How to Hire a Business Attorney?
While the nature and objectives of your business will determine the legal expertise that is most valuable to you, our Florida business litigation attorneys can provide specialized representation from the beginning, including drafting, reviewing, and finalizing agreements, and maintaining proper corporate records. We are also here to protect our clients during times of distress to prevent litigation, and aggressively fight for their position when moving the dispute inside the courtroom is their best course of action.
Here are a few tips to partner with a business law firm you can trust.
Get a Referral From a Legitimate & Trusted Source
Business owners often have a network of trusted friends, colleagues, and other professional relationships with individuals who can point them in the right direction when they are seeking partnerships with vendors, contractors, and even business attorneys.
Getting a referral from a reliable friend or attorney can maximize your chances of finding legal counsel who is competent, diligent, and trustworthy.
Do Your Research
With or without legal counsel recommendations, you are going to want to do your homework on the law firm you are choosing to partner with before you need their counsel.
Research each attorney and their law firms to understand their background, expertise, and how they can help you move your company forward.
Look for their specific practice area concentrations, and how they relate to your business. Review their educational background, years in practice, and any notable publications or transactions noted on their dossiers.
Most law firms also have a social media presence, including professional profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter, and are listed on their relevant state bar association websites to confirm their license to practice law, and whether they have had any disciplinary actions taken against them.
Look for the law firm or individual attorney’s Google reviews, or simply type their name into Google for a quick search that will reveal different angles of their personality and accomplishments.
Learn More During a Free Consultation
Once you have had the opportunity to research your potential legal partner, set up an initial consultation with your prospective counsel, so you can share the full scope of your legal needs.
If possible, you should conduct this first meeting in person, so you can understand how the business attorney can help you move your vision forward and establish that your expectations are aligned.
Clearly defining your company’s needs allows you to proceed with your attorney search in a more productive manner. We can help.
