Why do I need a business lawyer?
Although there are many aspects of a business that an owner can handle independently, an experienced business lawyer can help prevent common issues that arise. Business law covers a wide array of issues including business formation, mergers and acquisitions, business transactions, and business planning, and our lawyers are competent in approaching these issues in the context of a variety of business types.
Many small business owners only hire a business attorney when they face a serious and potentially costly legal issue. Being proactive and seeking legal counsel ahead of time can prevent many legal issues from arising. A skilled business lawyer can put your mind at ease so you can focus on running your business.
What is virtual in-house counsel?
In the past, the only options available to small businesses were to hire an expensive full-time in-house counsel or an outside legal professional to assist them with their legal matters. In reality, neither of these options are sufficient. Full-time in-house counsel can be prohibitively expensive, and outside counsel lacks the knowledge and understanding of your business to help you develop a strong business strategy.
For small businesses or recent startups, it is nearly impossible to gauge how frequently you will require in-house counsel services. Virtual in-house counsel makes sense for many of these businesses. AdvisorLaw’s fees are significantly lower than comparable outside counsel fees. Because every business is unique, we create individualized billing structures that protect you against unexpectedly high legal bills or cumbersome hourly billing requirements.
