Business Planning Tips for California Entrepreneurs

On behalf of The Law Office of Lynnette Ariathurai, A Professional Corporationposted in Business Formation & Planning on Thursday, July 14, 2016.

Plunging ahead to launch a new business in California may be a great lifetime adventure. Prospective entrepreneurs often face many challenges during business planning stages, however. In such circumstances, it is advisable to seek immediate and experienced guidance to increase one’s chances of achieving business success.

New business owners must make all types of decisions, ranging from whether they will create and sell hard-copy products or provide a service to the public. Once a business type is chosen, it is common for budding entrepreneurs to choose names for their new companies. Those pursuing business planning options are advised to seek clarification on trademark and copyright laws before staking claim to a specific title or name.

Whether one will function as a sole proprietor or enter a partnership is another crucial choice that may affect one’s business future. There are many valid reasons for choosing either style. An experienced attorney would be able to offer counsel as to the benefits and potential downfalls of each, then help determine what may be best suited to one’s particular interests.

Many California business owners choose to register trademarks. Also, some states require a new business owner to file a DBA (Doing Business As) to conduct business under a certain name or brand, especially if business and company names differ. Obstacles and challenges may arise when making decisions about company basics and preparing to launch start-ups. By asking a business and commercial law attorney for help, entrepreneurs may avoid delays, and move forward toward accomplishing their bottom line goals.
