How To Meet With Your Business Attorney

Full Video Transcript

Hiring a business attorney is a great option when you're considering starting a business, looking to expand a business, or simply need some guidance on maintaining your operations. Before you seek out a business attorney, you should ask yourself the following questions and organize your documents in order to make the consultation as productive as possible. First, your attorney will want to know whether you currently have a business or are contemplating starting one. If you have a business, how is it formed? Is it a general partnership, limited partnership, a corporation, or something else? Bring founding documents and any other previously prepared legal documents with you. Finally, if you have a business, know exactly how many employees and contractors you have working for you. Remember, anything you tell your attorney is confidential, so make sure you disclose all matters even remotely related to your business.
