How Can You and Your Business Profit From an Attorney?
A business attorney is an integral element to having a productive and well organized business. The key is to be proactive instead of reactive. A business attorney guides you through nearly every facet of your business from the planning stages, to implementation, reorganization and even dissolution (if needed). To keep proactive and therefore ahead of potential problems, your attorney will ensure strict adherence to incorporation laws, zoning laws, contract liability issues, drafting contracts, negotiating contracts, protecting shareholder/manager interests and any other issue that your particular circumstances call for. Being proactive protects your business against lawsuits. Once a complaint is filed, damage has already occurred and much more money is spent on getting out of the damage than if you were to consult an attorney in advance.
Choosing an Attorney for Your Business Needs:
Getting bounced around from attorney to attorney is not a desirable position to be in, that is why qualifying your attorney on the onset of the relationship is so important. Asking the right questions like, how much experience do you have in situations like mine, what areas of law do you foresee overlapping with this type of organization, and are any of those areas outside of your practice’s focus? Many attorneys today specialize in just one or two areas of law. While hiring a specialist is quite appealing in some areas, it is difficult in business law because your needs will expand over the course of your career – in short, it is more than a one-time deal.
Hiring an experienced attorney places you at an automatic advantage. Because of their experience, they have had the time and opportunity to become an authority in the area of business law. Therefore, many of the “qualifiers” will already be present and you as the client can be more confident in your attorney’s ability.
