Ardour needs a business/tax lawyer

No worries folks - it’s not an emergency.

It is finally time to get ardour.org organized as a limited liability corporation (LLC) rather than a sole proprietorship. Not because we face liability issues, but mostly because of taxes and other mundane matters.

Where I (Paul) live, near Santa Fe, NM, it has not proven easy to find a lawyer who seems appropriate to provide advice on this process (given ardour.org’s particular circumstances). Ideally, I’d like to find someone within New Mexico, but my understanding is that in general most of the relevant legal issues here are either pretty consistent across US states, or a federal matter, so that a good lawyer pretty much anywhere in the US could likely help out.

If you are, or if you know someone who has relevant experience and would be willing to provide advice/guidance/services, please ask them to get in touch with via email (paul@linuxaudiosystems.com). I’m not looking for pro bono service - fully expecting to pay market rates.
