The type of entity a future business owner chooses to form and the ownership structure is important for a variety of reasons such as how the entity operates, how it will be taxed, how its assets are protected, how it can grow, and its future succession. At NW Legacy Law, our business planning attorneys advise clients in both Washington and Oregon. We help our clients to choose the best entities for their circumstances and goals, the most effective ownership structure, and then guide them so their business ideas can thrive as business realities.
