If you are a business owner, it is essential that you have a reputable business attorney. Knowledge, experience, communication, business acumen, and accessibility are all qualities that are very important to you as a client. If, however, you are going back and forth between multiple attorneys who all seem to have the basic qualities you are looking for, then adding these traits to your list will help you narrow down your search so that you can find the California business attorney who is the best fit for your company.
Integrity and Honesty
When people talk about integrity and honesty in a business attorney, they are not talking about merely speaking the truth. That goes without saying. What you really want in a business attorney is somebody who is 100 percent straightforward with every bit of information they relay to you. Most business attorneys will sugarcoat or even neglect to disclose certain details because a client might find them distressing or alarming. This can actually harm you as a client because as a business owner, it is imperative that you are aware of everything so that you are able to safeguard your company.
Upward Mobility and Growth
The aim of any business is to expand and flourish. This means your ideal business attorney will demonstrate these qualities in their legal practice. If a particular attorney has been operating a solo practice for many years, it might be an indication that they do not have experience in many of the different elements of business law in which you might need advice.
Competence and Efficiency
For a business attorney to be able to offer their services at an affordable price, they will need to have procedures that they follow every step of the way. In business law, attorneys need to spend more time in advance recognizing possible uncertainties and hurdles than most other attorneys. Structuring their time this way helps them form a comprehensive strategy and circumvent possible issues that, if left unchecked, could cost you more in legal fees or jeopardize your business interests.
Adaptability to Other Areas of Business Law
Just as you would depend on your company’s accountant to deal with every aspect of its finances, you need to be able to depend on your business attorney whether you need advice in matters of contract law, corporate law, employment law, copyrights, trademarks, and business litigation.
Adhering to these basic guidelines could be the difference between losing your case and winning it. If you or your company are being sued or anticipate filing a suit of your own, Leiva Law Firm deals with a wide assortment of business litigation matters.
