Los Angeles Business Dissolution Attorneys

If your business is winding down, you must dissolve your corporation in order to stop paying future taxes and fees to the state of California. There are many issues that can lead to the dissolution of a company. Sometimes, the closing of a business can be a fairly straightforward procedure. In some cases of business dissolution, disputes arise and an experienced Los Angeles business attorney can be a key factor in achieving the best possible outcome in a timely manner.

If you are part of a business partnership or investor group in Los Angeles, or if you are a sole proprietor who is closing down a business, schedule a consultation with Boyd Law today. The business law attorneys at Boyd Law are knowledgeable with many years of experience helping people avoid legal and financial troubles that can result when partnerships dissolve, leaving debt, property ownership, disputes and contractual obligations on the table. Our attorneys will find the unique resolution you are looking for.

At Boyd Law we handle the most complex issues related to business divorce and partner dissolution including:

  • Professional practice dissolution or spin-off operations
  • Investor and shareholder disputes
  • Business partnership dissolution
  • Business debt collection services
  • Breach of contract litigation
  • Commercial real estate lease responsibilities
  • Property ownership disputes

Business entities registered with the California Secretary of State (SOS) can dissolve, surrender, or cancel their businesses in California as follows:

  • Domestic corporations (those originally incorporated in California) may legally dissolve.
  • Foreign corporations (those originally incorporated outside California) may legally surrender.
  • Limited liability companies and partnerships (both domestic and foreign) may legally cancel.

Businesses dissolve, surrender, or cancel when they are ceasing operations in California and need to terminate their legal existence here.

The consequences of a business dissolution can be severe. Owners face losing income, equity, and a business. In addition, the dissolution of a business partnership can lead to significantly adverse tax consequences.

The attorneys at Boyd Law are experienced in successfully guiding clients to prevent or minimize the loss of assets in the event of a business dissolution. Our attorneys work with clients engaged in general partnerships, limited partnerships, corporations and limited liability companies to protect their interests and minimize losses if they end a business relationship.
