BUSINESS START-UP SERVICES

Speak with Lawyers at Heit Law Group

Not all business or corporate attorneys are the same. Finding the right attorney for you at the right price is the goal – an attorney with knowledge of the industry you’re working in, who appreciates that you’ve got to keep costs in check. Ideally, your attorney will be excited about the opportunity to work with you at your current stage.

As you work with an attorney, it will become clear that an attorney is more than someone who fills out forms and make filings on time. Someone who really understands your business can and will help guide you through major obstacles and help strategically seize unrecognized opportunities. Attorneys have the added advantage of working with hundreds and sometimes thousands of businesses. This vast experience is extremely valuable, especially to someone trying to expand their business quickly.

There are relatively few resources to help inexperienced founders navigate the legal services process. Many turn online to find lists touting the “best” attorneys. But, before you take those sites as gospel, many of these lists are based on peer ranking, which translates into, “I’ll recommend you for a list if you recommend me for this other list.” So consider ignoring almost all attorney rankings and lists that are publicly published.

When it comes to deciding who to work with among a host of candidates, you want to make sure you find someone with solid knowledge of corporate law, contracts, IP, tax, employment, and litigation to start. But there are several other criteria worth prioritizing:

  1. Responsiveness – if the need for an attorney comes up, typically it’s for something vital to the organization. Do not work with someone who does not understand your sense of urgency.
  2. Personality – which is especially important as you work closely with your attorney regarding critical and private business details.
  3. Shared Risk Profile – if you tend to push the limits, then you’re going to want your attorney to as well and vice versa.
