The purpose of the article is to give you some information on Legal and Law-related Business Consultants. Legal services are a fast growing industry in the United States. While most businesses are not in this field, it is a good idea to at the very least have a legal and law-related business consultant on hand for your business. Who knows what sort of legal related business services you might need over time! That is why it is smart to pay for a business consultant now, rather than having to pay for one later down the road.
The first thing you should understand is that not all legal and law related business consultants are actually lawyers. Lawyers must go to law school and actually pass the bar in the state that they are licensed in. However, business consultants simply need to open up an office saying that they are a legal business consultant. They are not given the same privileges as a lawyer and cannot argue for you in court. If you admit that you did something against the law, your legal business consultant can be called to testify against you at a trial.
That being said, legal and law-related business consultants are still a great thing to have. Most of them are going to be lawyers who have experience in the area or topic of business that you are in. For example, as a doctor, you are required to have malpractice insurance.
You can have a malpractice business consultant who is a lawyer that deals with malpractice cases all of the time! That way you will be covered just in case anything ever does happen, and you will be able to get a lawyer very quickly. Best of all, your discussion will be covered under attorney client privilege.
Now that you have garnered yourself a legal or law-related consultant, you are going to be able to see what they can do for your business. They might be able to provide you advice on if you are breaking any laws at your business. They also will be able to tell you if your future product/service is against laws or regulations in your state or of the federal government.
Also, if you are about to be sued, they could become your lawyer or suggest a good one (if you ever need good lawyers in Atlanta, give us a call, my Brother’s firm is great!) They also can tell you laws that could result in you being fined for certain actions that are illegal as a business. Overall, they are just a great type of business consultant to have for your peace of mind!
