Forming a Business in Pennsylvania

Legally starting a business is one of the most important steps you will take as an entrepreneur. It gives you credibility as an owner, and it allows your potential customers and investors to take you seriously. Plus, forming your business will provide you with a layer of legal separation from your organization in the event of a liability issue or lawsuit, which can ultimately protect your personal assets.

At Erie Business Law, we help entrepreneurs take their ideas from concept to reality. From mom & pops and Kickstarters to daring digital storefronts, our clients are businesses in all different sizes and industries. Whether you have goals of hiring hundreds of employees or you're simply trying to get your doors open, having a professional guide you through the business filing process will save you time, money, and stress in the long run, as well as give you guidance through the difficult decisions you will have to make throughout.

Not only do we assist entrepreneurs in selecting and registering their PA business, but we also advise our clients on obtaining proper business licensing, permits, and drafting governing business documents. Common business entities in Pennsylvania include:

  • Corporations (S-Corporations and C-Corporations)
  • Partnerships (General and Limited)
  • Limited Liability Companies
  • Professional Companies
  • Sole Proprietorships

The small business attorneys at Erie Business Law are well-versed in drafting Partnership Agreements, Operating Agreements, Bylaws, and other important documents involved in setting up your business. We also advise clients on tax matters, real estate issues, employee affairs, and certain intellectual property cases.
