Skillful entity selection and structuring are the foundation of an intelligent business and financial strategy. Gunster’s lawyers integrate numerous considerations into the entity selection and structuring process, including corporate, tax, asset protection, risk management, succession and estate planning, and incentive compensation.

The business structuring process begins with understanding the client’s needs and objectives. Our attorneys then work to achieve the best possible combination of tax efficiency, asset protection, limited liability and risk management.

Our lawyers have provided business structuring services for clients that range from privately held start-ups to established public enterprises. Our experience includes business structures that integrate operating and holding companies; management and ownership structures that include multiple classes of equity; transaction structures involving affiliated entities; and governing documents that protect the ownership and value of the business.

Our interdisciplinary teams of lawyers enable Gunster to provide a cost effective, creative and multi-faceted analysis of the challenge at hand, as well as a client focused approach to problem solving.
