The Crucial Role of a Business Lawyer

For many business owners in the San Antonio and neighboring communities, working with a lawyer is a lower priority than staffing, marketing, and sales and is done only when there’s a problem.

However, smart companies focus on planning and preventing problems in advance. They make sure their businesses are protected against potential trouble by working with a business lawyer early in the process.

10 Reasons for Legal Counsel

A business lawyer plays a crucial role in the formation of a company, the sale of a business and everything in between. From the start of your business venture to the finish, having a specialized lawyer in your corner to offer countless services can make running your business go much more smoothly.

A business lawyer provides a variety of services.

  1. Determine and establish the best structure for your business whether it is a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability partnership or corporation
  2. Assist in taxation issues
  3. Review and make recommendations on contracts ranging from leasing space to working with vendors
  4. Defend intellectual property such as a company’s name, logo, and distinctive goods and services
  5. Navigate the complex city compliance codes and assist in obtaining state licenses required
  6. In the event of a dispute, a business lawyer will help protect clients, go to arbitration or court if needed
  7. Assist in the collection of debts and the use of liens if additional collections actions are needed
  8. Provide legal counsel for the company if it goes public
  9. Provide guidance when owners retire, referred to as business succession, to help plan for the future and put the business in the best position for a profitable and smooth transition
  10. Facilitate full or partial sale of a business, handling both the financial aspects and the changes to the business formation

Quite simply, no business can afford not to hire a lawyer since attorneys are intimately involved in advising businesses on their legal rights, responsibilities, and obligations.
