If you’ve decided to go into business by yourself or with one or more business partners, congratulations! Some of the choices you make before you ever make your first dollar in sales will have long-lasting impacts, so it’s important to make informed decisions.

One of those considerations is choosing the most appropriate legal structure for your business.

Limited Liability Companies

In order to form a Washington state Limited Liability Company (LLC), the business owner(s) must choose a business name that meets certain requirements under the law and must designate a registered agent.

To formalize the business so it can operate legally in the state, legal formation documents must be filed with the Secretary of State’s office. The business must also obtain tax identification numbers and business licenses, as required depending on the nature of the business.

Vancouver LLC attorney Brian Grambow helps clients with these critical first steps.

Operating Agreements

For any business, it is important to determine how major decisions will be handled. An operating agreement can help avoid potential disagreements later. Typical provisions in operating agreements describe how financial rights and matters will be handled, and how managerial responsibility will be divided among the business owners.

Grambow Law Office PLLC has experience helping business owners draft legal operating agreements to formalize these important decisions.
