Howland Hess acts as a general and special counsel to large and small business enterprises. For more than 50 years, our attorneys have been representing all types of business organizations, such as family-owned businesses, sole proprietorships, large non-profit corporations and privately held businesses. Clients range in size and scope from closely held businesses to multi-million dollar businesses. The firm is experienced in handling the day-to-day obstacles faced by individual entrepreneurs and business entities.
The firm is experienced in the areas of employee benefit planning, Partnerships, Limited Liability Companies, compensation issues, and Buy-Sell Agreements, to name a few.
Howland Hess can form your Subchapter S corporation, LLC or LLP within 48 hours, filing the organization papers in Harrisburg or Trenton. The firm will also apply for and obtain from the IRS your EIN. Howland Hess will also, if requested, schedule annual meetings of shareholders and directors, prepare the minutes of those meetings, etc.
In addition to providing expertise in business transactions, our attorneys work closely with clients, providing advice and counsel on the practical, day-to-day issues which arise in any business: employment and human resources issues, evaluation of risk and avoiding litigation.
We provide the expertise and efficiency normally associated with a larger firm, while our small-firm environment allows our attorneys to develop familiarity with individual clients and the needs of their business.
The firm's clients are primarily local and the issues and complexities of each client are dealt with the utmost attention from our staff and attorneys.
