Starting A Business Roswell GA

Experienced CPA assists small and large companies in the Atlanta area

Starting A Business Roswell GAWhether you are launching a business or engaged in a legal dispute, skilled legal advice from an experienced attorney can be the difference between success and failure. At James N. Cline, P.C. in Roswell, my firm provides knowledgeable legal advice and strong civil advocacy to businesses and individuals. I help new and existing companies satisfy legal standards and resolve problems in a professional manner that minimizes undue hassle and expense. If you require legal support for a business or civil litigation matter, you can count on my more than 20 years of experience helping clients to achieve favorable outcomes.

The excitement of starting a new business can quickly turn to feeling overwhelmed by the details. As a CPA, I offer my business clients a distinct advantage in being able to advise them equally well on legal and financial matters. To ensure your venture starts out on a firm foundation, I can help you make informed decisions on items such as:

  • Incorporation and tax status — I outline the relative advantages and disadvantages of various types of legal entities such as corporations, limited partnerships, and limited liability companies. After you have chosen what works best for you, my firm will prepare and file the required materials with the Georgia Secretary of State or the relevant authority in another jurisdiction, if you prefer. When you are considering whether to file as an S or C corporation for tax purposes, my experience as a certified public accountant offers insight that most attorneys cannot provide.
  • Buy-sell agreements — Businesses with multiple owners need to prepare detailed guidelines that specify what happens when one owner chooses to surrender their share quickly due to health, financial or other concerns. I work with companies to create clear, thorough buy-sell agreements so that each party’s interests are protected and clear instructions exist on the transfer of ownership shares.
  • Licensing and regulatory requirements — Creating a legal entity for your new business is just the first step. My firm can make sure that you have the necessary government approvals and permits and create internal guidelines that promote compliance with state and federal laws.
