Benefits Of Hiring An Attorney When Starting A Business

You have worked hard, and your idea is close to becoming a reality. Now is not the time to risk it all by going it alone. A knowledgeable business lawyer can help you with all aspects of business formation, including:

  • Choosing a business structure: Choosing the right structure today – whether an LLC, S corporation, C corporation, partnership or sole proprietorship – will go a long way toward avoiding future legal problems and personal financial exposure. We will examine issues such as liability, your tax obligations, employees, and setup costs as we consider your options.
  • Avoiding legal exposure: Lawsuits can drain time, energy and other resources from your core business and threaten the future of your operation. We keep an eye on the future so we can proactively resolve potential issues before they result in legal exposure.
  • Drafting durable contracts: One way to avoid legal exposure and other problems is to make sure your contracts with employees, vendors and consumers are legally sound and protect your interests. A contract is only as good as its weakest link. Legal representation is especially important when it comes to contracts such as real estate leases, where mistakes could result in your business operating under unfavorable terms or being homeless.
