Some big deal transactions are obvious to involve a lawyer, such as buying or selling a business. Other contracts are less intuitive, such as leasing office space where it may seem like a realtor can help with legal issues. However, a realtor is paid on commission and his interests do not align with your own. Getting a better deal with your landlord can pay dividends in the long run. Plus, even if you own your own building, it is best to have a lease between your passive real estate (owned by an LLC) and your active business (owned by a separate LLC) to provide an extra degree of asset protection.
Even matters such as hiring a consultant can benefit from a lawyer’s review, which can ensure the contract requires the performance you expect from the other party.
Today’s business owners understand the risk of litigation and the need to take measures to avoid ambiguity and lawsuits later. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Paper is cheap and lawsuits are expensive.
