ADVICE YOU CAN BUILD UPON
to business law home
Furnari Scher we look beyond the immediate horizon to assist in preparing
you for long-term success. Our approach is to understand your business
completely, so we provide advice you can rely on to steer your company
through startup, growth stages, and beyond. Even if you only have a
vision of what your company or product will be, we can assist in choosing
the ideal structure based on your goals and tax requirements.
Your Business Entity Can Save Time and Money
Avoid wasting time and money when organizing your business entity by
drawing from our experience and knowledge. For example, few business
owners realize that in most states, it is far more costly for a single
owner to organize as an LLC as compared to a corporation. As New York
LLC startup attorneys, we help clients choose the most cost-effective
business entity that will serve their immediate and long-term needs.
The Appropriate State For Filing
Should you organize in New York, Delaware or Nevada? We help clients
organize their business in the jurisdiction that makes the most sense
for them. Organize your business in the wrong jurisdiction and you will
likely be paying more money than necessary to start your business.
Agreements To Avoid Costly Disputes
Want a sure-fire way to blow apart your business? Go into business with
the wrong partners and unclear roles and responsibilities. We help clients
identify and articulate their understandings in a clear written agreement.
Hopefully you will never have to rely on the agreement, but if things
go bad, the cost of retaining a litigation attorney to clean up the
mess can be 10 - 20 times more expensive than constructing a good agreement
from the beginning.

of Assets With Proper Corporate Records
The primary reason for incorporating your business is to protect your
personal assets from liabilities relating to the business. Maintaining
good corporate records is essential to upholding the corporate veil
that prevents business creditors from gaining access to your personal
assets. One value-added role we play is to facilitate organizational
and annual board and stockholder meetings to elect officers and directors,
insuring your business entity remains in force. Ask about our Corporate
Organizer designed specifically for this purpose.
the Compensation You Deserve
Employees and consultants can protect their rights and obtain beneficial
compensation and employment terms that they never even considered possible,
given the right guidance. Clients benefit from our experience as we
negotiate and draft:
Stock option plans
Fair and reasonable employment contracts to protect the employer’s
Corporate Governance – The “Deal
Killer” for Investors
If you plan to do any kind of transaction that involves bankers, brokers,
angels, VCs, institutional investors or a person of any level of financial
sophistication, disorganized and stale corporate records can stall -
or even kill - a deal.
When you are in the midst of pursuing a deal is no time to worry about
bringing your corporate governance and other records up to date. We
keep you current and organized, ensuring a seamless transition into
a deal. Ask about our Corporate Organizer
designed specifically for this purpose.
Contracts – Protection While You Conduct Business
We anticipate the unknowns of running your business by preparing agreements
for every type of transaction you may need to enter into. Whether it’s
a supplier, customer, or joint venture partner, we make sure your interests
are protected without being an obstructionist to your business operations.
Plan Reviews for Experienced Guidance
As business owners ourselves, we know about most aspects of running
a business. We help clients through their business planning and systems
preparation stages, and provide a unique perspective to this process,
adding value to this vital phase in their business.
