Ice Miller Start-Up Package

Package Overview

Transitioning an idea into a fully functional business is a complex process that requires a proper foundation and advice to be successful. With all the costs associated with commercializing an idea, some founders forgo initial legal assistance in an attempt to cut costs only to expose themselves to greater legal costs and potential personal liability in the future. Ice Miller understands the limited resources that are available to founders of start-up companies and has developed the Ice Miller Start-Up Package to enable you to put in place the proper legal foundation for your business without diverting vital financial resources away from the development of your business. Through the Ice Miller Start-Up Package, attorneys at Ice Miller will work with you to determine and establish the type of entity and capital structure that best suits your company's growing needs so that you can move forward with your business legally protected and with the proper foundation.

Business Formation Process

Ice Miller attorneys will walk you through the business formation process, identifying all the major decisions that you should make at this critical juncture.  Forming your business not only helps to protect your personal assets from creditors, but can provide you with greater business flexibility, potential tax advantages and ability to engage potential investors.
