Start­ing a busi­ness — become an entre­peneur

Start­ing a busi­ness involves plan­ning, mak­ing key finan­cial deci­sions, and com­plet­ing a series of legal activ­i­ties. Thus estab­lish­ing your own com­pany and become self-​​employed might take a long time.

There are mul­ti­ple steps involved in the process of incor­po­rat­ing a busi­ness. Some of these steps are listed below, but all are best han­dled by an expe­ri­enced busi­ness lawyer:

  1. Writ­ing a busi­ness plan
  2. Fund­ing the busi­ness
  3. Approval of the com­pany name
  4. Choos­ing a busi­ness struc­ture
  5. Pro­tect­ing the per­sonal assets (No mat­ter what struc­ture turns out to be best for a busi­ness, it’s essen­tial to struc­ture it in a way that lim­its the per­sonal lia­bil­ity and pro­tects the non-​​business assets)
  6. Reg­is­ter a busi­ness
  7. Estab­lish­ing Own­er­ship Respon­si­bil­i­ties
  8. Cre­at­ing Inter­nal Bylaws
  9. Cre­at­ing Ven­dor Con­tracts
  10. Nav­i­gat­ing Tax Issues

In our days, found­ing a startup is a lot of work and the founder of a com­pany is con­fronted with a num­ber of uncer­tain­ties, risks, and chal­lenges. We will be pleased to advise you in all aspects. We have years of expe­ri­ence deal­ing with star­tups and would like to help you build a thriv­ing busi­ness and ensure that your inter­ests are pro­tected through well-​​drafted con­tracts and intel­lec­tual prop­erty fil­ings.

With us, your dream of self-​​employment comes true!
