Tampa Entity Governance & Business Advice Lawyer
In order to maintain the privileges and advantages that are often associated with the various types of entitles—partnerships, corporations, limited liability companies, etc.—a business entity must conduct its business consistent with the laws under which it was formed. Depending on the type of entity, this may mean the creation of corporate bylaws and/or operating agreements, the election of a board of directors, the issuance of stock or membership interests, the facilitation of annual meetings of managers, directors, members, and/or shareholders, and the following of various other corporate formalities necessary to maintain the privileges and advantages that come with these forms of corporate structure.
