Starting and running a business is hectic, and business owners usually prefer executing and selling instead of covering legal issues that are every bit as important. We developed a "Business Legal Health Checklist" for business owners to have a better idea of where they are at from a legal perspective and what they should be focusing on. It's not legal counsel, it's not comprehensive, and not every business needs the same amount of details as is covered here. Therefore, we urge you to find a business lawyer as a second step to tailor an action plan to your specific situation.
The business legal health check can cover, among other areas:
Have a proper Stock Plan in place
Verify the existence of Cap. Table
