Why Should I Hire An Attorney?
Protecting Your Bottom Line is Paramount
Every successful business has an attorney to protect their interest. Whether it be outside counsel or internal, successful business owners recognize that it is more expensive and risky to wait until a dispute arises. Oftentimes, having an attorney to oversee how the day-to-day business operations can legally impact the company is what successful CEO’s do.
Does Your Client Have Counsel Protecting Them? The answer is more than likely “yes”. As for contractors doing business with the federal government, you can rest assured that agencies have their attorney sitting right down the hallway. With the complex and abundance of regulations that govern federal procurement, contractors without counsel on board create a great risk (Watson & Associates has introduced affordable monthly retainers for large and small businesses who are struggling with the current economy)
Your Company is Probably Conducting Business Under Contracts: Commercial services are products are performed via contracts. You are obligated to perform under specified terms and conditions; your clients perform under the contracts you provide to them. Do you understand the terms and conditions as an attorney would? Are you protected? Most people wait until an dispute occurs to then study the terms and conditions. This is too late. Others copy and paste generic contracts from the Internet. This can be the kiss of death when large-dollar contracts are at risk. Always have an attorney to protect your rights before signing or drafting your contracts.
Regulatory Concerns: Each business is governed by some type of regulation. This can start from the basic LLC to a government contractor doing business with the federal government. Federal procurement carries serious penalties for non-compliance or in the event of termination. Seriously consider hiring cost-effective counsel to protect your bottom line.
