Small Business - Big Decisions
Many things make the difference between success and failure, but good decisions based on good information are key to a successful small business. Business problems usually occur because of a lack of information leading to an uninformed decision. Uninformed decisions can lead to additional expense, sleepless nights, uncertainty, or even litigation.
In many cases, these problems could have been avoided if the decision-maker had gotten some legal advice before making the decision - before a lease or contract was signed - before an employee was fired - before a business decisions involving legal consequences was made.
A little bit of legal advice may have prevented the problems, but small businesses don’t get that advice, do they? And cost is the reason why. On top of all the other expenses of running a business, legal advise never seems to be a priority until it's too late. There is always another expense that seems more important because legal advise is so expensive, right? Not now.
