Are you starting a new practice?

Veterinarian and dental practice start ups are exciting, whether it’s the first practice of a professional’s career or an additional practice for a fast growing company. And while the thought of a new practice may be exciting, there are many administrative and legal matters that must be performed in order to start your practice.

LaMaster Law has experience working with dentists and veterinarians starting their own practice. We know the best ways to mitigate against the various pitfalls awaiting the entrepreneurial professional, and we give you experienced assistance from an attorney with knowledge in your field.

There are many factors to consider when opening a new practice. Some considerations include:

  • Forming a new entity and selecting a name
  • Forming a realistic budget based on expenses and production capabilities
  • Existing non-compete restrictions from your current employer
  • Hiring employees
  • Securing a good location and lease on reasonable terms
  • Identifying a qualified and experienced accountant, suppliers, and other professionals
  • Building-out and construction of the practice location
  • Realistic business and marketing plans
  • Financing the practice
