The Legal Counsel You Need When Starting A Business

The legal aspects of business startups do not have to be intimidating when you have experienced lawyers to guide you. At Clary | Suba | Neale, we have worked with countless entrepreneurs over the years as well as with businesses preparing to expand; acquire or merge with other businesses; start franchises; and take other bold steps forward.

We understand that someone who is about to start a new business is intensely focused on doing what they do best. They rely on us as experienced attorneys to deliver rightsized legal solutions. That is exactly what our firm is about – meeting clients where they are and providing what they need from us.

We are business law attorneys with more than 75 combined years of experience. We will not waste your time while helping you get your business off the ground. We also pledge to cover all essential matters in which you look to us for guidance.

Key Aspects Of Your Business Startup In Baton Rouge Or Elsewhere

Your new business may be operating out of your home or an office or facility elsewhere. You may provide hands-on labor, consultancy services, wholesale or retail goods, or cyber solutions. Perhaps you haven’t started operating, yet but you have a great idea and wisely choose to get your business structure in place first. Whatever your situation is, we are knowledgeable business lawyers ready to guide you through legal issues such as:

  • Entity selection: Will your business be a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, limited liability company (LLC), limited liability partnership (LLP) or nonprofit?
  • Filing requirements with the state of Louisiana: We will help you document your business plan; make financial decisions; register your business’s name with the Louisiana secretary of state, the Louisiana Department of Revenue and the Louisiana Workforce Commission; and make additional filings as needed, such as amendments and annual reports.
  • Taxation: We will get you on the right path to fulfilling tax requirements such as sales tax, income tax and payroll tax withholdings, if applicable.
  • Governance: If your business involves more people than just you, what will each person’s role be? We can help you meet the requirements for an LLC, such as establishing an annual meeting, or devise record-keeping systems that will enable you to comply with regulations.
  • Regulatory compliance: Check with us about environmental laws, anti-discrimination laws, and other laws and regulations that will apply to your business.
  • Employment: Whether you will be hiring employees, contractors or both, we will share what you need to know about hiring, training, benefits and more.
  • Contracts: Get set up for creating and formalizing sales and service contracts, raw materials purchase agreements and more.
  • Marketing: Get basic or detailed guidance about how to spread the word, protect your intellectual property (IP) and avoid violating laws in the process of advertising and communicating with potential and existing customers.

Starting a business is a serious responsibility. It also represents a moment of opportunity that is ripe for your talents and energies. It is our privilege to help Louisianans launch successful businesses.
