Small businesses often are reluctant to hire a transactional lawyer until it is too late – which is usually after they have been served with a lawsuit. The reluctance is usually related to cost. But while finding a good small business attorney at a reasonable cost may be challenging task, the outcome is usually priceless. A knowledgeable and skilled small business attorney can help small business avoid a whole host of issues that can severely impair the financial stability of the company. These issues include employment matters, tax matters, intellectual property issues, compliance with securities laws, and others. Attorneys who have served as in-house general counsel of companies are forced to address all of these different areas of the law, thus making them more adept to represent small businesses.
