Corporate & Business Law

Incorporations We can do these quickly and efficiently, at a reasonable cost.  We have standard share structures which can save you money in the long run if your business is successful, as they should not have to be amended in order to add new classes of shares.

One of the decisions to be made at the outset is whether you wish to have the corporation incorporated with a specific name, or with just a number.  If a name is desired, we can search that name to see if it will conflict with any other registrations.  For certain corporations, a number alone is sufficient, or you can incorporate with a number, and file a business name registration for the corporation.

Defendants who are unable to afford counsel are advised of their right to a court-appointed attorney.
