Business Formation and Planning Attorney

Starting a business without consulting an attorney is like going on a trip without a map or GPS; you might get where you want to go, but it is going to take you longer, cost you more, and be unnecessarily frustrating. At Willcox, Buyck & Williams, we help many South Carolina companies, specifically in the Florence and Myrtle Beach areas, navigate the obstacle-filled path of business formation, and assist them with short and long-range business planning. 

Starting a business is an exciting process. It is easy to get carried away with making your dreams into a reality, not stopping to think about the liability risk that attaches to the decisions you are making. As in life the choices made early on always dictate the number and quality of decisions that will have to be made in the future. If you don’t take the time to get proper legal advice up front, you are going to be paying for that decision throughout the entire life of the business.

Consulting an attorney costs money, obviously, so it can seem like a luxury, or feel like an unnecessary expense. Consider though the costs associated with the legal risks you might be setting yourself up for by not consulting an attorney. It is always without exception less expensive to be pro-active about getting legal advice than it is to call in help only after disaster has struck. In addition, the result you get after a legal issue has arisen, even under the best of scenarios, is never as good as the position you would have been in if you had avoided the issue altogether. 

It is not just the cost of lawsuits that can be avoided by consulting an attorney when you are starting up or developing your short and long-term business plans. It is also important to get pro-active legal advice about taxes and business succession planning. The tax implications of basic business formation and deal-making decisions vary greatly. An experienced business attorney can help your business avoid over-paying the government. 

At Willcox, Buyck & Williams, we believe that the internet is a valuable tool.  But it is in no way a substitute for actual legal advice. Consulting the internet rather than an actual attorney when you think your business needs legal advice is about as helpful as consulting an oracle was in the ancient days. You might get some advice, but whether it is good advice is debatable. The best piece of legal advice you are going to find on the internet is this: you need to talk to an actual attorney.
