When You Need to Retain a Lawyer
While there are minor tasks such as naming your business, or claiming a
trademark that you can do on your own, you will need an attorney to navigate
you through more complex issues, such as:
- Forming a corporation with shareholders and a board.
- Filing a patent, which can take years to approve.
Any type of
litigation involving employees, customers, environmental lawsuits, or government
- Buying or selling a business.
- Negotiating sales and lease agreements.
All too often, business owners contact lawyers after the fact, and they
end up spending significantly more because they failed to consult an attorney
before entering a lease, forming a particular business entity, or because
they did not firmly protect their intellectual property rights.
Whatever your legal situation may be, do not be afraid to ask for advice
before you commit to something that could end up costing you dearly in
the future. Whatever you do, make sure that you are well-informed before
you make any legal decisions.
By having a skilled business law attorney involved in complex situations,
you are giving your business a competitive advantage, and that is priceless.
