    • #1-DEVELOP AN AWARENESS OF LEGAL ISSUES
      • You cannot be expected to know the law and that’s why you hire and develop a relationship with an attorney
      • Problems are much more difficult to solve than they are to avoid
      • An attorney will help you identify risks or potential problems and plan to avoid or minimize them
      Serving the Holland area since 1900
    • #3- REALIZE THAT LIMITED LIABILITY IS LIMITED
      • This seems only intuitive, but many entrepreneurs believe that a corporation protects them from all business liability
      • Limited liability can be viewed as an additional level of insurance that protects you against business risks
      • However, like insurance, it is not bullet-proof

    • #4-OBTAIN ALL NECESSARY PERMITS FOR YOUR BUSINESS
      • There are a wide variety of permits and licenses that are required for businesses (i.e. county, city, township, village)
      • Search at the state level whether you are required to obtain any licenses- www.michigan.gov/statelicensesearch
      • Contact local governmental units
      Serving the Holland area since 1900
    • #5- FIND OUT ABOUT FINANCING OPTIONS
      • You can either borrow money or have money invested as equity
      • Both forms of financing are important, but they oftentimes come with a cost and result in restrictions on your business decisions
      • Loans are primarily with a bank and are not available unless you have collateral
      Serving the Holland area since 1900
    • #6- PROTECT YOUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
      • Intellectual property law allows certain ideas and intangibles to be protected
      • This includes an idea that you patent so you have a monopoly on the sale of this product for a certain period of time
      • You may protect a name or symbol to use with the sale of goods or services
      Serving the Holland area since 1900
    • #7-DOCUMENT YOUR IMPORTANT DECISIONS AND ACTIONS
      • Not having something written down significantly undermines your ability to enforce a contract or protect yourself in court
      • You should be as clear and as concise as possible and always date documents
