Business Creation In Ohio

Creating a business can be a very rewarding adventure and a very confusing process. Starting a business takes more than an idea. Business owners face many financial decisions, including many involving contractual obligations. Moreover, there are many legal issues to attend to in starting and operating a business. At Phillips Law Firm, Inc., we try to make it simple for our clients.

How Phillips Law Firm, Inc. Can Help

Our lawyers can advise you about the legal options that may be available to you and 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 who will own a part of your business. We work with partners to draft shareholder agreements upfront that will avoid confrontations in the event the partners decide to go their separate ways due to incompatibilities.

Once the legal structure of the business is determined, 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. Our experienced attorneys also assist you with obligations related to paying employees such as withholding taxes, the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and Unemployment taxes.
