Representative Business Formation Matters

  • I assisted an internationally known musician opening a Brooklyn music venue in 2015. I advised him on the choice of entity, tax status, and trademark. He also needed a New York business formation lawyer to negotiate his lease and represent him in his application for a full liquor license.
  • In the fall of 2015, I counseled a restaurateur on the choice of entity, tax implications and licensing issues regarding his new upscale restaurant in Manhattan.
  • In 2015, a long-term Client of mine, who owns a building in Greenwich Village, decided to partner with established Brooklyn restaurant owners and form a limited liability company. I negotiated the lease for the restaurant LLC in my Client’s building and advised him on indemnification, licensing, and construction issues.
