Before Hiring a Business Lawyer, Understand the Difference

Many business lawyers take a “one-size fits all” approach with their clients; they do this so they can work with as many people as possible in a short period of time. One problem with this approach is that you receive an impersonal experience; but even worse than that, this type of planning can lead to unintended results for your business.

When lawyers do not take the time to inquire, listen, understand and truly consider your business’s individual circumstances, the result is that your business documents and model do not reflect what is best for the structure and, ultimately, growth of your business.

So even though you may pay less up front to get a standard set of documents or corporate set up, you lose money in the long run.

  • to help you explore potential opportunities;
  • to evaluate insurance buying decisions, asset protection planning choices, and tax saving strategies; and

Here are some of the ways we are different from most traditional business planning lawyers:

  1. All of our fees are fixed fees that are agreed to in advance. At our initial meeting, you will choose the level of planning and fee that works best for your business, so there will never be any surprises.
  2. We are proactive advisers who check with you and your business on a regular basis.
  3. We meet with you at least quarterly via our Business Growth Membership program.
  4. We help you get your legal and financial house in order by helping you make smart choices about things like buying insurance, selling your business, and retirement planning so you never spend more than you have to or get taken advantage of by unscrupulous sales people who see your business as a cash cow for them.
  5. Legacy Planning. We believe that your business is here to last and we want to help make sure that’s the case. Your work is meaningful and we will work with you to keep it that way.
