Your own business can be a very rewarding adventure, and a very confusing process. Starting a business involves planning, making key financial decisions, and completing a series of legal activities. At Phillips Law Firm, Inc., we try to make it simple for our clients. We help you decide what kind of business to create, from the simplicity of a sole proprietorship, to the complexities of corporations with multiple shareholders. We help you wade through the paperwork of financing your business, whether you are using a Small Business Administration loan, a home equity loan, or money from investors that will own a part of your business. We work with partners to draft shareholder agreements up front that will avoid confrontations in the event the partners decide to go their separate ways due to incompatabilities. We register your business with the Secretary of State, help obtain your Employer Identification Number, and explain how to comply with the correct tax and licensing laws. If necessary to protect your brand, we can assist with registering your business name and logo with the United States Patent and Trademark office. We also assist you with obligations related to paying employees such as withholding taxes, the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, and Unemployment taxes. When you are ready to start your own business, do it right, with the help of an attorney from Phillips Law Firm, Inc.
