3 Reasons your business needs a commercial lawyer

Within business legal matters and associated complications can arise at any point, and so it is important that you are prepared for when this happens and can keep your business, employees and assets protected.

Having a business lawyer and forming a relationship with them will help you keep on track of any legal issues that you may be up against.

We’ve highlighted a few of the top reasons you should consider hiring a commercial lawyer:

A lawyer will give you an upper and helping hand

If you are threatened with legal action, having a lawyer on your team who knows the industry can really help.

If they already have the knowledge and the experience of dealing with legal matters within a business environment, and potentially within your industry, they will be able to hit ground running and already have it in the back of their mind how they can respond and what areas of the law to delve into.  

A lawyer can make sure any contracts and agreements are solid

Within any business, there is a lot of drawing up contracts or other documents be this with staff, suppliers or clients.

Whilst some documents are easy to create, and there are lots of templates online these days, there can come a time when businesses will need a lawyer to look over documents and contracts to check the content and ensure that the agreements are lawful, fair and solid.

This will protect you and any company or individuals that you are dealing with in any capacity. A good business lawyer will also be able to flag up any problems that you weren’t aware of, which can save you excess money and stress.

They can identify need for further specialised assistance

A business lawyer will be able to identify areas where you may need additional support or training, for example with tax and insurance matters or in areas of law that they are not specialised in (employment law for example). If you own a business, you should always have a lawyer on hand. This does not necessarily mean that you need a member who is in-house and full-time, instead you could opt for legal counsel on a retainer basis or ad-hoc basis instead.
