Certain business ventures require proper licensing and permits in order to operate legally and legitimately. Before starting up certain businesses, it is vital to obtain the required licenses and permits from state, federal and local government agencies. Licensing and permit requirements can vary depending on the type of business you are going into, so contact your state and local government to determine the specific obligations of the business you’re interested in starting. Typically, businesses that are in the field of manufacturing almost always require some type of permit or license. Our business lawyers can also help to determine which license or permit you may be required to get for your business, and can help you to get that license/permit.
Our lawyers can also help your business obtain a basic business operation license from the city in which your company will operate, or from the local county if your company will be based outside of the city's limits. Hiring a lawyer can also be helpful when obtaining a federal employer identification number, also referred to as an EIN or a tax identification number.
