FORM YOUR COMPANY

Spengler & Agans offers the best of both worlds: the efficiency of Legal Zoom with the personal touch of a local brick-and-mortar law firm (but without paying big firm dollars).

Here’s the easy 5-step process for forming your company in North Carolina with Spengler & Agans:

1. Select Your Startup Package

We offer startup package services on a competitive, flat-fee basis. The flat fee gives your new company certainty in budgeting—and keeps you from looking at the clock wondering about the extent of the damage of your final bill. We accept payment online by ACH check and credit card. (Pricing information available on next page.) As an added bonus, entrepreneurs who form their first company with Spengler & Agans also receive a 50% discount on all other legal services for the first year of the company’s existence.

2. Answer the Questionnaire

Tell us about your new company by completing the online questionnaire. Your answers will help us make sure your company is built on a sound legal foundation, tailored to your unique needs and preferences.

3. Attorney Consultation

Take advantage of the opportunity to sit down with business attorney Justin Agans for a comprehensive consultation on your company’s formation. Appointments with Justin can be scheduled online at the end of the questionnaire. Most client prefer to meet at our law offices, but phone and Skype consultations are also available. Justin will confirm key aspects of the decisions you’ve made in the questionnaire, help you understand the formation documents, and answer any questions you may have. Legal and business considerations often intersect, and Justin will discuss what your company can expect over time—what we like to call the “Startup Timeline.”

4. Review Draft Documents

Within one to two business days of meeting with Justin, you will receive draft formation documents to review. We use the information received through the questionnaire (and in your meeting with Justin) to draft customized documents for your company. You’ll have the opportunity to ask Justin any additional questions you may have about the formation documents—we encourage you to call or email us. All of the attorney consultation time is built into the flat fee.

5. Sign the Final Documents

After you approve the draft documents, we will send copies of final documents for your signature. For your convenience, the documents can be signed electronically, saving you a trip into our office. In order to finalize your documents, the N.C. Secretary of State must first return a copy of your company’s Articles of Organization. The processing time is outside of our firm’s control and can take up to 2-3 weeks. If you are in a hurry, you may want to consider paying for expedited processing, a service offered by the Secretary of State for an additional $100.

We look forward to helping you get your new company off to a great start.
