Cooper Law LLC
Developing capital structures for emerging companies:
This includes consulting with the client to decide what form of entity (C corporation, S corporation, limited liability company, or joint venture) makes most sense for the client’s business (or for the transaction in question). It also includes helping the client to understand the ramifications of various ownership proportions with other company founders or strategic partners. After these decisions have been made, we move to drafting the formative documents. For corporations this includes the incorporator’s resolutions, initial resolutions for the director(s), the Certificate of Incorporation and the Bylaws. For S corporations we add in the IRS Form 2553 – Election by a Small Business Corporation. For limited liability companies (“LLCs”) this includes the organizer’s resolutions, initial manager(s) resolutions, Articles of Organization (in Delaware, The Certificate of Formation), and an Operating Agreement (in Delaware, the Limited Liability Company Agreement). For all companies we either get an employer identification number from the IRS and a Connecticut taxpayer identification number (if appropriate) or work with the client or their accountant to make sure this gets done.
