Every business is special and deserves expert legal guidance suited to its particular needs.

Business Formation

These days, starting a business can be a risky endeavor. Choosing the correct business entity can have lasting implications for the success or failure of your business.

The Espy, Metcalf & Espy Law Firm can help analyze issues such as:

  • Liability and asset protection
  • Tax law
  • Management and employment issues
  • Administrative responsibilities
  • Funding issues
  • Profit and loss allocations
  • Insurance needs
  • Rules and regulations that apply to your company or specific industry

Tax Planning

Do you dread tax time? Do all the federal and state filing requirements make your head spin? Entrepreneurs often wish they could spend their time starting up and growing their businesses rather than dealing with administrative duties.

Without a full understanding of the complex tax laws that affect your business, you may inadvertently structure your affairs in a manner that causes you to pay more taxes than you should. We can advise you on the tax needs for your specific business and ensure that you’ve met all the requirements to operate your company efficiently.

  • Filing your individual, corporate and business tax returns
  • Helping you develop a business tax plan
  • Defending you from tax crime charges and allegations
  • Preparing your business income reports

Succession planning is another business need that few anticipate but most face during the life of their business. The transition is often as much an emotional challenge as it is a legal challenge. If you own a family business, chances are you’ve discussed the transfer of management upon your retirement. If you haven’t documented these plans in a clearly articulated succession plan, your business may pass in a manner inconsistent with your wishes. The Espy, Metcalf & Espy Law Firm can help prevent this by reviewing your business needs and goals for the future and working with you to establish a solid succession plan that gives you peace of mind and ensures your business’s success for years to come.
