Entity Formation & Incorporation

New York, New Jersey, California, and D.C. Business Law Attorneys

At Pierce & Kwok LLP,  a majority of our attorneys are themselves serial entrepreneurs and early stage investors in dozens of start-ups. We innately understand the challenges and risks facing today’s creative professional and are therefore especially equipped to advise them. We excel at guiding our clients as regards entity selection, operating agreements, shareholder agreements, and bylaws, and we are partnered with an expert team of outside tax-attorneys, internationally experienced CPA’s, and outsourced COO’s. We have literally started hundreds of business, most with a significant degree of success and steady expansion. Consulting our wide-ranging start-up client set is one of our absolute favorite advisory positions to assume. Most often after assisting our client in getting off the ground clients almost always continue to rely on our team for their ongoing legal needs.

Our New York City-based business formation attorneys and start-up advisors understand the entrepreneurial paradigm far better than most. We comprehend the challenges on multiple levels; management, tax liabilities, financing compliance, overhead costs, employment issues, and legal fees. Reach out. We listen to your drives and your initiatives, absorb those, and then focus on your growth trajectory.
