When one is contemplating starting a new business, they have many important legal questions to consider. First, one must determine the appropriate legal form for their business. Would it be most beneficial to set up a sole proprietorship, a partnership, a limited partnership, a limited liability company, or a corporation? A business owner must also consider how the new business can ensure its rights are protected when engaging in business deals? One should also consider how to best limit the liability of their business to the fullest extent possible? How does the emergent business make certain they are complying with state and federal laws and regulations? A new business needs a skilled and experienced business lawyer to answer these questions and make certain the interests of the new business are protected.
