Business Formation With The Help Of An Experienced Attorney
If you have a great idea, a valuable service or a quality product to sell, you are well on your way to starting a business. Unfortunately, though, there is still a lot of work and planning to be done, and much of it can be complicated and confusing when trying to navigate it by yourself.
For these and many other reasons, you should seek the help of a business law attorney at the beginning of the process. I am Alan Fister, and I have more than 30 years of helping entrepreneurs at all stages of their business, from startup to growth to the eventual sale of the entity.
Business Formation Services
There are many important start up decisions to be made and protections to be put in place, and the best time to implement them is during the formation of the business. These include:
Choosing a business structure: What kind of business entity makes the most sense for you? Do you want to limit your personal liability? Or simplify business taxes? Are you starting the business with a partner or a group of partners? Every business structure has advantages and disadvantages, and I will help you choose the type of entity that best meets your needs and goals.
Drafting and filing documents: This is the formal act of business planning. It includes drafting organizing documents. You may also need to register your business with the state of Tennessee. I will guide you through all necessary documentation and paperwork and ensure that nothing is overlooked. It is important to get the business formation right on the front end, so as to avoid problems down the road.
Commercial leasing: One of your greatest investments may be commercial property, either as landlord or tenant. I can negotiate the lease that will protect your interests.
Long-term planning: Once your business is up and running, it is important to start looking ahead. Will you be hiring employees? Will you be looking to expand? Do you have protections in place to help resolve partnership disputes, stakeholder disputes or the departure of a co-owner? It is important to plan for a variety of contingencies.
