- earnings of an LLC are taxed only once
- earnings of an LLC are treated like earnings from a partnership, sole proprietorship & most S corporations
- an LLC owner’s liability is generally limited to the amount of $$$ which the person has invested in the LLC
- LLC members are offered the same limited liability protection as corporation’s shareholders
- LLCs are generally free to establish any organizational structures agreed upon by the members
- profit interests may be separated from voting interests
LLCs are very common with sellers. I think the main reason is that you’re not personally liable for a company’s liabilities. They're also much easier to establish and maintain compared to corporations. So this enables small businesses to gain limited protection similar to a corporation, but without the cost and complexity that corporations bring. Under a Limited Liability Company, you're not required to file a separate tax return for your business.

Whether you’re starting a new business or looking for help with an already-established venture, we are here to provide traditional legal services for your business.
With decades of experience drafting agreements on a myriad of subjects and fields, we are confident we can prepare an agreement for your needs; whether it’s a partnership agreement, shareholder agreement, operating agreement, or other type of business agreement.
A partnership agreement is a contract between two or more individuals who operate a business for profit. We prepare detailed partnership agreements to ensure the terms are tailored to your specific business needs.
An operating agreement is arguably the most important document for owners of an LLC. It outlines the process by which the LLC operates within its rules and guidelines on its daily basis of operation. The operating agreement is specific to the LLC and the specific needs of its members and is binding to its terms. Whether or not it is required in your state, every LLC should have an operating agreement.
Shareholder agreements are made between owners of a corporation. This document serves as a safety net, that details the steps taken if a shareholder leaves the company, as well as outlines the percentage of ownership, restrictions on shares, and rights to purchase shares among many other criteria.
Our experienced attorneys know the importance of vocalizing the wants and needs of both parties at this step of a contract.
Contract Drafting & Reviewing
Drafting a contract is at the forefront of almost every legal interaction; no matter what type of claim you have, chances are, some sort of contract was signed. To draft a viable contract, an offer must be made, the offer must be accepted, and consideration must be exchanged by both parties. Once these steps are fulfilled, the terms of the contract are to be included. It is very common for a contract to be exchanged and drafted multiple times, as the parties vocalize what is important on each side.
We pride ourselves in our ability to make sure that your concerns are met and negotiated into the final contract.
Contract Negotiation & Disputes
Negotiation of a contract is within the basic repertoire of all attorneys but we have a unique perspective, as the majority of our clients are Amazon sellers. Once a contract is created through an offer, acceptance of the offer, and the exchange of consideration between the parties, then the terms negotiated, the protection and enforcement of said contract becomes the most important step. When a breach occurs, whether its minor, material, or anticipatory, you may be eligible to collect damages. We are here to help.

Rosenbaum Famularo, PC is well-versed in these types of contracts and we are confident we can assist you.
Non-disclosure agreements describe information/material that is sensitive, and therefore protected under said contract. The purpose is to keep proprietary information from being stolen/used by others.

The last victory was with a case with Empire Flippers, who are one of the biggest online business brokers in the world. They hired us when their Amazon Associates account was suspended.
