Posted by on Sep 3, 2014 in Business Law | No Comments

Small businesses continue to sprout up around the U.S. and as large corporations downsize and decrease their staff, these smaller companies are experiencing growth, adding new jobs to the economy. It’s no wonder that small businesses are often referred to as the engines that drive the economy. But not all small businesses are successful – starting a business is not easy. However, with the proper resources, turning a passion to profit CAN be a reality.

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, there are 10 steps to starting a business. Many of these steps involve legal activities meant to offer protection for the business, the business owner(s) and their assets and are very important to the success of any newly formed company.

Will the business be a sole proprietorship, partnership, Limited Liability Company, or corporation? What contracts and operating agreements need to be in place to successfully run the business? What kind of insurance should the business carry to protect your investment and minimize the financial risks associated with owning and running a business? What permits are required to operate?

Unfortunately, unless backed by generous investors, small and medium-sized businesses traditionally do not have access to lawyers in big firms due to a hefty fee structure and other roadblocks. Oftentimes, this leads to important legal aspects falling to the back burner, left for a time when the business becomes profitable enough to cover the expense.
