Why Do I Need To Consider A Business Lawyer?

Many business professionals simply download a form, register with the secretary of state and think that they’re in business. Unfortunately, those are only the first steps in the process. Many entrepreneurs do not fully consider the types of liability they will incur or how to fully protect their personal and family assets. Most importantly, they need to determine how to separate their assets from the business and its operation. Failure to properly structure your business and follow required governance compliance exposes you to personal liability in litigation and creditor actions.

Operational and governance agreements clearly establish the roles, contributions and responsibilities of each party. Through these legal documents, you can anticipate all the developments that your new venture may face while providing structure and specifying the processes to be followed, which will protect you during the life of your business.

A business lawyer can assist you in structuring and negotiating critical agreements with members, shareholders, partners, business associates, employees, vendors and suppliers. The main goal will be to maintain your competitive edge while protecting your assets and, ultimately, achieving your business goals.

As the trusted legal advisor of my clients across California, I have witnessed the traps they have encountered and the challenges they have faced. I have dedicated myself to helping business clients avoid these mistakes and work through any challenges that arise.
