Question 7

 

The law firm of Dewey, Cheathum, and Howe is considering opening a new office on the east coast of the United States. The two cities under consideration are Philadelphia and New York. Based on the factor ratings in the table below, in which city should the law firm locate? (25 points)

I think Dewey, Cheathum and Hoew should relocate to New York. The main reason is bank accesibility. Banks are more accesible in New York and when starting a new business it is essential to have access to Banks to get rid of debts otherwise your business might go out of business. Costumer convenience is also a great factor. If coustumers are not interested, it doesnt matter how much rent you pay, or your labor cost, you will go out of business too. Also as I can see in the chart, taxes are much higher in Philadelphia so it is a better idea to do business in New York as taxes will not be as expensive and you will have more profit as a result.
