Stress-Free Estate Planning = Conflict-Free Trust Administration

Los Angeles Business Entity Formation Lawyer

Assisting Clients with LLCs, Corps & Professional Corporations

Such business entities become necessary to limit personal liability when purchasing investment properties or conducting a business for profit. The limited liability protection these legal entities offer shields one’s personal assets held in his/her living trust from the liabilities of the business or rental properties. The specific type of engagement can lend itself to a specific type of legal entity. For example, investment real estate ownership lends itself to setting up an LLC, while doctors, lawyers, veterinarians, and other professionals are mandated to form professional corporations and register those with the respective body governing the profession.

Business Succession Planning Matters

Business succession planning is essential to those who hold interests in corporations, LLCs, partnerships, professional corporations, etc.

This typically includes:

  • Execution of assignments of those business interests to the living trust
  • Reissuing of ownership certificates to the trust
  • Updating the bylaws, buy-sell, operating, and/or partnership agreements of the business entities

These steps are crucial to reflect the existence of the living trust and to ensure that on the death of a business owner, both the family members of the deceased and the interests of the surviving business partners are protected.
