Why You Might Need a Business Attorney

Do you have a business or are you considering starting one? A lot of people, especially when they are in the early stages of their business, don’t bother with an attorney. They figure they are too small for an attorney or that they can handle everything on their own. While not all businesses have an attorney, it’s generally a good idea to consult with them.

Below, we’ll be looking at some of the top reasons to consider having a business attorney with you from the earliest stages of your company’s life.

Start the Right Type of Business

A business attorney can let you know about the options you have when it comes to starting and structuring your business. Are you going to be better as a sole proprietorship or are you starting a partnership? Should you opt for a limited liability company or a corporation?

The attorney can explain all of the differences along with the benefits and drawbacks of various types of company structures.

Handling Contracts and Negotiations

Business attorneys will also be available to help read through contracts and to draft contracts when needed. This ensures that no one takes advantage of you and that your contracts are all legal and binding. You will also find that in some cases, attorneys can help to negotiate for you. This can be especially helpful when it comes to contracts.

Help Buying and Selling Businesses

Buying and selling businesses will always have a host of legal consequences. A business attorney can provide you with the advice you need throughout the process and can help with a lot of the paperwork.

Employee Policies and Laws

Business attorneys can help to guide you when you are hiring employees, independent contractors, etc. They can provide you with the legal advice you need to prevent claims of discrimination or from breaking the law. They can also look over your employee handbooks and manuals to ensure they all comply with the law.
