The Importance of Lawyers for Small Businesses

Posted by Audrey Schechter | May 03, 2019 | 2 Comments

Small businesses should prioritize hiring a lawyer to assist them with contracts.  It is wise to have a lawyer draft or review any contracts you anticpate entering.  Contracts are legally binding and should not be entered into blindly.  A lawyer will verify that your contract addresses everything that is important to you, as well as identify potential pitfalls.  Such advice will inevitably save you money down the road, allowing you to avoid litgation or make any litigation more manageable.  A lawyer cannot forsee every issue, but can raise issues that you had not considered.  If litigation does result, then the lawyer who prepared the contract will have a better idea of the intent in the formation of the contractual relationship, and be better equipped to assist you in that litigation.  Also, under Florida law, a business entity must have legal representation in a court proceeding. Having an already established relationship with an attorney will assist you in this regard as well.

As a small physical therapy business owner (and growing)for 16 years one of my biggest mistakes early on that caused some hard lessons was not having ALL my contracts read by attorney. I had intelligent and business wise people assist but it is no way the same as a experienced attorney. After learning my lessons I have used Audrey for many contracts, problems that needed to be handled with landlords, insurance companies and advice. She provides excellent service and covers a wide range of needs as my healthcare attorney . I sleep better because she is in our team .5 stars
