Start and run your business with this all-in-one book.

Small business owners are regularly confronted by a bewildering array of legal questions and problems. Ignoring them can lead to disaster -- but with lawyers typically charging $200-$300 an hour, calling one to answer routine legal questions can be a fast track to the poorhouse.

Fortunately, you have a better alternative. Legal Guide for Starting & Running a Small Business clearly explains the practical and legal information you need to:

  • raise start-up money
  • choose between a sole proprietorship, partnership or LLC
  • get licenses and permits
  • buy or sell a business or franchise
  • negotiate a favorable lease
  • insure your business
  • hire independent contractors safely
  • understand small business tax rules
  • pick and protect a good name
  • resolve legal disputes
  • adopt the best customer policies
  • enter into strong contracts
  • cope with financial problems

The 12th edition is revised to provide the latest regulations, tax numbers and business realities in a changing economy. It also provides a start-up checklist, an expanded discussion about choosing a business structure, updates to bankruptcy law -- and much more.
