Law Books

Everything seems to be going great until it’s not, right? If you run your own company, you may have a small business lawyer that you’ve worked with to get your business operating the right way. But do you know what events should have you consider hiring them again? Let’s talk about some different situations that you may cause you to hire a business attorney.

An Employee Sues You

Whether the employee of yours is a past or current one, if they’re suing you, you’ll want help from a lawyer. The employee, no matter their status, could be suing on the grounds of different things, such as making a discrimination claim or filing a wrongful termination suit. It doesn’t matter the reason for being sued, having a lawyer to help your case is what you’ll need.

Your Business Violates a Law

There may be a time when your small business accidentally, or purposely, violates some type of law. These violations can be anything from environmental laws to federal or state laws. Having a lawyer help ensure that your business if following all regulations properly could prevent this from happening.

Deciding to Sell The Company

If and when the time comes to sell your small business, you’ll want to do it the right way and have all of your bases covered. Hiring a lawyer to assist with this process and the paperwork that is included is ideal.

Hiring a lawyer to represent your small business from the start could potentially prevent some of these issues from happening. Don’t let a legal issue sneak up on you without help. Call Dan Burke to discuss all of the small business legal help you may need.
