Business Entity Formation Services

January 24, 2021

Lolla Stovall —Your Business Formation Lawyer in Houston One of the most important steps for a business is deciding to form a business entity. The second most important step is formalizing your relationship with partners and lenders through the key entity agreements. While businesses in Texas can take on various forms, and each form has different strengths, an LLC is currently the most popular type of entity in Texas as it combines the features of a partnership and a corporation. The liability of members is limited to their initial investment, while the members enjoy the same pass-through tax treatment as partnerships and S-corporations. Additionally, the initial registration fee charged by the Texas Secretary of State is $300, with extra fees common for name search and name reservation. While it is advisable to put an LLC agreement in place at the time of the LLC formation, in absence of an agreement, the relationship among the LLC members is governed by the Texas Business Organizations Code. Though low-cost entity agreement forms are readily available online, experienced business attorneys at our firm can tell you which disagreements most commonly arise among business partners and can help you plan for those contingencies when designing your agreement. We provide the following business entity formation services: Entity Selection and Name Reservation Registration Filings LLC Operating Agreements Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws Shareholder Agreements Partnership Agreements Buy-Sell Agreements Member and Partner Buy-Outs Member/Shareholder/Director Authorizing Resolutions Notices of Annual and Special Shareholder/Member Meetings If you are forming a new business entity, protect your business investment and avoid common legal pitfalls.

Lolla Stovall —Your Houston Real Estate Lawyer We understand that for many of our clients, purchasing real estate for their first permanent location or for their expanding operations is as exciting as it is costly, time-consuming and stressful. Our firm has the necessary legal expertise in Texas real estate law to assist young startups and established businesses with their real property acquisition needs in Houston and beyond. We have experience with sophisticated multimillion dollar industrial property transactions and smaller, commercial leases. WE are also well versed in the pitfalls specific to Texas real estate, such as lack of zoning, unexpected deed restrictions, and historic environmental liabilities, to name just a few. When caught in a timely manner, these issues are most often addressed between the parties to the transaction through a price adjustment and negotiated with the lender prior to closing. However, when such issues go unnoticed, they can become costly headaches for the new business owner. Based in Houston, we have worked with several generations of local developers, homebuilders, contractors, landlords and industrial tenants in all aspects of acquisition, construction, leasing and disposition of developed and undeveloped properties in and around Houston. Here are some of the few areas we cover: Real Estate Purchase and Sale Transactions Commercial Space Leasing Property Management Agreements Construction Agreements Mechanics’ and Materialmen Liens Title Objections and Defects Letters If you are looking to purchase commercial real estate or need an expert in real estate law, contact Lolla Stovall — your real estate lawyer in Houston.
