Businesses are governed by both state and federal laws and it’s crucial for your business standing that your business abides by these laws, which is just one reason why every business needs legal counsel, if not in-house, then at least a telephone call away. It’s also important to your business that you have an attorney who is able and willing to protect your rights and interests. What your business does not need, however, is an attorney specializing in business law who does not represent the needs and values of their organization. Here at Goldberg Law, we are more than business lawyers, we are veteran attorneys who want to leverage our experience to help you to create, build, and maintain a corporate presence that reinforces your image and values.
A common misconception is that only major corporations require an attorney “on hand”, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. With approximately 100 million legal cases filed in US state courts every year, small businesses and entrepreneurs aren’t immune to becoming a target either. So, while it may not be necessary to have an “in-house” attorney as a small company, it is important that you have an attorney on hand who can assist you with any legal matters that may arise.
A few examples of these types of legal concerns may include:
- The startup of a business
- The breakup of a business
- Business law violations
- Construction law concerns
- Breach of contract claims
- Contract enforcement
- Settling contract disputes
- Government regulatory disputes
Another common misconception is that business law is all about taking cases to court. In actuality, business law covers any type of legal proceeding pertaining to a business barring the sale and distribution of goods and financing of particular transactions (these areas are covered under commercial litigation). So, while your company’s legal team should be skilled in the courtroom, it’s equally important that they are accomplished in navigating other legal waters as well.
Here at Goldberg Law Group, our legal team relies on the depth of their experience to represent our client’s interests inside and outside of the courtroom. For example, we regularly conduct mediation and arbitration for both public and private business organizations so that, if possible, court can be avoided.
Why is it important for your company to be represented by a legal team that offers alternative dispute resolution strategies like arbitration and mediation? Because these services help to minimize your time spent involved in disputes and cut down the financial burden of litigating in court. In turn, these services also mean that you can get back to “business as usual” as soon as possible so your business is not hemorrhaging money while being at a standstill, or at least half-functioning while you are tied up in red tape and court hearings.
To be in good standing a business must abide by the laws and regulations imposed on businesses by both the state and federal governments. The federal government regulates investments, stocks, employment, environmental protection, and workplace safety. The state government, however, can establish their own laws governing other aspects of business and they may add to federal laws. This means that while all businesses must abide by the same federal regulations, the state regulations for businesses vary from state to state. This tends to make things a little complicated, particularly if you are new to starting a business. Unfortunately, a failure to abide by these policies doesn’t just render your business status questionable, but it also puts you at risk of prosecution so it’s important that you have the proper guidance from an experienced business law attorney from the get-go.
At Goldberg Law Group, our attorneys are well educated in everything you need to know about starting up a business and ensuring that your current business is compliant with current federal and state laws. So, whether you are starting from scratch and chasing the dream of owning your own company, we can help. If you’re buying an existing business that needs some tuning up, we can help. If you’re simply taking a look into your existing business and have questions about legal compliance, we can help! You never need to feel uncertain when discussing your business needs with our attorneys, no matter what challenge you are facing. We are a high-quality law firm that brings Wall Street-level legal services to individuals and businesses with the personal attention and accessibility offered by a small law firm.
If you’re asking yourself how an attorney practicing business law can help your company, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many small business owners, in particular, know that they should have commercial legal representation in the wings, yet they aren’t quite sure why. So, allow us to explain…
The primary focus of an attorney who practices business law is to help you protect your business assets and interests. You need someone on your side who understands the world of corporate law and who can represent you and protect your company should the need ever arise and this is what our business lawyers do.
When disputes arise in a business setting, things can get very costly very quickly and that can spell the end of a large company, let alone a small business or entrepreneur. While a full-blown court case is sometimes the best resolution to a problem, there are other more affordable possibilities and our experienced business lawyers can help you to determine which of these solutions is right for you, your company, and the situation at hand.
Not every legal case fits perfectly into a cookie cutter mold. If your small business faces a lawsuit but has unique needs in any aspect of the case, our business attorneys can sit down with you and help you to establish the best way to approach for the most favorable outcome.
Some businesses try to forego hiring a business attorney and manage their legal cases themselves. Other businesses hide from cases and hope that they will go away if they’re ignored. In both of these instances, the final outcome could wind up costing you and your company much more than a loss in court, it could leave you with no business to go back to! With our reputable business attorneys, however, you can leave the legwork to the professionals and you won’t be left without a leg to stand on when it’s all said and done.
As a business owner, you juggle multiple roles daily, but one role that you simply won’t have time to balance in addition to your current workload is that of an attorney. When your business faces legal challenges, our licensed, experienced attorneys can step in and take the reins and leave you to running business as usual. This way you can focus on keeping your business doors open.
Lastly, when you hire our business law attorneys to represent you and your company, it means that you are prepared. Of course, not every business, small business, or entrepreneur is going to face legal challenges during their course, but to maintain a strong business presence if one of these challenges does come up, you need to be prepared!
