Geneva Business Lawyer

St. Charles Attorney for Starting a Business

There is a lot involved in starting a business. Beyond choosing a company name and deciding what type of business entity to form, numerous legal issues need to be addressed. Before you begin your life as a business owner, be sure you have a complete understanding of any legal issues that might impact you.

At the law office of R.D. Skelton, Ltd., I have been practicing law in Illinois for 30 years. For the first 20, I worked primarily in municipal law. My understanding of state and local statutes governing business operation can help you avoid pitfalls that could hold back, or completely curtail, your plans for starting a new company.
