Nate Chooses a Business Entity
This case follows Nate Jamison as he determines which business entity to form for his growing City Moving Company (City Moving) in Washington, DC. From the start, Jamison operated City Moving as a sole proprietorship while he bootstrapped the business. Eventually he was able to get his own truck and hire two steady employees, and the three hope to formalize a business partnership to expand City Moving so that all three men can lead their own moving teams. To document the new ownership agreement, the partners know they need to properly register City Moving as a business entity. But which one would best fit City Moving's needs?
