About Us


Virginia Formed Business is the trade name for the law firm of Brennan & Clary, P.L.C. The law firm is owned and operated by Matthew A. Brennan, III and Matthew Clary, both of whom are Virginia licensed business lawyers with collectively over 70 years of experience as lawyers.

Virginia Formed Business forms and documents Virginia corporations and Virginia limited liability companies. Our law firm provides all the documents you need to register your company with the Virginia State Corporation Commission.

Depending on the plan you choose, we either provide, or give instructions about, other basic documents necessary for starting a business in Virginia and provide Registered Agent services for the companies we form. Virginia Formed Business is a real law firm and, unlike many other incorporation sites, can give you legal advice you can rely upon.

Initially, the amount and kind of advice is limited to the formation of the entity you choose and does not include tax advice of any kind. But, if you want additional advice, we are available to provide those services under a separate agreement. If you engage our firm, you will deal with us rather than being referred to someone you know nothing about.

We provide competently drafted documents, the protection of dealing with a regulated professional firm, and insurance against legal malpractice, all of which will give you confidence and peace of mind and all for a reasonable price.
