As part of BHPW’s commitment to offering personalized service to all of our clients, our business attorneys know that not everything about starting a business is black and white.

Knowing how to shut down a business is just as important as starting one.
On the other hand, there may come a time for a business where dissolution is either the best or only option. In those instances, our attorneys have the expertise to advise clients as to the appropriate steps that must be taken in order to properly dissolve a business.
Depending on the type of entity, dissolving a business can be an extremely simple task, or one that involves following a company’s operating agreement or other governing documents. Dissolution can also be more or less complex depending on how many stakeholders are a part of the business, or the nature of assets of the business that must be sold. Business dissolution often involves many other parties other than the owners and knowing exactly who should be notified about the closing of a business, including creditors and state offices/agencies, is a crucial part of successfully dissolving a business. Additionally, there are certain tax requirements that must be met when dissolving a business entity, and failure adhere to IRS or local tax regulations is a serious matter. Don’t let a simple mistake trigger future legal pains. Let our attorneys make sure the process is handled correctly from start to finish.
