Start Your Business the Right Way

Professional Advice and Experienced Representation in Bel Air, Maryland


The formation of a new business can be an exciting process and, for many small business owners, it can be the realization of a lifelong dream. While starting your business, however, you will have important decisions to make that will affect both the present and future of your business. By working with an experienced lawyer who has spent more than a decade counseling small business owners, you can make informed, responsible choices that are in your best interest.


At Henninger & Henninger, LLC, we provide advice, counsel and representation for clients who are dealing with the formation of their small business. This includes advice on personal and business tax consequences, liability issues, property purchases, lease negotiations, business planning and the selection of a business entity. We will also work in cooperation with our clients’ accountants and other financial advisors to achieve a comprehensive and coordinated plan for business success.


Dedicated Small Business Formation Attorney

One of the first and most important choices you can make regarding your business formation is the selection of a business entity. The correct entity can impact your liability and tax consequences and can make a big difference in meeting your business and personal needs. At Henninger & Henninger, LLC, we work with your accountant and other financial advisors to assist you in choosing the right entity for you, including the following:

  • Sole proprietorship
  • Partnership
  • Limited liability company (LLC)
  • Limited liability partnership (LLP)
  • S-corporation
  • C-corporation

If you are purchasing a business, or are purchasing or leasing business property, we can also assist you in protecting your rights and making sure that you are getting what you pay for. Our firm will assist you with due diligence, help you manage risks, and plan for the problems that can arise during a transaction or after the transaction is completed. Attorney Laura Henninger is a licensed CPA and understands many of the complex financial, management, and logistical issues that can arise in these situations.


Once your business is established, you may need additional assistance such as contract or lease preparation or review, preparation of minutes of annual stockholder meetings, establishment of an incentive compensation plan or retirement plan, and contracts with other individuals or businesses. Laura Henninger will work with you to establish contractual arrangements that help you enhance your business and achieve your goals.
