Starting up and running a new business can be an exciting, lucrative, and wholly rewarding opportunity. However, it is important to ensure that your business starts off on the right foot and that your personal assets are secure before you begin. As a local Fairfax business lawyer, I can make certain that your business is established and registered correctly and that you have safeguards in place no matter what the future might bring.
According to the American Chronicle, 80% of new businesses fail. Although there are many reasons for this frightening statistic, it is only one more reason to make certain that you take the correct steps when first beginning your venture. Even if you have a great idea and the means and know-how to develop that idea into a successful company, you may not know the particulars of cost-effective planning or deciding on an appropriate business structure.
