When you start a new business the last thing you are thinking about is whether you need to hire an attorney. Usually a new business owner would not consider hiring an attorney until they are in desperate need for one. For most new business owners, hiring an attorney for your business happens too late and the new headaches and liabilities could have been avoided if they had some protection when they started their new business. That is just one of the many reasons why hiring a startup attorney is so crucial when you begin a new business.
You are a business owner, you need to be focused on running your business, not researching rules and drafting documents. The last thing you should have to worry about once you get your businesses started is whether you are in compliance with some obscure rule or spending hours working on an airtight non-disclosure to protect your great ideas.
There are a lot of ways a good startup attorney can help a startup. They can assist you with formation and organizing the new company. They can make sure you have non-disclosures in place to protect your client lists or great ideas. They can help you with any rules or regulations that might be unique to your industry. They may also be able to help in nontraditional ways, like connecting you with an industry leader or giving you counsel on non-legal issues.
As your startup expands, your needs will change. You may need to protect a logo or a slogan. You may need extra funding to take your business to the next level. A good startup attorney can help you react to the changes, but also help you prepare for them. While legal costs are not cheap, in the long run you will be saving money. You are spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on legal fees to avoid paying tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars later on.
