Small Business Lawyers Who Can Guide You Through Your Business Journey
Business is a journey. Do you have a guide?
Every business starts with a dream. You embark. And then reality sets in. Accessing capital. Collecting receivables. Negotiating contracts. The road seems full of pitfalls. If only someone knew the way? Handling employee problems. Banks, creditors, regulators, lawsuits and taxing authorities... Robbers lurk around every bend. If only you had a guide.
A new venture is a huge undertaking. It takes tireless effort and it doesn't feel like there are enough hours in the day. Setting up your entity, getting funding or financing, and navigating corporate and IP law without a lawyer is possible, but we wouldn't recommend it. Even if your budget is modest, investing in a relationship with a startup lawyer can reap dividends for years to come. How much would it be worth to lock in that big deal? How much would it be worth to protect your IP and business model from competitors and copycats? Having a startup attorney on your team to guide you and help you navigate the maze of mission critical tasks a startup faces can make the difference between a successful launch and an aborted mission.
A skilled turnaround lawyer can quarterback a business turnaround. Revamping your operations, restructuring your debt, working out deals with your creditors, and defending against legal challenges takes a mix of legal knowledge, experience, financial acumen, and diplomacy. Navigating a turnaround without a skilled business lawyer on your team is a little like going to the Super Bowl without a quarterback or a playbook. A turnaround lawyer can be your "go to" person not only to execute your strategy, but to help you to understand your options, and to give you the support you need to focus and execute.
Growth is exciting, but comes with obstacles that can derail you if they aren't dealt with. Growing businesses face a variety of legal challenges as they scale, hire, systematize operations, ramp up sales, reach new markets, set up new locations, and acquire or create additional assets and IP. Protecting your proprietary trade secrets is paramount. Negotiating your material contracts is critical. Good employment contracts and employment law compliance is a must. Strategic use of credit lines is necessary for financial leverage. Smart tax planning is at the heart of every deal. And at the center of all your activities and initiatives is the need to preserve your company's unique value proposition and your core values.
