We can assist with obtaining a Federal Tax Identification number and in the filing of the Combined Maryland Registration form, as well as anything else required to begin a business on a sound footing.

Each type of business has different liability and tax implications. We advise clients on the most appropriate choice for them based on our experience working with entities such as:

  • Partnerships
  • Limited Liability Partnerships
  • Sole Proprietorships

We also handle matters such as trademarks, stock certificates, insurance coverage and anything else required for a new business.

Winding up a business

Our legal representation extends to helping clients exit from a business. We work with them to develop business succession plans, sell the business and deal with problems such as partnership disputes that may lead to the closing of a business. We are litigators, and have been able to resolve disputes such as these, as well as contract disputes and infringement problems that can threaten the operation of a company.
