Business Law

Why need a lawyer when starting a business?

The primary legal concern of most persons who are starting a business, or who have already started a business, is personal liability for the obligations of the business. Personal liability means that your personal assets may be sold by a court to pay legal obligations of the business. We can assist you in creating a legal structure for your business which will limit your personal liability for the debts and other obligations of your business enterprise. Some legal business structures also have features which can be used to reduce taxes on your estate after your death. Our experience in business transactions has allowed us to gain practical knowledge in addition to our legal knowledge, which may be helpful to you in making the important initial decisions related to starting your business.
