HIRING A SMALL BUSINESS LAWYER FOR YOUR CONSULTING BUSINESS
As a small business lawyer, I am so thrilled and honored to be the featured guest blogger this week on Leah Roman’s blog! Thank you, Leah Roman, MPH, MCHES, for this opportunity. I hope everyone will understand the benefits of hiring a lawyer for your public health consulting business after reading this. Though the piece appears on a blog for public health consultants, it is good advice for any small enterprise.
In this piece, you will find out how much money I recommend to budget for attorney fees, and strategies to find attorneys with reasonable rates. You will also learn about the “red flags” business lawyers are trained to find in your consulting contracts. For the full piece, please check out Leah’s blog on her site, Roman Public Health Consulting LLC.
Here’s a snippet from the post:
“Engaging a lawyer at the outset that will get to know you personally has two benefits. First of all, they will learn about you and your business and will therefore be able to craft a document that is specific to you. Attorneys are also trained to read legal documents with a more critical eye to what is best for you. The attorney becomes your advocate. Secondly, you begin to establish a relationship with your attorney that will build on itself and hopefully last a long time.“
