WHEN DOES A SMALL BUSINESS NEED A LAWYER?
As a San Antonio Small Business Attorney, we field hundreds of questions from Texas small business owners in subject areas ranging from entity formation to intellectual property issues.
The truth is that there are hundreds of instances in which a small business owner might need an attorney to protect and expand his/her business. Starting with one of the very first decisions: How to incorporate the business. This first step is essential in making sure that your personal assets are protected from your business assets - you want your family's property shielded from business liability.
Still yet, your business name, website, URL, software licensing agreements, business contracts, employee relations, and HR department are all subject areas you'll want to protect with a strong legal foundation.
SMALL BUSINESS ADVOCATE
When is the best time to hire a San Antonio Small Business Attorney? The answer is: Right now! The reason it's important to consult with an attorney sooner rather than later is that many problematic situations can be avoided altogether with smart legal planning.
When you consult with an experienced Small Business Attorney, his/her first step will be understanding more about your business. The founding story, members, customers, and core business practices. Once you and your attorney discuss your value proposition and systems for fulfillment, he/she will have a much clearer idea for how to help.
Your small business attorney can help you throughout the life of your business. For instance, when starting out, we can help small business owners choose the proper legal structure to form their business, choose a name and file for proper trademarks, choose a URL and website structure, terms of service, and privacy policies, as well as setting up advantageous licensing agreements. This is just the beginning...
