Considerations when designing a business plan

When someone begins to set up a business plan, they might want to talk with a knowledgeable business attorney in order to find out related federal and Illinois laws. They can review several areas together as they plan for the future in order to ensure that their business is properly structured and has the flexibility to grow with them.

Some of the considerations the business owner might want to discuss regarding small business formation include the following five topics: the type of business set up; how the business will support itself; staff concerns, pay and benefits; intellectual property or technical information and overseas business matters. Each of the areas must be addressed in a successful business plan.

For example, setting up the proper type of business entity can result in numerous tax and other financial implications. Every situation varies, so what is right for one business will likely not work for another. The type of financial backing, including investors, family or friends, can affect how money is brought into the company due to securities laws. A business lawyer will know how to navigate through these areas in order to ensure that the business complies with the laws. The business owner also needs to be careful when it comes to employment issues. An employment attorney can help draw up an employee handbook and minimize possible liability. A business lawyer also works to protect the intellectual property of clients through patents, federal registration, confidentiality agreements and more.

The small business owner might benefit from professional legal assistance as they plan for current and future business growth. In addition to giving their professional advice, a business formation attorney might help clients set up a solid business plan.
