At its fundamental level, business law includes analyzing a new or growing business to determine whether its organizational structure is optimal, and refine it if necessary. For example, corporations of various types offer protection to the corporate officers that do not exist for a sole proprietor. There are different corporate models, however, and each has its advantages and disadvantages, depending on the purpose and goals of a given business organization. These include:
- S-Corporation (a closely-held, often single-family business)
- C-Corporation (generally, publicly-held corporations)
- Limited Liability Company (LLC) and Professional Limited Liability Company (PLLC)
- Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)
- General Partnership
