity and insure smooth functioning, all business entities benefit from the up-front establishment and ongoing maintenance of an effective and professional corporate governance structure. Privately-held, closely-held, and family-held businesses often forget to maintain these formalities. This mistake can produce serious downside consequences in the event of subsequent disputes. This lack of structure can also result in the loss of major new opportunities. Failure to meet the statutory requirements of a particular entity can create expenses and delays in capital transactions and in-flows of investments, and may expose shareholders to personal liability. So this is an area where an ounce of prevention often yields enormous benefits and complete cures. The Firm provides its clients with well-crafted ownership documentation and corporate formalities in the most expeditious manner and with the minimum amount of expense. We’ll set up your business entity to comply with all regulatory requirements and considerations including:
- Sarbanes-Oxley Act governance;
