If you are a business owner, you know how important it is to have your business operating smoothly in terms of overall legal matters and compliance. And, as a person operating a business, you may have several attorneys on your contacts list to help with different legal matters when they come up. For instance, you may have a separate attorney for employment matters, business litigation, contract disputes, and collection issues. However, having a different attorney for each legal matter may not be ideal. If various conflicts with a dispute are occurring, a business owner may be consumed by the process of communicating with all attorneys involved and possibly getting them all on the same page of a dispute. But, having an outside general counsel to help, handle or manage your business affairs can save you from the headache of dealing with different types of attorneys who work within the business and commercial sector.

Developing a business is something that many people dream of but only few actually go through with. The formation of a business is a critical time and for the longevity of the business it should be done correctly. Business formation can also include the legal aspects when a business is restructuring for any number of reasons.
Landlord And Tenant Disputes
Disputes between commercial landlords and tenants are a very common occurrence. Disagreements arise over matters regarding services that people failed to deliver, nonpayment of rent, and wrongful eviction. In many cases, the parties involved are unable to resolve their disputes alone. It often takes a legal professional to help negotiate a satisfactory resolution for one or both of the parties.
Shareholders, or stockholders, are people who legally own one or more share of a private or public corporation’s stock. There are many types of disputes that can arise between shareholders, including disputes against the corporation issuing the stock, disputes with shareholders who are believed to be breaching fiduciary duty, and disputes involving minority shareholder rights.
When running a business, insurance can be relied up on in difficult situations. For a company that has been paying each month they can be surprised to find out just how difficult it may be to gain compensation. Insurance disputes are a common problem that many face and legal action is often necessary.
Entrepreneurs And Small Business Owners
Those who are looking to pursue a business endeavor must first be sure that their legal rights are protected. Hiring a business attorney from the outset will ensure that your business has the greatest chance of success and will help to avoid contract disputes and other serious legal issues in the future.
