When you make the bold decision to start a new venture, your head is likely flooded with ideas for prosperity and success.  In addition to procuring office space, equipment and personnel, there are important items for consideration.  Learn what every start-up needs to know when going into business.

Start-up Considerations

It takes a good idea and determination to get a start-up working in full force.  Obviously, it takes time and financing to really make things happen.  Here are some other important parts of the puzzle:

  • Solve a Problem:  Does your business address a problem that needs to be solved?  Are you offering professional services such as accounting or physical therapy?

  • Product Need:  Are you selling a product that has sales appeal?  How will you market it?

  • Client Base: Are you starting fresh?  Are you taking over someone else’s practice?  Is there a need for the product you have developed?

  • Competition: Is the market already flooded?  Will you be able to withstand the competition?

Legal Advice is Crucial

You will hear the terms “LLC” and incorporation tossed around as prospective means of circumventing personal responsibility.  You may even choose to hop on the internet and do a quick search for forms.  We offer a cautionary note.  Although the World Wide Web is a valuable resource, it cannot replace experienced legal advice.

An interesting Forbes article discusses the reasons business owners need to retain a business attorney who can address their needs.  Here are our thoughts concerning the value of counsel:

  • Business formation:  You may have your own ideas concerning the type of entity you think best suits your business model.  An attorney will evaluate your plan and file the appropriate forms to ensure that your company is set up properly.

  • Knowledge of the law: The business world is filled with a variety of laws applicable to different kinds of industry.  An experienced transactional lawyer will be over to go over regulations that might have bearing on the way you conduct business.

  • Liability: Is it necessary for you to carry insurance for your venture?  What happens if someone sues you?

  • Contracts: Will your business require completion of contracts?   Any contract should be subject to attorney review.

  • Personnel: If your company plans to hire staff, you are subject to certain legal requirements.  Do you know them?
