Limited Liability Company (LLC)
One of the most popular and common forms of business entity is the Limited Liability Company (LLC). The main reason most LLCs are formed is to provide protection to the members (owners). The members are not personally liable for lawsuits brought against the LLC as long as they follow the regulations for operating an LLC. Forming an LLC also reserves and protects the name of the LLC from use by others and they will be required to get permission if the name they want to use is too similar to the name of the LLC. Name protection is afforded by filing the required Certificate of Formation with the Texas Secretary of State. In some instances there are some tax benefits of forming an LLC. The Law Office of Roy Neal Linnartz, PLLC does not offer tax advice and suggests you consult with an accountant regarding tax benefits.

One of the hardest parts of running a business is dealing with employees. It is much easier to perfect the process or procedure for the product or service that you have to offer than it is to manage the people that are part of that process. An attorney can help with writing employment policies that make the process easier and that are in compliance with state and federal laws. A good employee manual serves as your instruction book for employees and what they can expect from the employer and what the employer can expect from them in the employment relationship. An attorney can help you deal with that problem employee so that you limit your liability. Whether it is handling discipline or termination of employment, an attorney can help you through the process to limit possible liability and help you follow the laws. Prevention of employee issues is best and we can help you with that; but, not all issues can be prevented and we can help when there is an issue.
