Planning for the Business You Count On
We plan for your business far differently than other lawyers and law firms.
Business guidance begins with either a LIFT Start-Up Session (if you are not quite off the ground yet) or a LIFT Audit to review the legal, insurance, financial and tax systems in your business (if you are already in operation).
We are the holistic business advisors you have been looking for, not just putting in place legal documents or acting reactively, but instead giving you the peace of mind of knowing you have not only set your business up right from the get go, but that your business systems continue to keep up with your growth trajectory.
We focus on the details so you can maintain your high level, creative focus on growing the company and serving the right clients and customers.
It’s taken guts, savvy and sheer determination, but you’ve done it: You’ve made your business a success. You’ve weathered the market swings, outshone the competition, and kept your customers more than satisfied. Your achievements have enabled you to take care of and protect your family. So what happens if you get hit by that proverbial bus?
Hiring and firing team members is the single most expensive part of your business, bar none. And most entrepreneurs simply have no idea how to go about it, not just from a legal perspective, but from a how to run your business perspective.
You probably haven’t thought of your business like this, but really it’s just a series of agreements. Agreements with investors or lenders, clients and vendors, employees and independent contractors, partners and customers; the success of your business depends on your ability to make agreements and seal the deal.
Forming your business entity at The Law Office of Jane E. DePalma is not one size fits all and is never handled in a vacuum. If you wanted once size fits all, you could use a document drafting service or online legal document website.
When it comes to money, most business owners are dealing with it one of two ways – you either micro- manage your books and use your financial reports as a crystal ball that allows you to predict the future OR you manage your financials by going to the ATM and checking your balance.
Like most business owners, I imagine you are frequently coming up with new ideas for product lines, businesses, programs and services. But, how do you know what to move forward with, what goes in the someday maybe pile and what should be acted upon immediately?
