The number one question we receive is why should we incorporate our business? The answer is simple…to protect your personal assets. Once your business is properly incorporated, your business can sue people or other corporations or be sued, it can own assets, make money, incur debt and carry on its own business as a separate entity.
There is a lot of planning that goes into creating a business. In addition to incorporating with the state (filing Articles of Incorporation), there are usually city and county licenses that must be obtained. Domain names are ideal. You have to register your business name. Patents, trademarks and copyrights should be considered.
What happens if you incorporate your business in Florida and later find out there is another company in California that is operating under the same name? Our team at the Horton Law Group has extensive experience with business planning and litigation. One of the things that separates us from other business planning attorneys, is that we’re not only transactional attorneys but we are also litigators. As such, when we are in the planning/drafting phase of creating your ideal business, we anticipate future problems, and we try to eliminate them from the start. We try to keep you out of the courtroom right from the start.
