How an attorney can help when you are starting a business

Becoming an entrepreneur is exciting. To own one's own successful business and be self-sufficient is the American dream. However, setting up a new business to begin operations can be stressful if a first-time business owner does not have experienced advisors. There are likely several matters that a new entrepreneur may not even know need to be addressed.

Baton Rouge to see business selling CBD products

As states across America begin to loosen their grip on marijuana and marijuana-related products, many are taking advantage of business opportunities. Less than a month ago, the State of Louisiana began issuing permits to businesses to sell hemp-based CBD products, which means that many business opportunities are now available to those who want to exploit them. Although the law allows businesses to sell hemp-derived CBD products, it limits THC concentration to less than 0.3%. Also, food, beverage, and inhalable products including CBD remain prohibited.

Business formation and the benefit corporation

Entrepreneurs in Louisiana often find themselves debating which legal structure their businesses should take. There are a number of options, each with their own benefits and drawbacks. Although it may seem like a relatively simple consideration to make, the ramifications of this choice can be resounding. This is why individuals need to thoroughly analyze their options before making a decision.

Business formation and the nonprofit organization

Many Louisianans who are considering starting a business do so with an eye on making money. They therefore begin their business planning with an eye on maximizing profits. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. However, that business model isn't right for everyone.

Corporate bylaws: draft wisely for board of directors purposes

The type of legal structure you choose to utilize in the formation of your business lays the foundation for how your business will operate, be taxed, and proceed in court. Although that is a challenging enough proposition to begin with, especially because there are many options, the matters relating to business formation don't stop there. Instead, a new business owner must consider things like funding, supply chains, human resources, and establishing contracts with pertinent parties.

Basic considerations when contemplating a partnership agreement

There are many considerations that must be made when starting a business. Among them is the type of legal structure that will be utilized. This seemingly basic decision can lay the framework for businesses operations, liabilities and taxation. Therefore, there is a lot at stake when making this business decision. This can be especially true when creating a partnership.
