At the Law Firm of JAG, P.L.L.C., we understand that starting a new business requires much planning and many important decisions. First, as a new business owner you must decide under what entity, if any, to do business.

All these entities are unique, each with different requirements, understandings, and obligations. At the Law Firm of JAG, P.L.L.C., we help you to choose the right organization for your goals, present needs, and future aspirations.

Each enterprise varies as does the requirements and filing needs for each venture. All businesses will at a minimum require a certificate of use and occupational license to conduct business at their place of business. Thereafter, your needs vary depending upon your line of business.
