The selection of the proper form of business entity requires a careful balancing of tax and nontax considerations. In most cases, the choice will be made from among the following alternatives:

1.A sole proprietorship, which is relevant only in situations where there is to be a single owner of the business, but this form provides no liability protection;

2.General and limited partnerships;

3.Limited liability companies (“LLCs”); or

4.A Corporation – i.e., various corporate forms, including general business or “close” corporations

Annual Business Entity Maintenance Program

Your time is a valuable commodity. You could answer all the incoming calls. You could do your own accounting. You could book your own travel.  But, you don’t. You hired a receptionist. You have a bookkeeper. You have an assistant. You make high-level decisions and delegate the rest.

Maintaining your own corporations and LLCs is one way to theoretically save a few hundred dollars per year. The problem is you’re busy. You have employees to manage, customers to keep happy and money to make. Time taken to renew your entities is time taken away from higher-level tasks. Because you’re busy, it’s easy to let the registration of your corporation or LLC lapse. If you enroll your entity(ies) in our Entity Maintenance Program (EMP), you can eliminate that risk entirely. The liability shield of the corporation/LLC (also known as the corporate veil) will be secure which protects your personal assets from your business liabilities. Be your own highest and best use and leave the entity maintenance to us.

Business Succession Planning

Kehr Business Law provides businesses with a single resource to address the wide variety of business and legal concerns present at every stage of business operation. We help clients create, grow, acquire, manage and protect their assets. We provide our clients with a well-rounded and cost-effective approach to business succession planning.

Why do succession planning?

To prevent insiders who retire or are no longer active in the business from continuing to hold shares; to provide continuing ownership and control in the remaining shareholders; to prevent shareholders from selling to other shareholders so as to disturb existing control/financial allocations; to provide an assured market for the shares (and thus, liquidity) on a shareholder’s death, retirement or withdrawal from the corporation; and to establish the shares’ value for federal estate tax and gift tax purposes. san diego business attorney corporation or llc

What is a Buy-Sell Agreement?

Buy-Sell Agreements are by and between the shareholders (or equity partners of whatever legal description) of a privately-owned business and, perhaps, the business itself that establish the mechanism for the purchase of stock following the death (or other adverse changes) of one of the owners. In the case of corporate joint ventures, they also establish the value for break-ups or for circumstances calling for one corporate venture partner to buy out the other partner.

“I have worked with many attorneys before for personal and professional matters…all of which fall short of the standard Dan Kehr sets for the industry. Dan is incredibly well-versed, and trustworthy. I offer my highest recommendation for his services. – Craig S.”


It has been an absolute pleasure working with his firm. More specifically with Dan Kehr who was instrumental in assisting us in drafting a purchase and sale agreement (PSA) for an important project of ours. Dan was extremely proactive and professional in his assessment of what we were needing to get accomplished. He provided expert recommendations on key issues and verbiage within the PSA, his transparency and honesty throughout the whole process was exceptional, as well as, his acute attention to detail and quality of work provided. Dan went above and beyond the normal call of duty to help us with this massive undertaking which we are extremely thankful for. We look forward to using Dan and his firm again in the future. – JR Skala"

“Dan is an intelligent attorney who really knows his stuff. Most importantly to me, it’s clear that he really cares about people in general and wants to help. This is why I would recommend Dan Kehr to anyone who needs an attorney regarding business, real estate, or Trusts. – Derrick E.”

“Ever since teaming up with Dan Kehr there has not been one issue that has come up in my small business that he has not been able to help me with. With a great personality and positive attitude, you will be actually somewhat happy to go see your lawyer! – Trent F.”

“My wife and I recently met with Dan Kehr regarding our estate. We had some concerns about our trust since it was completed over 10 years ago. Dan advised us about changes in the law as well as changes within our family that would require the trust to be updated. The items within the old trust were important to us then, but things certainly change in 10 years which required attention. Dan and his staff listened attentively to our new concerns, brought up issues that we had not considered and provided sound advice. I would highly recommend The Kehr Business Law Group for your estate planning needs. – Hal W.”

“Dan Kehr is one of the most meticulous attorney’s in San Diego. His focus is on his client’s needs. His many years of experience along with his wisdom brought me success with a recent issue regarding copy wright infringement. I shopped for an Entertainment Attorney for a few months from San Diego to Los Angeles. It was a blessing to find Dan and Kehr Business Law as I was able to handle matters in my home town instead of driving to Los Angeles. Dan really took his time with my case. He and the entire staff made me feel confident that I was getting the best service possible. I would recommend Dan and Kehr Business Law to anyone who has assets they would like to protect. – Eve G.”

“Dan has helped me tremendously getting my LLC up and running. I can always go to him with any business question I need, and he will have an answer. He’s very easy to talk to. Not only does he have a great legal team, he also has other people that can assist you with other aspects of your business such as accounting and bookkeeping. Quinn R.”
