Company executives who launch a subsidiary organization as well as entrepreneurs looking to market a new product line through a start-up business need experienced and reliable business formation lawyers to assist them in careful planning of their new business’ needs and goals. Every new launch must consider the type of business to be formed, income tax issues, exposure to liability and financing. In fact, the first decision anyone faces when they start a business venture is whether they want to operate the business within a limited liability entity such as a Georgia corporation or LLC. Most people do. If you don’t, you will have unlimited personal liability for the negligence or mistakes of your business.
At Cobb Law Group, our business law attorneys will guide you through the advantages and disadvantages of the different types of business entities available to Georgia businesses, and we’ll ensure that your business is secured by a solid legal foundation for years to come. Furthermore, if you wish, our business lawyers will continue to work with your new company, serving as your legal resource and counsel for other matters that may arise as you enter and pursue dominance in our global marketplace. Our services include registering your business with the various taxing authorities and ensuring your business is registered and qualified to do business in Georgia each year. We can get you started and keep you going!

We are not general practitioners; instead, we focus our practice towards those in the construction industry. Our firm represents clients in all Georgia state and federal courts in the preparation and filing of mechanics’ liens; perfecting, enforcing and foreclosing upon materialmen’s liens; making claims against payment & surety bonds, and all aspects of construction litigation related to materialmen’s liens and payment bond enforcement.
Our services are available throughout the State of Georgia, and we offer several different options based upon your needs. For those who know the type of entity they wish to form, those who need only basic entity formation, and for those who are willing to do some of the legal work themselves, the Cobb Law Group is please to offer the current Georgia business formation forms through its Georgia Business Law Virtual Law Firm at a steeply discounted rate and from the convenience of your computer. For those requiring more complex representation, we provide experienced business lawyers and paralegals at fair hourly rates who can advice, educate, and help you with every step.

Let Us Serve As Your Registered Agent:
Every registered business entity in the State of Georgia is required to name a Registered Agent for the purpose of accepting legal service of process. Often overlooked in selecting a Registered Agent is the jurisdictional aspects–the company’s legal jurisdiction is the Georgia county in which its Registered Agent is located as this is where a lawsuit against your business will be tried. Some counties have a reputation for being “friendly” to business and others are not. The Cobb Law Group offers two offices in Georgia from which to choose your legal jurisdiction–Forsyth County, Georgia in north metropolitan Atlanta and Thomas County, Georgia in south Georgia. Both of these counties are considered “business friendly”, and our services are an affordable way to have your lawsuits handled in a potentially better setting and to promptly receive your legal service of process.

Our firm employs a certified public accountant and has acted as an interim chief financial officer for start-up businesses.
