The all-in-one business law book

Whether you're just starting a small business, or your business is already up and running, legal questions crop up on an almost daily basis. Ignoring them can threaten your enterprise--but hiring a lawyer to help with routine issues can devastate the bottom line.

The Legal Guide for Starting & Running a Small Business has helped more than a quarter million entrepreneurs and business owners master the basics, including how to:

  • raise start-up money
  • decide between an LLC or other business structure
  • save on business taxes
  • get licenses and permits
  • choose the right insurance
  • negotiate contracts and leases
  • avoid problems if you're buying a franchise
  • hire and manage employees and independent contractors
  • attract and keep customers (and get paid on time), and
  • limit your liability and protect your personal assets.

This new edition explains how to do all of these things, taking into account coronavirus implications.
Whether you're a sole proprietor or an LLC or corporation, a one-person business operating out of your home, or a company with a large staff leasing space, this book will help you start and run a successful business.

The 17th edition is completely updated with the latest business tax rules and best practices for running a home-based business.
