The benefits of having a good business lawyer
Oct. 29, 2016
As a business person, you’re confronted with dozens of decisions every day. Some are relatively minor, but others can have a big and long lasting impact on your business. Even if you’re in a small, family owned business, you need to be paying attention to those decisions with the utmost care to ensure your business remains healthy and vital for years to come.
No matter if you’re a small Palm Springs business, or a big company with millions of dollars in sales, chances are you have an accountant to help you with bookkeeping, a banker to help with cash flow and expansion plans, and several others specialists to assist you in your daily operations.
But one of the key individuals you should not overlook is having an outstanding and experienced business lawyer as part of your team as well. Business attorneys can serve in a wide variety of functions from the first days of a start-up to advising owners who have been in business for many years.
A business lawyer will easily prove their worth with routine legal issues, but when a stronger legal stance is required, lawyers add value far beyond their hourly billing rate. Their expertise is especially timely when dealing with matters such as lawsuits, financial disputes, licensing issues, employee relations, intellectual property issues, environmental concerns, property and zoning legalities, and more.
Because a business owner is emotionally attached to their business, and they need to be to succeed, a seasoned and well-rounded attorney can be counted on to do their job without the emotional component, ensuring that decisions based on facts will steer the business in the right direction.
Because lawyers handle many different types of situations, that impartiality is also important in helping an owner make decisions that may extend well beyond legal issues as well.
