What Does It Take To Build A Successful Business?
Every year, thousands of new businesses launch. They come with new ideas, new brands, new energy. But then slowly they begin to fall. Only a few in the first year, but then they begin dropping off faster and faster with each subsequent year in business, until just a handful remain. These are the success stories.
So what does it take for a business to become one of those success stories? Is a good idea all it takes? A thoughtful plan? Driven people? Reliable financing? Perhaps it’s all of these. Perhaps it’s something more.
Finding That “Something More”
At Rosa PLLC, our attorneys are committed to helping new businesses find that “something more” that can make the difference between a short run and a long, successful life.
We provide holistic business services to clients throughout the United States and worldwide. From those that are at the idea stage to those that simply need to dot their I’s and cross their T’s, we do everything we can to ensure that everything is done to clear out any obstacles and create a path for a successful launch.
Our lawyers have decades of experience handling the necessary legal aspects of starting a new business, including:
- Finding financing opportunities
- Choosing and creating a business entity such as a sole proprietorship, limited liability company (LLC), partnership or corporation
- Applying for a state or federal tax ID number as needed, along with other tax matters
- Obtaining all necessary licenses and permits
- Creating employment contracts and other necessary contracts
Building A Successful Business Is Not Just About The Paperwork
Let’s be realistic; the success or failure of a business does not hinge on getting the proper legal entity set up. Sure, choosing an inappropriate entity or mishandling the setup can cause problems down the line, but it’s going to take more than having the paperwork in order to ensure the success of a startup.
The truth is that the line between the legal and the nonlegal has blurred. A business law firm needs to do much more than move documents around. Service needs to be much more comprehensive. While we can certainly counsel a new business about whether they should be an LLC or an S-corp, our model is to offer much more. We have worked with businesses from the ground up, partnering with them to refine the idea, understand the market, assess the competition, get financing and, yes, do the paperwork.
We are the lawyers that entrepreneurs call and say, “I have an idea, what do I do next?” We’re the legal team that becomes part of the business team, because we are so much more than a business law firm.
Starting A Legacy
We believe that from the very germination of a business idea, entrepreneurs should be thinking about legacy. In a world full of businesses offering every product and service imaginable, what is the purpose of this business? What will it’s impact on the world be, and will it be a positive one?
At Rosa PLLC, we are dedicated to building businesses that matter and leaving this world a better place for future generations. To that end, we have established a reputation for working with innovators in green technology and businesses that want to exist in a way that is healthy for the planet and its people.
Much of our work has involved renewable energy ventures related to wind and hydroelectricity. We have worked with cutting edge recycling facilities. We recognize and are energized by the reality that some of the most powerful innovations of our time are Earth-friendly, and we are proud to put our experience to work ensuring that the businesses we serve leave a meaningful legacy on this planet.
