United States Formations
Companies in the U.S. are formed at the State Level, and the formation documents are filed at the respective Secretary of States offices. The two Common Structures that companies choose to form are Limited Liability Companies (LLC) and Corporations (Inc.). Mostly all states offer other entity structures such a Non-Profit Corporations, Limited Partnerships, Limited Liability Partnerships, Professional Corporations, Benefit Corporations plus many more. It is important to note that the available structures will vary by the respective state offices.
We generally recommend that you form your entity in the state you are physically operating in. If your a Non-US Citizen, we recommend taking a look at why Delaware may be a good fit for you.
But how do you know what structure you should form? We think you should take a look at the advantages of LLC’s and Corporations by visiting our article that takes a look at the differences.
What about foreign qualifications?

From preparing and filing the Application of Authorities, obtain supporting documents such as good standings, and providing registered agent services in each state. our experienced team will complete your request in a timely, and cost effective manner.
But what about expanding overseas? Many international jurisdictions do allow for Branch Offices, which is an extension of the company in a foreign jurisdiction. The United States also allows for foreign entities to qualify into the country, to conduct business from their main company overseas.
Your attorney turns to you and says “I need you to form an entity in Ireland and I need you to do it quickly”. As a paralegal, you might say to yourself, “I have no idea how to do that!”. Or lets say your business partner says “We have an opportunity to land a big contract in Mexico, but we need to register our business first.” Where do you start? What do you do? But most importantly who can you turn to?
Well, luckily you found us and we’re here to help. We put our experience and resources to work for you!
Forming an entity in an international jurisdiction can be unfamiliar, very time consuming and very costly, especially when you don’t know where to start or even what to do. We have worked with local Counsels in many jurisdictions for years, so they are acutely aware of your needs and the demands of you and your clients. We understand tight filing deadlines and billing constraints and will work with you to meet your most compelling requirements.
