Entrepreneurs and fast-growth companies understand the benefits of having on hand an experienced attorney, one with intimate knowledge of their business and a firm grasp on the complexities of state and federal laws, to guide their day-to-day decision-making. The problem is that many companies, whether they are startups or mid-sized organizations, feel that full-time— or even part-time— dedicated legal counsel is a luxury they can’t afford. As a result, they often sign binding contracts or navigate blindly through the maze of rules and regulations affecting their business while simply hoping for the best. The liability they incur and the profit opportunities they miss can end up costing them their business.
