How to Start a Contracting Business

Contractors live in a competitive world. Landing customers, biding jobs, producing quality work, handling subs all require constant attention. Don’t let legal uncertainty distract you from your work. We created Drafted Legal specifically to help ease the complexities of legal issues.  

What licenses must you obtain to build in different cities, counties, and states? Where do you file your taxes? How do you hire employees? What waivers of liability should you give to your employees if there is an accident on a job site involving the weather? For answers to these and other questions count on Drafted Legal!

Don’t waste thousands of dollars in legal fees and don’t give away your time looking to the internet for your solutions. Instead, let Drafted Legal help guide you to appropriate solutions tailor-made for contractors and builders alike at a fraction of the cost. As business lawyers we’ve worked to create a way to provide you with the legal information and documents you need to begin your company that are affordable. Drafted Legal will cover the following topics:

  • Trademarks
  • Licensing
  • LLC, Partnerships, and Corporations
  • Raising capital
