It takes time and careful planning to launch a start-up business . However, with the right help, you can speed up the process and sleep better at night knowing that you have someone to go to with all of your questions – because you will have a lot of questions. Starting a new business takes more than common sense, it takes advice from others who have experience with starting businesses. Find a business law firm in San Jose and enlist the help of a start-up attorney. Let your lawyer know about your plans for your business, and learn about any necessary licensing and regulatory requirements you must fulfill. A corporate attorney can help you form the business entity that best suits your needs such as a corporation, Limited Liability Company or a limited partnership. A good attorney can also introduce you to a good accountant to keep you on track.

You can hear more about the importance of working with a corporate attorney by watching this animation. It is a bit silly, and very over-simplified, but this short presentation offers a list of some of the things you should consider when launching your start-up, from writing the business plan to developing strategies for long-term success. Keep in mind that no online video is a substitute for legal advice. For instance, the video recommends using interns to keep your costs down, but doesn’t tell you that you can get into a lot of trouble ($$$) if you don’t satisfy the minimum wage requirements. That is why it is so important to gather all of your facts, create a plan, and then run it by your business lawyer.
