What to Look for in a Business Law Attorney

Business Law Attorney NJ

It is important ​that you know why you are retaining The Law Office of H. Benjamin Sharlin LLC as your business law attorney. If you own a business and require the services of an attorney, there are certain criteria you should be looking for. Schedule an appointment, and I will be happy to answer your questions. In the meantime, this checklist should serve as a decent guide:

  • Experience – Ask questions directly related to the experience you require. Do you plan to incorporate your business? Then, ask about experience with handling incorporations. A trustworthy attorney should be able and willing to openly discuss such matters.

  • Connections – It not what you know. It is who you know. This is as true, if not more so, in the legal field, as it is in any other. Before you hire an attorney, you want to know that you are getting the most for your money. Your business may have specific legal needs, ones that are outside your attorney's scope of expertise. Why start all over again? You want a lawyer who is familiar with those areas.

  • Other Clients – An attorney may have a business law practice, but does he or she know your industry? It is good to know that an attorney has or has had other clients in your industry and its legal environment.

  • Education –  Can the attorney educate you on topics ranging from the legal environment of your business to how certain laws impact your business?  This is important. Some attorneys post blog entries, such as this one, to keep clients informed.

If you have questions about business law and whether this office would be the right fit for your business, contact this office for an initial consultation.
