Absolutely no, it is not necessary to hire a lawyer to form an LLC. Our company can form an LLC for you, saving you time and money that would be involved in the hiring a lawyer. Hiring a lawyer, however, can help you if you need direction about what type of business form you should choose.
Once a business formed as an LLC, it is issued certificates that indicate the particular holder’s percentage of ownership within the company.
The owners of LLC's are termed "members." The interests that a member of an LLC is represented by "interest" certificates. The members of LLC's are its managers, and each one has authority according to the percent of their ownership with the company (excepting when managers are hired by members to operate the business).
An S corporation has restrictions which are not the same as those of the LLC's. For instance, the number of shareholders is limited to 75 within the S corporations, while there is no restriction to the number of members that an LLC may have. Also, S corporations are owned by the shareholders and can issue stock, whereas LLC's cannot issue stock but offer “memberships” instead. Directors and officers manage S corporations; members entirely manage LLC's or hire managers to do so. Moreover, S corporations have a life span that is unlimited, while LLC's have a life that is limited (usually about 30 years).
