Understanding Business Startups

Once the decision is made to start a business, the business owner should choose a name for the business and decide on the best corporate form. The type of business that an individual or individuals wish to create often dictates the form of business entity created.

The decision between a corporation, limited liability company, partnership and sole proprietorship should be based on an analysis and comparison of:

  • Liability exposure
  • Tax consequences
  • The number of owners involved
  • Future expansion plans

This decision is very fact-specific and should be made with the assistance of a certified public accountant (CPA) and attorney from the outset. Obtaining competent, professional assistance early in the business formation process will allow the owners to make informed choices and ensure proper guidance regarding compliance with applicable laws.

When Disputes Make A Turn Toward Litigation

There are a number of legal mistakes that can lead to disputes among startup members. Everything from failing to establish a clear founder agreement, choosing the wrong business entity under which to form, failing to create a standard customer or client contract to not considering intellectual property protection can all lead to disputes that could require business litigation to resolve.
