Business Formation Archives

Business formation is a consequence of mergers and acquisitions

In Oregon and elsewhere, mergers and acquisitions are a common business activity that serves an important purpose for existing companies. For a company that wants to grow in certain activities, increase its geographical locations or offer new products, mergers and acquisitions is a strong option that is available. This method of business formation is very effective and generates solutions that can be quickly implemented.

Buying an ongoing business is a safer way of business formation

Entrepreneurs in Oregon often opt to purchase an established, successful business for obvious reasons of lowering their risk going forward. The process of purchasing a going concern is not quite as easy as it may appear at first blush. Every aspect of business formation contains pitfalls that must be prevented and due diligence that must be performed.

Business formation may include purchasing an ongoing enterprise

There are many details to consider when buying a business in Oregon or anywhere else. It is true that purchasing an ongoing business may give the entrepreneur a better chance of succeeding by taking over a tried-and-true enterprise. However, even in this easier area of business formation numerous perceptions can prove wrong and backfire after the purchase. 

Business formation process requires cybersecurity due diligence

When starting a business in Oregon due diligence requires that issues of data privacy, cybersecurity and the risk of data breaches be thoroughly researched and accounted for. The same applies in the business formation process that accompanies mergers and acquisitions. The problem of finding security weaknesses and even breaches after the acquisition of a business is common but sometimes disastrous.

Business formation may involve a new joint venture enterprise

Oregon business law attorneys may be retained to structure the legal contours of a joint enterprise. This is a business venture entered into by two separate companies joined in a common business purpose. A recent interesting example of this kind of business formation is the creation of a joint venture called FINTRAIL Solutions, LLC. The companies joining in the venture are Guidepost Solutions LLC and FINTRAIL Ltd.

Business formation for a startup includes raising funding

Once the concept and preliminary plans for a new business are in place, finding funding in Oregon and elsewhere is sometimes a far greater challenge. Even where business formation has been accomplished with the assistance of a business law attorney, obtaining the funding to move forward may still be a major obstacle and point of stress for the company. Experts suggest that the new entity join its business' community and start some heavy-duty networking.

Business formation includes building a brand and a brand name

Everyone agrees that a business startup needs sufficient money to get up and running. Some of the early steps of business formation require costs and fees that allow the business to go forward with the best and most appropriate business structure. Oregon is a state that hosts the initiation of many young business startups within its borders, making it a good choice to have a business attorney available during the procedure.

New business formation is at the center of economic recovery

Business attorneys in Oregon often encounter new companies being formed through the means of venture capital investments funding just for innovative startup companies. The founders of most startups also take on a degree of risk as do all business owners. Business formation in this context often involves the participation of a business law attorney who is experienced and adept in working with entrepreneurial ventures.

New business formation centers on trailer-leasing industry

Business formation in Oregon may include the situation where a business law firm represents a new startup venture that is formed by experienced executives in a certain industry. An example of such a new business formation occurred recently in another state when two fleet trailer executives started a new company called Boxwheel Trailer Leasing, LLC. The company was backed with a significant capital investment from Crosstimbers Capital Group, a private investment firm.

New business formation marries two small fast food chains

A business phenomenon seen recently in Oregon and elsewhere is the merging together of fast-food restaurants for the purpose of combining delivery and service functions. Such business unions attempt to increase each company's bottom line by reducing ultimate costs through a sharing of various resources. It's also a way for new business formation to occur, which often requires substantial legal services by business law attorneys to get the new structure organized and operating.
