Start a Washington State LLC

Create a Solid Foundation for Business Partners

Going into business with a new partner can be daunting, even among best friends. You know that having a contract between partners is critical, but you may not know where to start. No one feels great about a generic online form, which can have missing or bad terms, but sometimes it’s the only affordable option. Engaging a law firm can be time consuming and costly.


This is why we created the LLC Builder. You can now get both the efficiency and lower cost of an online self-service tool combined with the advice of an experienced local law firm. The LLC Builder guides you through our tested process so that you and your partners can agree on key terms of the business relationship and then draft a custom LLC operating agreement.


The LLC Builder is great for Washington-based businesses with 2+ owners in just about any industry. Whether you are starting fresh or trying to get organized as you grow, our process can help.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is An LLC Right For My Business?

LLCs are a great choice for many types of businesses. The flexible structure and ease of operating makes the LLC particularly good for individual business owners, small teams, and service providers. You may have already decided that you will be doing business through an LLC or you may have an LLC in business now. If not, and you want to discuss with one of our attorneys, you can schedule a quick chat to explore whether an LLC is right for you.

Are Other Online Form Operating Agreements Good Enough?

While online legal products have given many businesses some access to legal services, unfortunately many if not all online form operating agreements do not address critical issues or the particulars of a given team, product, or service. We at Foundry Law Group know this because we see a lot of them. An operating agreement is central to sustained and stable growth so it is critical to have in place an operating agreement tailored to your business.


What Are the Benefits of the LLC Builder?

What Can I Expect Using the LLC Builder?

After registration and payment, you will answer questions about what you envison for your business with regard to key business terms. After submitting your answers, our team will share with you an LLC term sheet so that you can succintly review critical points (and discuss with your team). Once you approve of the terms, our team will draft a custom operating agreement for your LLC tailored to your desired management structure, business needs, and plans for growth. We will then circulate your LLC documents for signature with the team. If needed, we will also file to form your LLC in Washington State. Foundry Law Group will serve as the initial registered agent in the State of Washington for the LLC to receive formal correspondence for the business. Please see our services table for more information about costs what's included with the LLC Builder.


What Critical LLC Terms Are Covered?

The LLC Builder focuses on five main categories of terms important to businesses. With the LLC Builder, you decide on terms regarding ownership, management, conflict, owner departure, and extraneous circumstances.


Is the LLC Builder Fully Automated?
