Small business owners in California need a corporate lawyer when they make decisions for their company or when they engage in an agreement with other companies. But many business people hesitate to call an attorney to ask for legal advice, because they fear that it can be very costly to do so. If you are an entrepreneur in Orange County or in Los Angeles, you can now have quick access to a corporate lawyer at a more affordable cost.
Small Businesses Need to Seek Legal Advice from a Corporate Lawyer
A lot of small businesses in California choose not to seek legal counsel because the hourly rate of a competent corporate lawyer is very expensive. The following are the chief reasons why your company needs to hire a business attorney:
1. The Lack of Legal Counsel Can Cause a Small Business to Fail
In a recent interview we conducted with over 400 entrepreneurs in Orange County, we found that the majority of them are hesitant to call a lawyer for counsel when making decisions and transactions. The usual reason is the fear of the cost.
The common result of small businesses not seeking an attorney’s advice is that they end up taking too many legal risks. When they face legal problems later on, it becomes very expensive to fix. Avoid costly legal issues in the future by consulting a competent business lawyer today.
2. Evaluating Legal Risks are Best Performed by a Business Attorney
Businesses save money in the short run when they avoid seeking an attorney. But this is a risky decision because entrepreneurs are rarely able to assess the legal risks of the decisions and transactions they make. A proficient business lawyer is more capable of evaluating these risks.
Business people can help protect their company from potential legal problems by seeking the counsel of a competent corporate attorney. Sound legal advice should be sought when they make decisions, especially those related to workplace issues, legal documents, liability concerns, tax responsibilities, business entity problems, and corporate record maintenance matters.
Cost-Effective Legal Advice from a Competent Business Attorney
Calling a corporate lawyer to discuss your company can be really costly. Generally, the attorneys in Orange County and Los Angeles charge an average of $400 dollars per hour. It’s because of these hourly rates that business people decide to call lawyers only when they feel it’s absolutely necessary.

We created this service to provide business owners with easy access to a lawyer at a regular basis.

A Recent Case of an Entrepreneur Engaging in a Risky Business Agreement
A client recently came to us for help. Their company was offered an opportunity to be a distributor of products that were created and developed by a small manufacturing company. The client grabbed the opportunity and made a deal with the manufacturer on a handshake. They did not consult with a lawyer regarding the transaction agreement because they wanted to avoid the costs of hiring a corporate attorney.
To engage in a business agreement on a mere handshake instead of having complete legal paperwork was a risky and reckless move. After months of hard work in marketing and distributing the product, the manufacturer suddenly decided that it no longer needed the distributor. This unexpected change of mind was massively damaging to the client.
When the manufacturer withdrew from the agreement, the client lost hundreds of thousands of dollars in marketing expenses, not to mention all the money that they would earn from the sale of the products that were already in the marketplace. When the client came to us for help, it was already too late to save the money lost, and the only option available for them was to file an expensive lawsuit.
This case is a good example why it’s imperative to consult with a corporate lawyer before engaging in any business agreement or transaction. If the client sought us at the beginning of the deal, we could have drafted the proper legal documents to bind and protect their agreement. A contract constructed by a competent lawyer could have prevented the problems that they are now facing,
