October 4, 2011: Download advice on forming an LLC

As small business owners, editorial specialists can be vulnerable to various legal issues. Forming an LLC affords freelancers an added layer of protection beyond sole proprietorship. At the July meeting of the Arizona chapter, Mr. Matthew Thrasher, Of Counsel for Farhang and Medcoff, PLLC, spoke about the process of forming an LLC and how it can save you both money and hassle.

Matthew Thrasher has handled corporate, finance, real estate, and general business matters for clients in a broad array of industries, from publicly traded corporations to local start-ups. He publishes the Arizona Corporate Law Blog, which analyzes state and federal legal developments in the areas of corporate, securities, real estate, and finance.
