Business ventures operate under many forms, and Butzel's Business Planning practice advises and implements the most suitable structure for clients operations and business goals. Our team can assist with the structuring, restructuring, and liquidating of corporate and non-corporate entities. We represent both small, closely-held corporations and large, privately- and publicly-held companies.

Clients desiring to structure their investment and business activities with pass-through entities such as partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), or joint ventures can depend on us. We advise and implement the most suitable structure by analyzing the choice of entity, taxation implications, liability, governance, and antitrust issues that often arise in business formations.

Our Business Planning practice team is actively involved in American Bar Association (ABA), state, and local committees and subcommittees that draft new corporate statutes. Our attorneys have written and lectured extensively on corporate topics.
