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.

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.
The 16th edition is completely updated with the latest business tax rules and numbers, and best practices for classifying workers (as employee or independent contractor).
