If you are just starting out in your business, you may have a few worries on your mind. These include wondering whether you need a good business lawyer for your company. The biggest problem with many people in your situation is that there is a certain stigma associated with hiring a lawyer right off the bat. The general assumption is that the high rates charged by lawyers can’t be afforded when your company is just starting out. You barely have capital to cover operational costs, after all! This leads to many small companies hiring their lawyers only when they are needed. This could be costing your company more money than you think.
