A common difficulty we’ve noticed among new business owners is the apprehension to admit they don’t know what they don’t know. Understanding the many complexities of business law is a burden no entrepreneur wants to bear. This is why a business lawyer should be an entrepreneur’s best friend. However, the search for the right business lawyer can be daunting and knowing what to ask may be the difference between a successful and a failed business.

Below are some of the questions you should ask when searching for a business attorney to represent your business


How Much Experience Do You Have This Industry?

Ask each attorney you speak with have previously worked with similar companies in your industry and ask for some references. A reputable business attorney will be happy to provide references.

Who Will Be Handling My Work?

Your attorney will be handling some of your business’s most sensitive information so it’s important to understand their work process. It’s not uncommon for business attorneys to have assistants, however, be sure to ask who will handle which tasks.

How Quickly Do You Respond to Clients?

This is a great way to know what to expect once you start working with your business attorney. Many attorneys will also funnel communications through a paralegal or assistant so be sure to ask about their preferred methods of communications as well.
