The creation and maintenance of a separate legal entity for a business are one of the most important steps to take in protecting a company’s legal identity. The attorneys at MDO Partners have significant experience in assisting companies to select the appropriate legal entity for their business, including corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, etc. We also regularly draft and counsel clients on corporate governance matters involving the appropriate process, customs and documents to govern the management of their entities, including:
