If you or a family member are planning to start a business, like many others, you may not know where to begin. It might be tempting to try to form the business without any legal assistance whatsoever or go to an online service such as LegalZoom to avoid expense.

However, attempting to form a business without legal advice can potentially lead to unexpected delays due to errors in filings, which can further lead to otherwise avoidable and additional expenses. Additionally, an online service does not provide the personal touch your unique business needs like the business formation attorneys at Lovelace Law can provide.

The Problem with LegalZoom (And Other One-Size-Fits-All Online Business Formation Solutions)

Online services such as LegalZoom provide boilerplate resolutions to unique business circumstances.

Suppose your business entity requires particular conditions, procedures, or responsibilities provided within its governing documents or bylaws. In that case, the one-size-fits-all nature of these online services will oftentimes not be tailored to your business’s needs.

Online Services Can’t Keep Up With Changes In Your Growing Business

Further, once your initial formation services and documentation are provided, your business is often left on its own going forward.

Questions may arise that need to be answered, amendments to governing documents may prove necessary for your business to adjust to changing circumstances, or resolutions may need to be drafted to memorialize changes that happen long after your business is formed.

Ultimately, when these matters arise, you’ll find yourself going to a law office for assistance anyway.

Why Consulting With a Business Formation Attorney is a Safer Bet Than LegalZoom

You need more than an online template to protect your interests and navigate the often-complex situations that arise during the life-cycle of your business.

These are just a few of the reasons it is a good idea to give us a call to help you with your business planning from the start.

Our Attorneys Will Draft Legal Documents Tailored To Your Business Needs

Unlike boilerplate, one-size-fits-all online services, the business formation attorneys at Lovelace Law are experienced in tailoring a business’s governing documents to its unique needs and changing circumstances.

In addition to ensuring your business is properly formed with the Secretary of State’s office at its creation, our attorneys can provide governing documents or bylaws for your business – not just a singular business document.

They Can Help You Create a Record Book And Ensure Your Documentation is in Proper Order

Whether a corporation or limited liability company, all new businesses need a record book that houses vital company documents.

Our business formation attorneys can help you create your own record book and gather all the necessary documents, including ownership interest or share certificates and a customized company seal.

Our Business Attorneys Can Help You Stay on Top of Legal Changes

Perhaps even more importantly, once your business is formed and has been operating, our attorneys will be available to address future changes in your business’s circumstances – being already familiar with your business’s unique situation and existing documentation.
