In business, the right team of advisors can be the difference between success and failure. Yet, many business owners do not invest the same time into finding the right legal advisor, as they would into finding the right logo, accountant or communications provider. For many business owners, lawyers are believed to be an unnecessary expense and are not contacted until something goes wrong. Many do not understand how a lawyer can benefit their company, or mistakenly assume what worked for them in the past, or general advice on the internet, will be sufficient for their current needs.

However, foregoing legal advice can result in issues that business owners could never anticipate, let alone prepare for, including unfair dismissal claims, incorrectly worded contracts or intellectual property theft. However, with the right legal advice, these problems can be avoided. By giving guidance on legal issues that directly affect your business decisions, your lawyer can give you confidence to make the right decisions.
