Business FAQs

Nantz Law’s corporate attorneys based in Rock Hill and Charleston provide comprehensive legal counsel to inventors, entrepreneurs, professionals, and early-stage businesses in South Carolina. Their services encompass various aspects of business organizations and formations, including expert guidance on entity selection, taxation considerations, capitalization and ownership structures, buy-sell agreements, and trademark registrations and protection. With their extensive experience, they assist clients in forming the most suitable business entities such as limited liability companies (LLCs), corporations (S-Corp and C-Corp), limited and general partnerships, joint ventures, and non-profit corporations.

The main business organization forms include sole proprietorships, general partnerships, limited partnerships, corporations, and limited liability companies (LLCs). Each form has its own advantages and considerations, and the choice depends on factors such as the business’s ownership structure, operational needs, and tax implications.

When choosing a business organization form, business owners should consider three key factors. First, they should assess the liability protection provided by each form to safeguard their personal assets. Second, they should evaluate the business asset protection offered by the specific entity. Finally, they should analyze the management structure of the business organization to ensure it aligns with their needs and preferences.

At Nantz Law, we understand the critical role that well-drafted and negotiated business contracts play in the success of businesses in South Carolina, including Rock Hill and Charleston. Our corporate attorneys have extensive experience in developing and drafting business contracts across various industries. We recognize that every business has unique needs and objectives, and we tailor our services accordingly. By leveraging our expertise, we ensure that our clients’ rights and interests are protected within the framework of solid and enforceable business contracts.

Mergers and Acquisitions is one of the firm’s greatest strengths and has been a central focus since its establishment over ten years ago. The firm’s attorneys handle multiple business acquisitions on average each month. They possess expertise in navigating complex legal and financial issues that arise during mergers and acquisitions, providing counsel throughout the entire process of transferring businesses or their assets from sellers to buyers.

The three main concerns for business owners are limited liability, business asset protection, and management structure. Business owners want to ensure that they are not personally liable for the company’s debts (except in cases of personal misconduct or guarantees). They also seek to protect their business assets from individual creditors. Lastly, the management structure of the chosen business organization form should align with the owners’ needs and accommodate both active and passive ownership.

Generally, businesses should be organized and domiciled in the state where their principal operations will be conducted. For most businesses operating in South Carolina, it is appropriate to organize the business in the home state. However, there are instances where selecting a foreign state may be necessary due to more favorable business organization rules. In cases involving operations in multiple states, the company may need to obtain authorization to transact business in each state where it operates.
