Solution Driven Representation

Should Your Business have an Attorney on Retainer?

It is highly recommended that you have an experienced business lawyer on retainer1 for your business. Often, business owners hire attorneys on an ad-hoc basis, retaining them as different matters need to be handled. However, having a business lawyer on retainer can provide multiple advantages.

For example, when an urgent issue arises, there is no need to search for an attorney that you can trust. Even then, it may take the attorney some time to properly examine and get to know the intricacies of your business. A true retainer is also for exclusivity. Having an attorney on retainer means that the retained attorney will give your business’ needs a priority over their regular business. The retained attorney will be able to prioritize the review of your contracts when the need arises.

Additionally, while all businesses encounter certain legal issues, a retained attorney can provide assistance when unique issues involving employment law and human resources, intellectual property law, business contracts, and business liability arise. A skilled business attorney will be prepared to handle any matter that your business may face.

Retaining a business attorney from the very start can save valuable time, energy and money in order to help avoid litigation. Retaining an attorney from the beginning can help you focus on your business and not on legal questions. A retained attorney can help avoid litigation by reviewing all your business contracts. Without the help of a skilled attorney, a business owner may not recognize any unfair or adverse provisions that may leave the business vulnerable to losses or liability.

Furthermore, many states, including Texas, have many laws regarding zoning,2 permits, and taxes that business owners may not be aware of. Unless a business complies with these laws, compliance penalties can be high.

Finally, it is important to realize that the location of your business is also very important and often key to your success. A retained attorney can ensure that the location of your business is secure and cost-effective. The business attorney can review any lease agreements or any other documents if your business is involved wi real estate transactions.
