According to US Census data, over 23,000 new businesses were established in Pennsylvania and over 21,000 new businesses in New Jersey, just in 2016. Starting up a new business is the beginning of a dream of each person behind that business venture, and may well also be the beginning of the many challenges facing any business. Unfortunately, it is likely that many of those companies which opened for business did so without an attorney advising them or with only an attorney involved in preparing and filing the organizational documents for them.
Retaining an attorney to actually counsel you with regard to the many issues crucial to protect your company’s interests and operations is not only helpful but may be necessary for a company to operate successfully, even if it has the right ideas, business plans, and management in place.
