Carlsbad, CA – Acclaimed San Diego business attorney Kelly Bagla, Esq. announced today that she is launching her new website (www.baglalaw.com) along with her companion book devoted to addressing and answering the greatest frustrations every business entrepreneur can expect to face – understanding the Legal Lifecycle of their business and how to fully bulletproof themselves to ensure their long term financial success.
Go Legal Yourself™ is by far the most detailed guidebook yet released into the marketplace that clearly explains the Four Phases – or Legal Lifecycle – that any business will go through, and how to properly set up one’s business to help ensure its success from day one. Readers will learn what they thought was right, what they should at minimum actually be expected to know, and what they never thought of asking to ensure their smooth sailing in the often perilous business waters that can lie ahead.
“To know exactly where you are in your Legal Lifecycle can enable you to more fluidly from one phase to another, be it from Startup to Growth, or Establishment to Sale/Exit,” Kelly explains. “For years, I’ve had business owners come to me far too late in their business lifecycle – after they’ve gotten into all kinds of legal troubles or been sued – with nearly the same exact questions, because they didn’t do enough to protect themselves beforehand. So, I decided it was time to write this book – to save future entrepreneurs from the same kind of anguish that a number of my clients have often come to me very late to fix.”
As Kelly tells it, it is essential for every business owner – from startup to those in the most mature phases of getting ready to sell their businesses – to understand the distinct and very specific phase their business is in – no matter what the field – because the Legal Lifecycle applies to all business types. By preparing in advance, corresponding legal processes and protections can be initiated to help ensure successful outcomes that owners are looking for.
“Because my firm is an expert in this legal area, particularly with helping small businesses to fully protect themselves, their assets, and continuing to grow, our experience has enabled us to provide a range of services to all manner of businesses, from startups to exit. We offer a unique “one-stop-destination shop” for entrepreneurs that addresses every phase of their business. After dealing with hundreds of the same business issues for several decades, these distinct phases came into sharp focus for me, which allowed me to then distill them down in an easy to read and follow format for business owners to help them to button up and protect themselves.”
When asked what the most common mistake startups and fast growth companies make that are serious about winning in business, Kelly didn’t hesitate.
“Not having the RIGHT contracts in place, specifically tailored for the particular phase of the Legal Lifecycle that their business is in,” she replied. “Simply put, business owners often don’t know what they don’t know. While few parents couldn’t anticipate shifting into increasingly more advanced tactics and strategies to successfully oversee the growth of their children, unfortunately, no one has ever provided business owners with a comprehensive instruction manual and overview of how to ensure the healthy and viable growth of their businesses. To address this need, we’ve come up with a series of customized legal packages, relevant to where each owner is at in their life cycle, along with full follow-up access to an on-call expert that can further advise them as well as anticipate their specialized future legal planning needs.”
Among her most popular legal packages, Kelly observes they include:
* Corporation Formation Package
* Articles of Incorporation
* Sole Incorporator Resolution
* Organizational Meeting Minutes
* Founder’s Stock Purchase Agreement
* Form SS-4 to obtain Employer Identification Number (EIN)
