As a corporate lawyer in Miami, Florida, I have assisted numerous foreign companies and individuals in initiating and operating businesses in the United States. One of the critical areas where guidance is crucial pertains to forming a corporation in the United States. If you are a foreign company or individual planning to venture into business in the United States, here are 10 things you need to know about U.S. corporations:
 

Types of Corporations: Businesses can be formed as C corporations or S corporations, each with distinct legal benefits and obligations.
 

Incorporation: To establish a corporation in the United States, a company must file Articles of Incorporation in the state where they intend to operate.
 

Shareholders: Corporations have shareholders who hold shares in the company and possess voting rights and participation in profits.
 

Directors and Officers: Corporations have a board of directors overseeing company management and an executive team handling day-to-day
operations.
 

Bylaws: Corporations are required to have bylaws that outline rules and regulations for company management.
 

Disclosure Obligations: Corporations must provide financial reports and other disclosures to regulatory authorities, including the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
 

Liability: Corporations and their directors and officers can be held accountable for violations of securities laws, fraud, and other unlawful actions.
 

Mergers and Acquisitions: Companies can merge or acquire other businesses to expand operations and acquire assets.
 

Minority Shareholders' Rights: Minority shareholders have specific legal rights to safeguard their interests and prevent abuse of power by majority shareholders.
 

Dissolution: Companies can be dissolved voluntarily or by regulatory authorities in case of non-compliance with laws and regulations.
