Business Formation

Tampa Business Lawyer | The Benkabbou Law Firm, PLLC

Starting a new business is exciting, but it requires a team of experts to help ensure that your business formation will stand on solid ground. Relying on non-lawyers and DIY Legal Kits is very dangerous and will end up costing a lot more in the future. You may think you are saving money by doing it yourself, but you can leave yourself vulnerable and it could cost you your business and even your entire net worth.

Deciding which business structure to incorporate is not as easy as it may seem. Salma highly recommends that you schedule a consultation with her so that she can properly advise on which business entity provides you the best legal liability protection based on your specific circumstances.
