Of course I would love to be your trusted small business advisor and lawyer, however, I just want you to find someone, even if that someone is not me. The last thing I want you to do is any of the Top 5 Legal Mistakes Made by Startups.
I am going to jump directly to number 5 because I think it is very important: “Not hiring a lawyer.” When you are during your start-up phase of business there is a lot of legal stuff that you will have to deal with. The stuff that comes up, you probably would never have thought of on your own. Take for instance, my client and boyfriend, James and Defensive Resources LLC, he is setting up his own firearms business to be run out of his home. There are some things that have come up that a home based business probably you would have never thought about, like zoning and special permits.
If you are like many people, you assume that lawyers cost too much money and you can do the same things a lawyer can. I am sure that you are smart, especially if you have decided to start your own business, and I am sure you could probably figure out some stuff on your own. However, you are already busy doing some spectacular; starting your own business! If you do not take care of the legal matters that need to be taken care, you could end up paying even more money in the end than paying a lawyer upfront. Your new business is important to you and why should you take extra time away from it when a lawyer can do the legal stuff that you don’t know about or think about.
There are a lot of lawyers out there, I may not be the lawyer for you, but I surely do not want you to make mistakes when you are busy starting a new business. If you have decided that I am a lawyer you would like to meet with at least, to see if you would like to work with me, I would love to sit and chat with you. Simply contact me to set a chat up.
