4 Steps to Legalize Your Business

Follow each of the following steps to make your business legal.

Step One

CHOOSE A NAME

Learn how to research your business name to ensure you are not infringing on any existing trademark with our free checklist to the right

Step Two

FILE AN LLC

(or other entity)

Liability protection is how you protect yourself and your business. Even if you are a sole owner, DO NOT skip this step.

Step Three

GET A BUSINESS LICENSE

Each state and even city is different. Research your local business license department to determine if you need one (e.g. google [city] + business license department). Or, learn more about this and much much more in our Business Law 101 Course.

Step Four

USE ATTORNEY DRAFTED TEMPLATES

Get it in writing: Use attorney-drafted templates, written by a real-life lawyer and customized to your industry. Don’t worry. Drafted has you covered.
