When most people think of a small business, they envision a small “mom and pop” operation that doesn’t generate much in the way of revenue and has few employees. The reality is that the term ‘small business’ covers everything from the one horse operation all the way up to a business with in excess of a hundred employees and revenues in the millions of dollars.
The small businessman or woman can experience a plethora of problems beginning with the choice of entity, drafting and review of contracts forming the business relationships necessary for survival and perhaps dealing with those trying to take advantage of them by resort to the Courts or enforcing their contractual rights with regard to others who fail to perform.
I have spent decades representing small business owners in all kinds of matters. One thing I have learned during that time is that hiring a lawyer, generally does not make any money for the businessman. Sometimes the best the business owner can expect is to cut his or her losses. Why not retain a lawyer that has your best interests at heart and understands the financial ramifications of everything he does.
