The benefits of a good business law attorney

Posted by Lee StringhamDec 14, 20170 Comments

Chances are, if you are a business owner, sooner or later, you are going to need the services of a good business law attorney. They can be a key member of your executive team if you run a large multi-million dollar company, or they can be a trusted advisor whom you turn to time to time as needed if you're a smaller mom and pop operation.

A well-rounded business attorney can assist a business owner in many ways

There are so many legal issues that come up during the normal course of business. Even if you are sharp and well versed in many different kinds of legal issues, you need to understand that delegating legal issues will free you up to pay attention to other equally pressing business matters which can become overwhelming if not promptly attended to.

While an attorney will prove their worth in routine legal issues, they are especially important to have on board in times when litigation could take place. An attorney may be called upon to deal with a wide range of issues, some of which include:

  • Lawsuits
  • Intellectual property issues
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Trademark infringement
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Financial disputes
  • Licensing issues
  • Employee relations
  • Environmental regulations
  • Contract issues

Perhaps one of the most important things that a good business law attorney can bring to the table is an impartial and unemotional analysis and recommendations that rely on facts to help a business owner reach the best possible decisions. Many times, this can extend to non-legal issues as well, since attorneys are trained to think in factual terms.

For business owners, the key is to have a good relationship with an attorney already prior to when the need arises for their services. This will make it easier to work through issues since trust has already been developed and the attorney will already have a good working knowledge of the business owner and their business.
