2023 may be the year that you decide to go ahead with your ambition and goal of launching a business. Here are some things to consider first.
First, you must have a sound business plan in place. Starting a business involves financial risk on your part. You must have the infrastructure that will set you up for success.
Before you start a business, you will need the legal documentation that is necessary to begin and run a company. You would need to choose the proper corporate form for your needs. Then, you would need to draft the paperwork, such as an operating agreement and corporate bylaws. If you are starting a business with others, you will need an agreement with them that defines your duties and how your arrangement will work.
You will also need to choose a business name and register your business. Before you select a name, you must search to see if that business name already exists. If you are relying on intellectual property for your business, you must move to protect it, so others do not take it from you.
An experienced attorney can work with you on the legal aspects of your business to help you get started off right. They can advise you on things like the choice of the best corporate form and reviewing any legal agreements. Then, they can partner with you as your business grows. One major milestone of growth that an attorney can help with is when you need to raise additional capital or sell shares in the business.
