At Avisen Legal, we bring our deep knowledge of business to the table to assist you with just about any aspect relating to business including the laws that govern how to start, buy, manage or sell any type of business.

Limited Liability Companies

The Limited Liability Company (LLC) is the most used business entity form. Businesses in all industries avail themselves of the tax flexibility and advantages of the LLC form. Our lawyers work with new and existing limited liability companies (LLCs) from entity selection to formation to operation to purchase or sale. We help startup and existing business owners with the tax and legal aspects of LLCs, with experience with Minnesota and Delaware LLCs as well as with LLCs formed under other state laws.

“The LLC is a great business option for early-stage companies with a simple capital structure as well as experience businesses with complex investor-based structures. The governance and financial flexibility of the LLC makes it a great choice for both single-member LLCs (SMLLCs) as well multi-member, multi-class enterprises.”
