Why Do I Need to Consider a Business Lawyer?
Many business professionals simply download a form and register with the Secretary of State and now “we’re in business.” Unfortunately, this is only the first step in the process, and many entrepreneurs haven’t fully considered the types of liability they will incur and how to fully protect their personal and family assets, and separate them 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, anticipating all of the developments your new venture may face while providing structure and processes that will guide each step and protect you during the life of your business. Critical agreements with co-members, partners, business associates, employees, vendors and suppliers should be carefully structured and negotiated to maintain your competitive edge while protecting your assets and ultimately helping you to achieve your business goals. I have witnessed the traps you will encounter, the challenges you will face and have helped business clients to avoid these mistakes, and work through genuine challenges that arise. You will find my fees to be competitive and a good value for the quality and quantity of work provided.
