A corporation is a legal entity created through the laws of its state of incorporation. Individual states have the power to promulgate laws relating to the creation, organization and dissolution of corporations. Many states follow the Model Business Corporation Act. (See Minnesota's adoption.) State corporation laws require articles of incorporation to document the corporation's creation and to provide provisions regarding the management of internal affairs. Most state corporation statutes also operate under the assumption that each corporation will adopt bylaws to define the rights and obligations of officers, persons and groups within its structure. States also have registration laws requiring corporations that incorporate in other states to request permission to do in-state business.

  • Choosing a Lawyer
  • Ask some very basic and important questions to the lawyer:
    After you have furnished the full details of your case to the lawyer you must some basic questions that can give you an insight into how the lawyer will proceed. Make it a point to ask how what course of action the lawyer will take regarding your case, how long he thinks the case will carry on, details about his fee and how he will inform you about the manner in which the case is proceeding. While asking these important questions always judge whether the lawyer is trying to hide facts/ give round about answers, or is open in the way he gives his answers. It is best to work with a lawyer whose replies you are comfortable with.

  • What you should ask in a contingency fee case:
    When discussing the lawyer's fee in contingency cases i.e. where the lawyer retains a portion of the compensation paid to the client, you must ask a number of important questions. Most importantly, what is the percentage of the fee the lawyer will take away. Always make it a point to ascertain the percentage on whether the case has been settled, goes to trial or goes to appeals court. The percentage could vary based upon the outcome of the case, so you must know what the lawyer will take away.
