Starting Your Business

Starting-Your-Own-BusinessThere are plenty out-of-state companies who provide boilerplate documents to register your business with the state.

However, at Adams Law Office, LLC, an attorney with years of experience in the Maryland and District of Columbia jurisdictions we will not only prepare and ensure timely and efficient filing of your Articles of Incorporation or Articles of Organization, but will also include statutory language in your Articles to protect your business and personal assets.

The purpose statement of your Articles is an important and often overlooked area where, if not properly drafted, can subject the owners of a company to personal liability for activities outside the scope of their stated business purpose.

Adams Law Office, LLC works hard for our Maryland and DC clients every day to provide the highest quality service, so that incorporating or registering your business can be accomplished quickly and properly – saving you time and money!

Top 3 Mistakes Incorporation Companies Entrepreneurs Make Incorporating Businesses

  • 1. Registering a business as a corporation when an LLC or S corporation would be a better fit or vice versa – the “one-size-fits-all mistake.”
  • 2. Inserting only a narrow purpose statement in Articles or Organization/Incorporation – the “short-sighted and potential invitation to increased liability mistake.”
  • 3. Failing to provide additional business start-up advice, such as corporate cautions, dos and don’ts, and next steps – the “you get what you pay for mistake.”
