Starting a business is an exciting--and intense--adventure. You know your industry, you’ve done your research, and chances are good you don’t have a lot of room to make mistakes. At Scott Vicknair, LLC, we know all about it because we’ve been there. Our rapidly growing firm started as a conversation between three friends at a local café, and it’s been an exhilarating ride ever since.

We now regularly advise early-stage businesses, from single-unit landlords to technology innovators. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, and we’re not going to pretend otherwise. Our goal is to develop a legal structure that will help you accelerate through each new success.

Choosing a business entity, navigating regulatory concerns, establishing brand and trademark protections, negotiating deals with vendors, establishing employee and contractor agreements—when properly configured, these considerations can feel like a safety net rather than a snare.

Get Started Right! Contact Scott Vicknair, LLC

The decisions you’ll make in the early days of your business will serve as the foundation for everything that’s to come. Choices that can seem insignificant at the outset can carry a lot more weight as the stakes grow.

The legal requirements for starting a business are more complex than just filing the right documents and forgetting about them—they include designing a resilient structure to protect your rights and maximize your efficiency. We can guide you through that process, providing advice tailored for your unique goals, now and in the future.
