California Start Up Law Firm

Who benefits from a California business start-up lawyer’s services? Ask yourself: Are you thinking of starting up a new business? If so, you are making a decision to become part of the entrepreneurial spirit that has defined American business for generations. Part of any start-up plan involves making sure you have the essentials covered:

  • A solid business plan or model;
  • Sufficient capital and investors to make your business work;
  • The support of family and friends who can help you along the way.

Is anything missing? Yes – do not forget to consult with your California business start-up lawyer.

“I Don’t Need a Business Start-Up Law Firm . . . Do I?” 

In times past an entrepreneur could simply think and manufacture a product or devise a service and immediately try to sell the product or service to the masses. While theoretically this is still possible – you can still invent your own gadget or develop skills in picture-hanging and go door-to-door – this is not usually a wise business strategy.

You want your business to succeed. You want your time and investment to pay off. For these reasons you need the help of a business start-up lawyer.

“What Can a Business Start-Up Lawyer Do for Me?” 

An experienced California business start-up law firm is an essential player on your start-up team. These attorneys are knowledgeable about business-specific laws and regulations and their advice and legal counsel can keep you from making costly mistakes. For instance, your California business start-up lawyer can:

  • Discuss with you the different types of business entities and how each one may or may not be suited to your business plans;
  • Draft articles of incorporation and bylaws to govern your new business;
  • Prepare necessary pre-launch contracts with investors, suppliers, and other important individuals necessary to the success of your business;
  • Help you complete the necessary paperwork to properly register your business;
  • Advise you on important actions that your new business must undertake quickly, either before or after formation;
  • Inform you of applicable labor laws and how they may impact your business if you choose to hire employees;
  • Create employment contracts necessary to govern your employees;
  • Other services and legal counsel.

Make no mistake – a business start-up lawyer is no mere talking head spouting advice. Business start-up attorneys are ready to go to court or into alternative dispute resolution settings to protect your legal rights as well.
