Small business law is a very important segment of business law. Why? In the United States, roughly one half of the country's GDP and over half the nation's employment is generated by small and medium sized businesses that employ fewer than 500 persons. For most reference, however, the term ""small business"" is applied to those businesses that employ fewer than 100 people.
Small business law is used to establish a legal framework for business operations. Businesses may be structured as a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, or variations on the last two. There are many websites online that can help with this or, of course, you can employ a small business law attorney to guide you through the process.
