Nobody wants to face any legal issues at any point when one is starting or managing a business. For any business to grow in the right direction, you need an accountant and a lawyer. Having a financial accountant may be obvious, but having an attorney may not be so apparent. An attorney/ lawyer can help your business with the following, namely protection against lawsuits, Contract Drafting, Mitigate Damages, Filing for Patents, supporting business structural decisions & many more which are detailed below.

In this article, we are going to unlock five reasons why you need a lawyer for your business.

Protection Against Lawsuits

All companies get threats in several forms like intellectual property theft or unfair trade practices. Sometimes, they come in the form of class-action lawsuits or internal contract disputes. You may need a strong Legal expertise to get help over these lawsuits.

Contract Drafting

You’ll need legal guidance while signing contracts with other parties. Valid contracts can only be prepared by legal experts, as per the required terms and conditions & these contracts are essentials to protect your business.

For E.g: While dealing with employees, customers, vendors/suppliers, it is imperative to avoid any discrepancies, it’s important to be clear on all terms and expectations. Having a well-drafted contract/agreement that complies with all legal terms is something that a lawyer takes care of.

Mitigate Damages

There are various laws businesses have to comply with, for example- environmental laws, finance laws, employment laws, and many other laws which any new business needs to keep track of to avoid a lawsuit. Having a lawyer in advance can ensure you are following the right regulations and prevent a lawsuit in the future & expensive disasters down the road.

Filing for a Patent

Filing a patent can be time-consuming and can be very challenging. Further, if you are doing it on your own, you may face a hard time to get them approved in a fair and reasonable amount. However, with a patent attorney, you can get your patent filed in a systematic and timely manner.

Business Structural Decisions

Understanding the tax obligations, liabilities, ongoing expenses, setup fees, and employee-related concerns for every business is essential. If you don’t have the expertise the chances are high that things may go wrong for you legally. A lawyer can save you from all that trouble.

Overall, There are “N” number of business regulations associated with running a company. Understanding all of them is not easy for every business owner. But that does not mean a company will be exempted from any violations. Ergo, a business lawyer is someone who identifies potential risk first hand so that your business doesn’t suffer in the future.
