Understanding the Legal Responsibilities of Starting and Managing a Business in Wisconsin

Posted by Brad Sarkauskas | Jan 24, 2023 | 0 Comments

Starting a business is an exciting and challenging endeavor, but it is important to remember that it also comes with a wide range of legal responsibilities. At Heritage Law Office, we understand the importance of staying compliant with state and federal laws, and we are here to help you navigate the legal landscape of starting and managing a business in Wisconsin.

Business Formation

One of the first steps in starting a business is selecting the appropriate business entity. The most common types of business entities in Wisconsin are sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), and corporations. Each type of entity has its own unique advantages and disadvantages, and it is important to choose the one that best fits your business needs.

At Heritage Law Office, we can help you understand the pros and cons of each type of entity, and assist you in choosing the one that is right for your business. We can also help with the process of registering your business with the state, and obtaining any necessary licenses and permits.

Contract Drafting and Negotiation

As your business grows and evolves, you will likely need to enter into contracts with suppliers, customers, and other businesses. It is important to ensure that these contracts protect your business interests and minimize your legal risks.

Our attorneys at Heritage Law Office have experience in drafting and negotiating a wide range of contracts, including sales agreements, service agreements, and non-disclosure agreements. We can help you to understand the legal terms and concepts in these agreements and ensure that they are fair and reasonable.

Compliance with State and Federal Regulations

All businesses must comply with state and federal regulations, and failure to do so can result in fines, penalties, and even legal action .  Our attorneys at Heritage Law Office can help you understand and comply with these regulations,  including employment laws, tax laws, and environmental regulations.


Starting and managing a business in Wisconsin can be a complex and challenging process, but with the help of a qualified business law attorney like Heritage Law Office, you can navigate the legal landscape and set your business up for success. We offer a wide range of services to assist you with all aspects of business law, from formation to contract drafting and negotiation, and compliance with state and federal regulations.  Contact Heritage Law Office today at 414-253-8500 or by filling out our online form for a consultation and take the first step towards setting your business up for success.
