The Many Hurdles to Starting a Business

Casey OConnell

All too often, entrepreneurs overlook or underestimate the administrative burdens of starting a business. While the business owner is focused on the business itself and the idea that inspired he or she to start the business, important details such as the type of business entity to choose, licensing, tax considerations, insurance, registering with the proper regulatory associations or boards, and other necessary steps are neglected.  Choosing the proper legal entity to form for your new business - whether it be a corporation, LLC. partnership, or some variation of those - is not the only concern that should be on the mind of the business owner.  In my own experience starting The Law Offices of Casey O'Connell, I encountered unexpected obstacles such as the need for a business permit for the City of San Diego, and the proper professional insurance to carry.  I spent days researching myriad issues to ensure I was organized properly and within the bounds of the law and the ethical obligations that govern the practice of law.  This was in addition to the traditional entrepreneurial concerns such as generating revenue, minimizing expenses, and trying to stay afloat in a competitive market.  If you are experiencing similar concerns with your start-up or existing business, The Law Offices of Casey O'Connell is here to help you wade through the administrative burdens to starting your dream business.  Don't let the overwhelming nature of the red tape deter you from pursuing that dream.  If you encounter problems or need advice on how to proceed in your business, contact the firm today to discuss.
