Setting Up Your Business Correctly the First Time

Like any other business, professionals who hold licenses issued by the State of California require competent business advice to understand asset protection, exit-planning strategies and how to effectively run their business. Mayfield Bustarde, LLP provides general counsel services to professionals, including advice on employment matters, trademark and copyright issues, disputes with clients, vendors or competitors and contract review and interpretation. In the event that a dispute cannot be resolved, we can also represent your business in the lawsuit.

Helping Businesses In San Diego

At Mayfield Bustarde, LLP, we represent a variety of business professionals, including

  • Doctors/Physicians/M.D.'s
  • CPA's/Accountants
  • Architects
  • Landscape Architects
  • Attorneys/Law Firms
  • Veterinarians
  • Realtors
  • Dentists
  • Chiropractors

Some of these professions, if incorporated, are required to have a Professional Corporation, which has restrictions on who can be owners/stockholders, officers and directors. All of these professions may need an entity to provide asset protection to its owners, and many of these professions cannot form an LLC. There are several entity options for professionals, depending on the type of profession, including corporations, LLCs, LLP's and general partnerships.

Some professional corporations, such as medical corporations and law corporations, need permission from the respective licensing agency before it can operate or before it can operate under any name other than the licensed professional's legal name.

Mayfield Bustarde, LLP can help professionals select the best type of entity to provide protection for its owners, set up a buy-out plan if there are multiple owners and set up master contracts for the professional to use with his or her clients.
