YOU NEED AN ATTORNEY. THIS IS WHY.
BUSINESS = LIABILITY
The reality of owning a business is that it comes with the possibility of great rewards and significant risk.
Three main sources of liability are:
- Internal – employees and independent contractors
- External – clients and competitors
- Accidental – events beyond your control
A properly structured corporation and carefully executed contracts will compliment and supplement any insurance protection, limiting the exposure of personal assets to business liability.
BUSINESS = EXPECTATION
Starting a business is an exciting time and everyone has expectations. Informal relationships are great for golf buddies, book clubs, etc… but in a business it is important to clearly and legally define the roles and expectations of partners and investors so these are understood by all. Implementing the proper agreements and contracts will involve some initial cost, but that cost will be well worth it in the event of a dispute within the company.
BUSINESS = IMITATION
You have a great idea and innovation leads to imitation. You’ve put a lot of time, effort and thought into developing your business. Leaving it unprotected enables someone else to swoop in and benefit from your ingenuity. It’s been said that imitation is the greatest form of flattery, but in business, imitation is the greatest source of competition.
