My First Business Law Attorney
The best entrepreneurs understand that hiring an attorney is part of business. It saves money and prevents a host of problems. Others wait until they encounter a serious business matter or legal fiasco. Whether you are already running a small business, or have just started one, you should consider hiring your first business law attorney.
The best way to avoid legal problems is to prevent them from happening in the first place. They tend to sneak up on you when you are too busy running your business. You may have dismissed the option at one point. It may have seemed like an investment you could not afford. All of a sudden, you are sued by a customer. By retaining a business law attorney, you prepared for such an event and always have an advisor on hand for your business-related questions.
You can either prevent or react. If you wait until someone files a lawsuit claiming discrimination based on questions asked at their job interview, all you can do is react. If you had simply consulted an attorney beforehand, you likely would have avoided the problem all together.
Consultation arrangements are more cost-effective than hiring an attorney full-time inhouse, at least in the beginning. By conducting your own research, with an attorney providing legal review and guidance, you might end up avoiding unnecessary costs down the line.
Time to Hire a Business Law Attorney
Any business owner can fill out a form, but some issues are too complex or time consuming to tackle on your own. Hiring a lawyer becomes a matter of necessity. When the following occurs, it is time to hire a business law attorney:
- An employee suing on the grounds of discrimination.
- The government filing a complaint or investigating your business for violating a law.
- Your business is involved with an environmental issue.
- Someone wants to buy your company, or you wish to acquire another company or its assets.
Your first business may be your only business, or the first of many. As a business law attorney, I have had the privilege to join many business owners on their respective journeys. Many times, I have been someone's first business law attorney. If you find yourself in need of my services, please contact my office and schedule an appointment.
