As a small business owner, you have a lot to think about. There are employees to hire, meetings to attend, and of course, the always present task of growing your brand. With all these tasks to manage, it can be easy to think of your legal needs as less important, but in reality, they should be at the top of your list.
Here is a look at three common legal challenges that business owners regularly face and solutions that Dana Ball Legal Services can help with:
Contract disputes. Sure, it’s easy to draft a business contract on your own, but without legal knowledge, you could be exposed to a potential lawsuit. A business lawyer knows exactly which items to include in a contract and can also alert you to common pitfalls.
Federal, state and municipal regulations. No matter where your business is located, there are rules and regulations for all entities. It’s critical that you comply with guidelines, whether they are local or national. Know what licenses or permits are required for your type of business. A business lawyer can alert you to changes in the law and assist you in compliance.
Hiring and firing. The hiring process is time-consuming and costly. A business lawyer can help you make legally-sound decisions in terms of hiring and firing. They can also provide guidance regarding other HR matters.
Rather than waiting for something to happen, take action now. It’s far better to be proactive than it is to take action after a lawsuit is filed. Get started today!
