Your Tagline/Quote: “You Know Your Business. We Know The Law.”
When people start a new journey with a business of their own, they hardly give any thought to the legal procedures that are required to carry it through. Often considered as civil law, business law is the law that governs corporate contracts, hiring practices and everything that comes under it.
Business law is important so that you can maintain an order in your enterprise. Following a legal procedure helps you to protect the rights of the company and of the employees. And as an added benefit, it also helps to set a standard of how things should run in an organization.
Featuring for the Cover Story of The Business Fame’s issue of The Most Recommended Law Firms to Watch in 2021, is Kelly Bagla’s Bagla Law Firm, APC.
“It takes the right legal advice to get your business off the ground.”
Bagla Law Firm is a business law firm celebrating its 11th anniversary in law. We provide a complete suite of services to fulfill the needs of entrepreneurs, small businesses, corporations, and international businesses.
Bagla Law Firm specializes in providing excellent legal services to those clients who are based outside the United States and plan on growing their business by selling products in America. It can be very daunting and confusing for foreign-based companies learning the ins and outs of how to do business in the United States and that’s where we excel: helping those companies with all their legal needs when expanding operations in America. No need is too great as Bagla Law Firm helps clients from the startup phase, to the growth phase, and eventually through the sale or merger phase.
Bagla Law Firm also helps clients with offshore asset protection. The strongest asset protection you can establish is an offshore strategy involving a limited liability company and a trust. Offshore asset protection removes your entire asset portfolio out of the U.S. legal system. You essentially put your assets into a legal system that has the strongest asset protection laws in the world.
Starting a new business or entering a new market is a giant leap, both emotionally and financially. In the United States, incorporating a business involves planning, making key financial decisions, and completing a series of legal activities. Moreover, the legal structure one chooses for their business impacts the business registration requirements, how much taxes it should pay, and how best to protect against personal liability. Bagla Law Firm, a distinguished law firm led by Kelly Bagla, Esq., makes the leap as simple and as reliable as possible.
Bagla Law Firm has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses, and they know the issues, confusing steps, and documents necessary to ensure that your company is set up for success from day one.
Business Formation Services-
Business formation is a necessary early step of starting a business and protecting your personal assets. You need to know what the right structure is for your business to determine your path going forward and avoid unnecessary costly headaches down the road. Bagla Law Firm will help you select the right business structure most beneficial for you.
One of the most important aspects of your business is its brand, which identifies your products and services and helps you stand out from your competitors. Your brand will include your logo, company name, and slogan. Brands are a critical asset of your business, which is why it is so important to protect your brand through trademarking.
“It’s important to understand your financials and what your business is worth.”
As a private business owner, you know that every major decision requires careful thought and preparation, and what bigger decision is there than deciding to sell your business? To sell your business is not as simple as putting up a for-sale sign. There are lots of things you need to take into consideration, and many steps to prepare. Making these strategic decisions will help you achieve the highest possible valuation of your company.

A Journey of Inspiration-
“For anyone entering into a field which only has 3% of women in corporate and business law, there was some uncertainty from time to time. But I had an enormous amount of conviction that I was doing the right thing, with each of these decisions. I was born and raised in England and I am the youngest of 7 children. Although I have wanted to be an attorney for as long as I can remember, I also witnessed firsthand, the incredible freedom and opportunity that comes from being a business owner. I watched my father work tirelessly as an employee of a factory, all the while saving, and dreaming, before ultimately buying the company he had worked for. It was a beautiful and empowering experience.
Not surprisingly, my parents encouraged me to follow suit and chase after my dreams. Even though there were no attorneys in my family, they cheered my every step. As a young attorney at Baker & McKenzie, I cut my teeth in the practice of law with some of the best attorneys in the field. After leaving and joining a boutique IP firm, I expanded my knowledge and expertise to include not only the practice of law but how to bring in clients, which would ultimately allow me to open Bagla Law Firm. There was also a bit of apprehension about leaving the international law firm, and again, there was fear to overcome when launching my firm. But my conviction overrode my fear. Although healthy fear can play a valuable role from time to time because it prevents us from making risky decisions such as going for a jog on a freeway during rush hour; when it comes to chasing after your dreams, I find fear to be a particularly unhelpful emotion. So, I walk right through it.”
