From their offices in Long Beach, Curd, Galindo & Smith, L.L.P. assists clients in Los Angeles and Orange counties and throughout Southern California in the full range of business law matters, including entity formation, transactions, and business litigation.

Business Formation

One of the most significant decisions a new business owner must make is determining the appropriate type of business entity structure for the new venture. The type of entity selected will have significant tax and legal liability implications for the business. California’s Secretary of State website provides information regarding business formation, including the following entity options:

  • Corporation
  • Limited liability company (LLC)
  • General partnership
  • Limited partnership
  • Limited liability partnership (LLP)
  • Sole proprietorship

Our attorneys assist clients in determining the appropriate type of entity, preparing and filing the documents required to register the entity with the California Secretary of State, and preparing any other necessary documents, including shareholder or operating agreements.

Business Transactions

Once a business is formed, it must be able to conduct transactions which ensure the stability and profitability of the venture, and make acquisitions or mergers to expand profitability or market share. Our attorneys have the experience to protect our client’s interests in every transaction. We know how to draft contracts to ensure that a business is protected if any disputes arise, and apply our knowledge and negotiation expertise to make certain that every transaction makes financial sense for our client. The firm’s experienced transactional attorneys assist clients in a range of business matters, including all of the following:

  • Contracts
  • Construction contracts
  • Consulting agreements
  • Dissolution agreements
  • Leases
  • Purchase agreements
  • Security agreements
