Attorney Ben Thompson was quoted in an article in the October 11, 2013 issue of the Midlands Business Journal regarding the importance of anticipating the type and applicability of government regulation of a new business. “Regulations cost businesses money, so the business plan needs to anticipate the cost of complying with federal, state and local laws,” said Thompson. “It also helps to understand which additional laws and regulations apply to businesses and when the new businesses may have to adapt to additional regulations, such as the Affordable Care Act or laws governing discrimination in public accommodations or in the workplace.”
