When And Why You Need An Attorney For Your Business

Why You Need A Lawyer For Your Business

Nick Heimlich Law works with business owners to help move their early to mid-stage companies forward. The head of our law firm is a prominent commercial litigation attorney in San Jose. Our team offers legal advocacy and corporate advisory for individuals, startups, and small businesses.

In general, we suggest that all new business owners contact an attorney early on. A sole proprietorship is simpler to launch than a partnership, corporation, S corporation, or an LLC. The four latter types require that you register your company with the state, which can be overwhelming. The paperwork is complicated, and an error or omission can cost you a lot of time and money. With our proven record of success and business litigation expertise, you can be assured that you’re starting your business right, allowing you to focus more on setting up your business worry-free. Nick Heimlich Law in San Jose offers a broad spectrum of services ranging from the business formation (filing legal requirements, reviewing documents, etc.) to business disputes (breach of contracts, trademark, fraud, etc.). 

Why Nick Heimlich Law

A great deal of time, energy, and money is put into starting a business, and it only makes sense to protect it. Our firm offers you preventative assistance to avert a legal crisis before it occurs. Furthermore, as your business grows, your need for legal services grows with it. Whether it’s incorporation paperwork, lease documents, or potential legal structures, it is vital to have a seasoned and knowledgeable attorney review it.  We can also advise on how to properly pay employees, including wage and hour rules in California.  These rules get quite complicated and can result in significant monetary penalties if not complied with.

There are numerous risks involved when running a small business. You can find yourself in litigation issues with customers, employees, landlords, vendors, etc. Our team of attorneys has decades of experience defending our clients in the San Jose area and has won countless litigation cases for small business owners and clients.

A lawsuit of any kind can result in a financial disaster for any business regardless of size. Small businesses, in particular, are the most vulnerable because they typically do not have the capital to weather an unexpected expense. Our team of experienced lawyers will not only help you prevent a legal problem, but we have experience in lawsuits should there be court litigation. 

Running a business comes with its challenges – don’t let legal issues be one of them. We cannot stress enough how crucial it is to hire a firm with experience on its corner.
