A: As long as you want to operate the business. You really need to have an in person consultation to set up the right corporate structure, have the proper protection for any intellectual property that you may have, as well as have contracts properly drafted to avoid unnecessary problems and potential for liability. Do not let geographic restrictions get in the way of retaining the best attorney. Pick the best attorney you can find and remember one rule: a good attorney is generally never cheap, and a cheap attorney is generally never good so don't choose based on price.
