Course Description

There are many legal issues in starting a business and every decision about the company name, its structure and business operation have legal implications. The majority of businesses are regulated with both government and legal oversight in order to ensure that they are operating within the confines of the law. As a new business owner, you should be familiar with all the legal considerations as you start your new business. While many entrepreneurs have a basic understanding of the law, the majority of them do not consider the legal implications of starting a company.

Generally, a new company should have no legal issues in the initial stages of development. However, it is advisable to consult with an attorney to be sure that you are starting off as a legally sound organization. A knowledgeable attorney can properly advise you and offer advice that specifically correlates to your particular situation. Today we have a business attorney that will speak to these important topics.
