Reserve a name for your company

The first step in opening a new company is to reserve a name. A corporate lawyer can help you review the existing companies to determine if the chosen or similar names have already been taken. If the lawyer determines that the Registrar will not approve the chosen names, they will ask you to come up with other names. Therefore saving you some time and money.

Determine a share structure

A corporate lawyer, working in conjunction with your accountant, can assist you in determining which type of share structure is most suitable for your business. You may need to issue shares to your company's investors and create different classes of shares, for example, with the right to vote and without or with the right to receive dividends. This type of operation often requires a lawyer’s insight.

Post-incorporation documents and paperwork

Determining a list of every document you need can take time and effort. Using a corporate lawyer can ease the process of figuring out what paperwork is required to incorporate a business.


The list of documents usually consists of the Certificate of Incorporation, Articles of Incorporation and the Company’s Minute Book. While depending on your particular situation, there will also be other documents.
