BlumbergExcelsior Introduces Online New York LLC Formation Service

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 26, 2006 -- BlumbergExcelsior, a leading provider of corporate services, has introduced a new online application that enables users to organize a New York Limited Liability Company (LLC) easily. The application questionnaire walks users through the organization process in just a few minutes and creates a basic or single member custom-tailored operating agreement. Most competing services go no further than providing blank forms for an operating agreement. The Blumberg application provides a free customized operating agreement so the LLC record book is up-to-date from the start. Blumberg's experienced corporate service representatives review the documents, check name availability and file the LLC. Blumberg's online LLC formation service complies with the June 1, 2006 statutory revisions.

At $485.50 Blumberg's New York Online LLC Service offers expedited service at substantial savings. In addition to the free customized operating agreement the cost includes document preparation, filing, expedited service disbursements, publication assignment and filing affidavits of publication. Blumberg's Black Beauty LLC kit, complete with seal, operating agreement and units of membership interest certificates, is also included. Representative or percent certificates are substituted for units of membership interest certificates on request. Blumberg ships the LLC kit free.

For new LLC's New York law requires publication in two newspapers for six consecutive weeks. The 2006 amendments provide that an LLC will be suspended if it does not comply with the publication requirement within 120 days of formation. LLC's formed after January 1, 1999, which have not advertised, must comply or be suspended. The cost to advertise the LLC information is not included in the $485.50 since publication costs vary from county to county and depend upon which newspapers the county clerk assigns. Costs range between $200 and $2,500. Blumberg Corporate Services will provide an estimate upon request.

In addition to providing expert service to form LLC's, BlumbergExcelsior offers services to handle the details of advertising new LLC's and non-compliant LLC's. Placing legal notices and ads can be burdensome for law offices that form LLC's for clients. In New York, however, it is more important than ever to fulfill the publication requirement to avoid suspension of LLC's and to protect clients' limited liability benefits. Blumberg obtains the newspaper assignment, drafts and places the ads, obtains the Affidavit of Publication from the publisher, prepares the Certificate of Publication for the LLC to sign and files both with the Secretary of State. Blumberg's fee for publication preparation and filing is only $100 for both new and non-compliant LLC's.

The new online LLC service for New York is Blumberg's latest addition to its legal application service provider offerings that enable lawyers to perform more of their practice online without buying expensive software. It joins Blumberg's New York Incorporation Online Service and Annual Corporate Representation Service. The online incorporation services create a custom-tailored set of Minutes and By-laws containing information from an online incorporating questionnaire. New York Incorporation Online costs $284 and includes expedited service, disbursements of $160 and a Black Beauty Corporate Kit. Annual Corporate Representation Service enables lawyers to create annual and succeeding minutes for a corporation in any state assuring that the corporation remains in compliance with laws requiring minutes preserving shareholders' limited liability. The service also provides an annual legal checkup which uncovers additional legal needs of corporate clients and opportunities to provide valuable billable services to meet those needs. Blumberg's experienced corporate service representatives also provide complete expedited incorporation services and LLC formation services for all states.
