Company Formation And Growth/Evolution

If you are starting a business there are many things to consider. The first question of course is what type of business structure best suits your unique needs.

Whether you have one employee or 100, the single most important thing you can do is plan well. This includes acquiring capable advice on contracts, buying, selling, leasing and succession planning. After all, setting up a business, creating contracts and entering agreements are all legal acts.
