Starting a business is both an exciting and stressful time in the life of the company owner. There is a lot that goes into it, many things to sort out and mistakes that are likely to be made. While business formation can be done all by yourself, to help the process go swiftly and smoothly, it may be wise to consider seeking the assistance of legal counsel in order to make sure nothing is forgotten.
You have your idea, you have a vision for your company, so now what? One of the first things you need to do is figure out how to legally structure your business. There are various structures that are recognized under Georgia laws, including sole proprietorships, corporations, general partnerships, limited liability companies and limited partnerships. Each type has certain advantages and disadvantages, so it is important that you choose the right one for your company. If you are not sure which that is, an experienced business attorney can help you figure it out.
Along with setting up the correct business structure, business owners may need assistance in establishing acceptable policies and practices. By having strong policies in place, a company owner can avoid a variety of legal issues or have a way to resolve them quickly.
