In an article published in the February 2019 issue of Intellectual Property Magazine, Chamberlain Hrdlicka shareholders Aly Dossa and Phyllis Guillory discuss how new tax laws provided by the TCJA have changed how IP-generating start-ups may structure their business for U.S. tax purposes. Overall, the 2017 Act provided start-ups with substantially more structuring options to consider. Dossa and Guillory provide insight on two major considerations for start-ups: whether to use an LLC or a C corporation structure, and whether the IP generated by a start-up will be used by non-U.S. customers.
