Whether you are just establishing your small business or you have been operating for decades, the attorneys of Sandground West Silek & Raminpour, PLC can help you with all of your business related legal needs.
Most small business owners only hire an attorney when confronted with a serious legal problem, e.g. after they have been sued. However, while most small business owners can handle the minor interactions they have with the law on a day to day basis, some issues are in reality much more complex than they appear at first blush. A business’ Articles of Incorporation or Operating Agreement can cause massive headaches for owners and members if improperly drafted. And no business owner wants to find out the big deal they negotiated is void because the contract wasn’t properly drafted. In instances such as these, sound legal advice often saves you money and helps your business in the long run. Experienced counsel is essential to avoid unnecessary headaches.
Other issues that can arise are employment disputes, government investigations, and environmental issues, whether your business caused the issue or not. It’s important to remember that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. By the time a lawsuit is filed against you it may be too late to mitigate your legal exposure. However, by consulting with an attorney you may be able to prevent a suit from being filed against you in the first place.
