In many situations in life, you call an attorney only when you are facing a specific legal problem, such as a personal injury from a car accident or a divorce. As a business owner, you should look at the assistance of an attorney in a different light, as an experienced business lawyer can help you in many ways throughout the course of your business.
Forming a relationship with a business attorney is important because that attorney will get to know the nature and risks of your business, as well as your goals. Your attorney will then take steps to further your goals for success through every stage of your business.
- Forming the business – Forming a business can require many steps and compliance with several legal requirements. An attorney will fully evaluate your situation and determine which steps are necessary for the type of company you want to run. This can include legal entity formation, filings with the Secretary of State in Texas, license and permits, real estate, and more.
- During the regular course of business – Many different laws and legal principles apply to business during their regular course of operations. For example, you must be in compliance with all employment and wage laws in Texas and on the federal level. Any contract that you are considering should be either drafted or reviewed by an attorney prior to signing to protect your interests. These are only a few examples of how a business attorney who understands your company can assist you on a regular and ongoing basis.
- Facing a dispute – A legal dispute with a client, vendor, employee, another owner, or someone else can arise when you least expect it. If a dispute is not handled properly, it can result in significant legal and financial liability for your company. An attorney who is skilled in business litigation can help you resolve disputes in the most favorable way possible.
