The United States and Michigan constitutions guarantee our rights to free speech and to petition the government for the redress of grievances. During the past week, we have seen graphic and contrasting examples of these rights in action. The federal and state constitutions protect both examples equally. However, one would hope to hear less of the local speech and would also hope that the national example would have a positive influence upon the nature of political discourse in this country and state.
As a business and tax attorney I am frequently asked by clients whether a corporation or an LLC is a better entity for their new business. My response is that each entity has certain advantages and a review of the intended use for the new business and the goals of the owners/investors must be made before that question can be definitively answered.
