Business owners are faced with countless business law situations, which can range from starting a business and choosing its legal structure to business finances and taxes. These decisions could make or break your financial future and the stability of your business. A business law firm will be able to guide you through these decisions.

The hiring and firing of employees also falls under business law as does forming the right business partnerships. Creating legally binding contracts is crucial to your business being successful. A business law firm can help you with these situations as well.

How do you start a business?

If you decide to start a business, you should be ready to do some careful planning. What will your goals be? What are your products? Who are your customers? How will you get the money you need to start? Will you have employees? How will you incorporate? A business and commercial law attorney can help you answer and work through all of these questions.

How do you write a business plan?

The U.S. Small Business Administration, along with state and local government agencies, all provide good advice on what to include in a business plan. It should include answers to the above questions and provide any information that you think any potential investors will want to know.

How do you get a business license?

Your state government will have information about any permits and licenses you will need for your business. In some lines of business, there will be other federal and local permits you need as well, such as a liquor license. A business and commercial attorney can help you address every detail in getting your business off the ground, helping you avoid any unnecessary errors that can cost you time and money.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Points to Consider Before Hiring a Lawyer

Experience. Regardless of the type of legal matter you need help with, an experienced attorney will usually be able to get you better results.

Competence. Determine an attorney’s expertise by asking about their track record for the issue you need help with resolving.

Fit. There are plenty of good attorneys out there; make sure you find one you are comfortable working with.
