As a Chicago resident who’s looking into forming your own business, it’s important to have a strong team supporting you. Pentiuk, Couvreur & Kobiljak PC can step in when you need legal help, acting as your guide in the often-complex world of business litigation.

First of all, when you’re starting a business, there are a lot of legalities to get into. Actually filing your business is one of the simplest steps, but there is a lot of paperwork to go through, and there will likely be terms you aren’t familiar with. For example, do you want to file your company under a sole proprietorship? What about a limited liability corporation? Based on that decision, you’ll have different legalities to look through. This can affect your taxes, your federal and state-level compliance standards, and your distribution of stock.

Business growth will also demand continued guidance. Starting it all up will have its own set of requirements, but as you and your business grow, you’ll need to tweak your game plan. Valuation, litigation, and transferring stocks and assets are just a few of the topics that might come up as your business gains years and size. You may also want some help making big changes or decisions, as is the case with rebranding, remarketing, merging with other companies, or even selling your business.
