Every successful business begins the same way: with paperwork. Yes, even in the San Francisco area, the new home to hyper-successful startups and arrays of small businesses that are influencing business models on a global scale. Every business begins in the same simple, mundane way; from the business that barely makes it off the ground to the next billion dollar idea, it all really starts with the same set of paperwork.

Very Important Documents

The decisions the soon-to-be business owner makes in this paperwork stage can be as influential on their future success as the original business model. If you are starting your own business, you will absolutely need to hire an attorney to help you in navigating the initial legal decisions, and to help with registering the business as yours. Perhaps the most important decision you will have to make is determining what type of business or organization you are seeking to establish. We can provide you with all of the necessary information, and guide you through the process from start to finish.


For better or for worse, the hotbed of activity in San Francisco startups has attracted many sharks seeking an investment in the next great thing. There are a number of different investment types, and even more investors to choose from, and deciding who your business partners with can dramatically impact the future of your business. Partnering with the right people can give your business the boost it needs, but navigating these partnerships alone leaves you vulnerable to getting taken advantage of. Our small business lawyers will help you secure your business’ financial future.

The Nuts & Bolts

Beyond the legal formation and financial backing of your business, there a number of other things that you as the owner must implement to create the actual business itself. While we are not experts in the field of your small business, we can advise you on how to navigate correctly hiring your first employees, securing your intellectual property, drafting and reviewing all contracts, and helping you obtain insurance to protect your business and assets.
