Dogma Pet Portraits & Emotion Portrait Studios are two fun businesses owned by David and Sylvaine Capron. Although their Costa Mesa based services businesses are quite unique, they are not atypical in their need for legal services. When we first met in our Orange County office, they were interested in building a business that allowed them to live a lifestyle that they planned for their family.
Not educated in how to design a business, they originally met with her certified public accountant for guidance on how to set up a business. One of the most common sources of referrals for Incorporation Attorney’s is often local certified public accountants, tax preparers, and bookkeepers in California.
These are the professionals that handle the financial side of the business and frequently communicate with the clients in the early stages of a new business. However, most small business start-ups need assistance with the legal aspect of their business as well.
Initially the Capron’s needed guidance in the options in setting up the legal side of their business. Once we walked them through all of the options for choices of business entity (such as a general partnership, limited liability company and small business corporation), they made a decision and we worked with them from then on as strategic partners, setting up their businesses so they could operate the way that they had planned.
We work closely with their certified public accountant and other business professionals to build a solid foundation upon which they could operate their business.
Incorporation Attorney’s ongoing relationship with the Capron’s is also very consistent with the norm. One of the challenges small businesses like this face is that they do not typically need the assistance of a full-time business attorney. To do so would get very expensive and is not really necessary.
However, legal problems arise on an irregular basis with a typical small business. Because we were the lawyers that incorporated their businesses and understood what their goals and dreams were, it is much easier for our office to provide the correct and tailored legal guidance when legal challenges arrive. So, whenever David or Sylvaine have a question, we provide a service that allows them to get quick, efficient answers to those quick questions. If the question involves more in depth work, we can provide them the service of reviewing the more complex problems as well.
