Business Entities

It's important for businesses to “get it right – the first time”.    At the Law Office of Jennifer M. Settles, this is what we do.      

We assist clients in the formation of legal entities in all US jurisdictions.    Jennifer strategizes with her clients regarding optimal entity structures to accomplish their goals, and advises her clients on the importance of liability-limitation through the use of carefully formed entities, as well as best practices for the preservation of separate entity status.     Jennifer represents her clients in all phases of their business lifecycle, from negotiating and papering their LLC agreements, to capitalization, contract negotiation and implementation, and exit strategies.
