Many small business owners believe that regularly working with a business law attorney is reserved for large corporations and Fortune 500 companies. However, small business owners benefit tremendously from having an attorney help them with various matters throughout the life of the business.
Selecting a business entity
Selecting a business entity is one of the first and most important decisions a business owner must make. There are advantages and disadvantages to operating as an LLC, a partnership, a sole proprietorship, or other types of business entities. With the assistance of an experienced business attorney, small business owners are able to make the right decision for their companies.
Throughout the life of a business, the business will enter into various contracts with other individuals and entities. For example, as new employees are hired, it is important to have a contract in place that delineates their responsibilities. Contracts with suppliers, marketing agencies, and tax professionals are also commonly entered into. A business attorney helps small business owners create and review contracts to ensure they are fair to the business.
Of course, from time to time, business disputes may arise. Business attorneys commonly help small businesses settle these claims out of court to both protect the reputation of the small business and save the business significant sums of money. Business attorneys who have been working with the small business regularly are able to immediately begin helping with the dispute.
