The Value of General Counsel for Your Business

Every year here in California, thousands of new businesses are formed. While many of them will close within the first two years of operation, some of them will go on to see great success. We live in an age unlike anything we’ve ever seen, with round-the-clock access to all the world’s information. Thanks to the internet, many entrepreneurs have a variety of tools that they can use to build their business, structure their management, deal with vendors and employees, and other aspects of commerce. So what sets the successful companies apart? These are the ones that take advantage of all of the online resources they want, but also acknowledge the value of professional legal counsel.

While you can learn a great deal from online research and free seminars, there is nothing that can replace a real person with real-world experience. Because there are so many different components to running a successful business, the importance of general counsel has never been greater. This kind of outsourced legal help and representation can take your company to new heights- something a free website cannot do. If you’re a small business owner, you can count on your general counsel to help you with things like:

  • Securing startup funding
  • Establishing business structure and initial filings
  • Resolving company disputes
  • Staying in government compliance
  • Protecting your intellectual property
  • Overseeing large commercial transactions
  • Providing financial advice, restructuring, or bankruptcy filing
  • Much more

Essentially, with general counsel, your enterprise can have access to world-class business attorneys in San Francisco, to help you with any and all of your legal needs. Too many people try to cut corners or “save money” by not hiring a lawyer when they are running a company, especially in the first couple of years, but this is a huge mistake. While there is a great wealth of knowledge available for free on the internet, much of it may not apply to your situation. And remember that laws are different in each state, or even each county, and that those laws are constantly changing.

If you want to make sure your assets are protected, and you’re always in compliance, an attorney is the best investment you can make. After all, it’s their job to stay up on the business regulations, and to have the skills needed to walk you through any legal process, from registering your trademarks, to filing a lawsuit against a competitor.

Don’t overlook the value of general counsel for your company. Reach out to us at Primum Law today, and ask for your free consultation to learn more.
