4 Things Every Small Business Should Seek Legal Help For, by Sacramento area Attorney Terry L. Gilbeau

business law sacramento rocklinMany small businesses in the Rocklin and Sacramento area may believe that they don’t have a reason to ever hire a lawyer. They may also feel that they simply can’t afford a Sacramento attorney even if they did need one. Truth be told, there are a lot of things that businesses should seek advice from a small business attorney on.

Working with an attorney can be much more cost effective than one may think. A small business lawyer can help you save a lot of money, time, and frustration in the long run. There are some issues that should be handled by a small business attorney right from the start. These include:

  1. Business name and license. When it comes to setting up a business name it is important to make sure the name you choose is something you can legally use. A small business attorney will help ensure your name is not only legal, but will also take measures to help protect it from being used by others. This will help get your business off to a great start.
  2. Setting up the organization. A business lawyer can also help you accurately set up your business organization (e.g., sole proprietership, etc.) and help determine which route is best for you and your business goals. This is an area that can be confusing to many, yet it’s important to set the business up right from the start.
  3. Protecting your property. Whether you have intellectual property that needs to be protected or you have a patent you’d like filed, a business lawyer is the way to go. These issues, and many others, will be handled professionally and nothing will be missed.
  4. Legal forms. This is an area that may seem obvious, but surprisingly many small businesses try to write up their own legal forms. If you go that route, still work with a business lawyer to have them evaluated. This includes such things as non-disclosure agreements, contracts, business partnerships, etc.

Working with an attorney can help your small business to get off to the right start, as well as grow when it comes that time. There are many areas that an attorney can help, and there are ways that they can help make it affordable. A small business lawyer can provide the legal help that will put your mind at ease, help protect your business, and give you the advice you need in order to succeed!
