    At the Serrano Law Firm, we admire the spirit and resourcefulness of individuals who go into business for themselves.  For two decades, we have used our experience and skill to help clients set up corporations and limited liability companies (LLC's), and to obtain the licenses and financing required for their businesses, such as liquor permits, car dealers and repairers licenses, and livery licenses.  We have watched with pride as our clients' businesses have flourished, allowing them to provide comfortable lives for their families and to become recognized in the community.

    We stand ready to protect our business clients.  Using our experience and skill as negotiators and trial lawyers, we have successfully represented clients in state and federal court contract actions and other litigation.  We have also successfully defended our clients in regulatory actions before government agencies.


    We offer these services for our business clients:



Limited Liability Companies (LLC's).  A properly set up LLC separates a business owner's personal finances from his or her business finances.  An LLC can protect personal assets from creditor or liability claims.  LLC's are simpler to set up and maintain than corporations and have been available in Connecticut since 1993.  Recent legislation allows an LLC to be set up by just one person.  We have the experience and skill to tailor an LLC to meet the needs of each individual company.



Corporations.  A corporation that has been properly organized and remains in good standing protects personal assets from creditor or liability claims.  Prior to the 1993 legislation that allowed LLC's to be formed in Connecticut, most small business owners incorporated as Subchapter S corporations.  In many instances, the corporate format is the best choice for a business as it allows a division to be made between ownership, supervision and day-to-day operations.  At least two persons are required to form and maintain a corporation.  Our many years of helping corporate clients allows us to provide astute advice to individuals who are considering incorporating a business.



Licensing.  Many businesses require special governmental licenses and certificates.  This is particularly true of businesses that deal directly with the public, such as restaurants, liquor stores, automotive repair shops, and home improvement companies.  We have the skill and experience to help our business clients obtain and keep the licenses they need to successfully operate their businesses.



Small Business Administration (SBA) Loans.  The federal government helps provide financing for businesses through the Small Business Administration Program.  While the SBA can provide loans with favorable terms, the SBA application process can be complex and difficult.  We have guided clients through each step of the process, from filing the initial application to closing the loan.



Litigation.  Businesses often become involved in litigation.  Contracts are breached, representations are made that turn out to be false, deals fall through.  As trial lawyers, we have the skill and determination to obtain the best possible outcome for our clients, whether it be negotiating a favorable settlement or trying cases in the courts.
