Business Entities & Business Organizations - LibGuide Purpose

Business Law embraces many branches of the law that involve the operation of a business, from its start-up to its dissolution. This LibGuide will focus solely on business entities or organizations and the resources that those researching business law topics will encounter in future practice.


In its nascent or beginning stages, " law involves the selection of a business entity, whether sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability corporation (LLC); or corporation or S-corporation.  The primary aim of this process is to shield its owners from individual liability.  This will involve filing necessary documents with the Secretary of State of the state in which the business is organized, as well as the city or town in which the business is situated.  Businesses that are expected to collect sales tax must also register with state taxing authorities."
