Frequently asked questions about Virginia business law

Why is business formation or choice of entity important?

The decision to operate as a limited liability company, partnership, or corporation has serious tax and operational implications for a business. Our attorneys are well versed in all of the advantages and disadvantages of each type of business entity.

What should I do to start a business?

Before starting a business, it is a good idea to fully understand the nature of the industry, have a written business plan, understand how to finance the business, gain experience in a related business, and have access to enough money to cover expenses until you can turn a profit. Advice from an accountant and a lawyer is helpful so that you understand the tax and legal issues of starting your business. A lawyer can structure the business to minimize taxes, avoid legal problems, and reduce the chances for personal liability. A brief, inexpensive consultation can save you considerable money.
