Successful business owners, investors and participants not only set up entity structures that work for the business structure but also for asset, estate, and tax protections.

Small Business & Real Estate Startups:
Options must be considered regarding whether the business is an LLC, small business corporation, whether its an S or C, whether its domiciled in California or another jurisdiction, whether its a joint venture or co-counder entity, and whether the IP is owned in one entity and licensed to another. Not all structures or entities are created equally.
Asset & Estate Protections:
Options should be considered upfront on whether the owners, investors or rights holders should take extra measures to protect its rights, money flow, IP and brands from creditors, third party lawsuits or other owners or contracting parties.Â Certain structures in California allow for special protections including the Private Retirement Trust, ERISA Pension, etc.
