Starting Your Business in Arizona

Starting a new business? Need some advice from someone who has been there?

Giving advice regarding starting a new business is a little bit like the blind man describing an elephant: it depends on where you are standing. For example, a government official will focus on permits, licenses and taxes; an accountant may emphasize accounting, payroll and tax issues; and a marketing person will develop your identity, brand and unique selling proposition.

As an Arizona business lawyer, I consider the following items to be important in starting your business:

1. An entity

2. Source of Capital

3. Business Plan

4. Your Team

5. Due Diligence

6. Start-Up Capital

I hope this partial list helps. If you need further help you can always make an appointment with the firm for your entity, trademark, contract, litigation, or other matter.
