Why Every Business Needs A Business Attorney?

Most business owners face business-related legal decisions on a daily basis. As the owner of a business, this should be no surprise and for many business-related legal issues, an attorney is not necessary. However, when polled, most business owners don’t have a trusted business attorney to represent their business when legal issues do occur. The reason many business owners stated that they didn’t already have a relationship with a business attorney was that they thought that a skilled business attorney would be too expensive for a small business. As such, most business owners only hire a business lawyer when serious legal issues come up.

At Antonoplos & Associates, we don’t think you need a business lawyer for every decision you make. However, consulting an experienced business attorney is an invaluable resource for your company for two reasons. First, a good business attorney will be able to offer guidance on many issues such as reviewing the terms of an office space or storefront lease, drafting contracts that will establish business partnerships, and review website development agreements. Overall, incorporating a business attorney in general decision making ensures that your business will not enter into any potential disastrous agreements. Secondly, by discussing important parts of your business with a business attorney, this attorney will be better equipped to represent you in the event that litigation occurs. For these reasons, consulting and incorporating a business attorney into your business’s general decision making can even save your business money.

Below, you will find more information on when you may not need to consult an attorney and how Antonoplos & Associate’s business law practice can help you when you do need an experienced business law attorney.

Business Issues That Don’t Require a Business Law Firm

For most small business owners day-to-day business decisions don’t require help from your attorney. 

Some of the more frequent business decisions that don’t require a business law firm include:

  • Applying for business permits
  • Documenting LLC meetings
  • Submitting your IRS forms
  • Creating and reserving a domain name for your business’ website
  • Researching and choosing the name of your company
  • Hiring independent contractors

While the list above is not exhaustive, these are the most common examples of when a business owner is capable of making decisions without legal advice.
