  • C-Corporation
  • S Corporation
  • Limited Liability Corporation
  • Partnerships
  • Sole Proprietorship

Governing Documents & Agreements

Additionally, when buying a business or starting one, it is important to institute a governing document that details the business’s operating and ownership structure. Adopting a governing document, such as corporate by-laws, a partnership agreement, or an operating agreement, enables the efficient operation of your business and details the relationships among the parties involved.

The utilization of a governing document provides structured decision-making and relief for grievances, while also specifying the rights and obligations of each party. Additionally, the governing documents serve as an agreement between the business participants regarding transfer of ownership, dissolution, division of profits and losses, and how the business is managed.

These documents, which leave nothing to chance or interpretation, are critical to your business running smoothly and for legal protection. As your St. Louis legal team, we will personally tailor your governing documents to fit your needs and accomplish your goals.
