The Tessier Law Firm, P.A. offers tailored Business “Kickstart” and Growth Plans helping owners design, implement and expand their business with a clear roadmap of legal, business, insurance, tax implications, and financial strategies. Our holistic approach provides a strong foundation on which to confidently start or grow your unique business of any size. Services include:
- BUSINESS PLANNING and ENTITY SETUP
When beginning a business, no matter the size, you should first create a formal Business Plan to organize the multitude of tasks and work streams needed to make your dream concrete. This includes estimating financial projections, and deciding what form of business entity to establish. In drafting your Plan and selecting a business structure, a number of legal considerations should be reviewed with a business lawyer to ensure nothing is missed that will impact your projections and slow your growth plans, building you a solid foundation.
- KICKSTART COMPLIANCE™ HANDBOOKS
Complying with a complex web of state and federal laws is often one of the most daunting challenges facing small businesses. Our Kickstart Compliance™ Handbooks break down the most common compliance requirements for Florida small businesses into easily understood rules which need to be followed, with specific recommendations and alternatives on how to comply, tailored for your business or industry.
- LEGAL RISK REVIEW
Risk management is a process in which organizations identify, assess and treat risks that could potentially affect the operational health and life of the business. If an organization fails to fully identify and monitor its business risks, it will not be adequately prepared for common emergencies, contingencies, and downturns. We help companies assess and documents the legal, compliance, business, and financial risks within their unique business model, and help mitigate those risks by recommending appropriate methods and controls.
- TRANSITION TO RETIREMENT PLANNING
You’ve worked hard for many years to build a successful business that has substantial value. How do you ensure that it will continue to grow and thrive when you retire? Or maybe you do not want to retire totally, but want to spend less time on the day to day details of running the business. Options for transitioning your business to the next stage may not only include selling it as an ongoing concern, or selling assets only, but also might include licensing or franchising your business model to provide ongoing growth and income to support you and your family for many years to come.
