Starting a Business
Do I Need To Hire A Lawyer ?
You don’t necessarily need to have a lawyer ready at your “beck and call”; however, it is a really good idea to hire a lawyer when you are in the startup stage of any business. A lawyer can advise you on such things as:
- Drafting contracts
- Reviewing your lease
- Determining a good business structure
- Drafting a strong partnership agreement
- Becoming incorporated
A lawyer will know what you are trying to do and help structure your business in a way most beneficial to you. Your lawyer will also help to ensure that your partnership agreement will hold up in court should that be necessary.
