Strategic Planning and your first consultation with a New York Business Law Attorney

by Fred Abramson on January 15, 2010 · 1 comment

Whether you are interested in starting a business or looking for help with your existing corporation, your first meeting with an attorney should include strategic business planning.  This includes discussing what are the:

  • Desirable course of action your company should take among the different alternatives;
  • Feasability of each alternative;
  • Consequences of each course of action.


When discussing which alternative is most desirable you need to look at:

  • The level of risk you are willing to accept;
  • ROI, or return on investment;
  • What control or management decisions you wish to have;
  • The tax implications of each course of action.

When starting a business, as a preliminary matter you need to discuss the corporate form of your company.   Thereafter, you should have your attorney investigate:

  • Whether there are any licenses or government approvals required to run your business;
  • Trademarks;
  • Copyrights;
  • Labor;
  • Securities;
  • Environmental concerns.

Violations of any of the above laws could be very costly for your company and a stategy needs to be developed with a lawyer to deal with them.

The liberal economy and the trading and commercial relations between commercants in Turkey are carried out by means of paper cheques. The banks give empty paper cheques to their customers and the commercants use these paper cheques in trading of goods and services by writing 6 months, 1 year or longer period of maturity on them. The trade in Turkey is carried out by means of post-dated cheques.
The financial crisis in the world has had profund influences in our country and the commercants have become not able to pay their post-dated cheques.
As per our country’s laws, the businessmen are punished with prison penalty due to those unpaid paper cheques. As the commercants in Turkey, we are facing sanctions that are contrary to the Universal Law Principles.
There are 148 thousands of people in prisons in Turkey as of this date. Where as the capacity of prisons is 80 thousands, commercants are laying one on another in the jail and are facing all kinds of epidemic diseases..

In addition, by the effect of financial crisis, the number of commercants sought for by the police and escaping from the law is 200 thousands and when these are arrested, the occupancy ratio in prsions will be inevitably 350 thousands of people.
