Unfortunately for many business owners, law and business don’t always mix well. Many business owners grow tired of trying to figure out how to protect themselves from liability while at the same time working to run a profitable business. Additionally, some attorneys can be out of touch with the needs of business owners. Catalyst is here to help.
Here are a few of the questions we oftentimes hear from business owners:
How do I collect money from people who owe my business money or breached a contract? Are people who work for me independent contractors or employees? What is their tax status? Are my employee handbooks and manuals comprehensive? Am I shielded from business-threatening liability? I’m thinking of bringing in a business partner, so how do I protect myself and my business? How can I draft a business plan to attract potential investors?
These are common questions business owners ask themselves everyday. Usually, there are only two options for business owners facing these questions: 1) Ignore the question and cross their fingers that a problem won’t present itself, or 2) Hire a lawyer working on an hourly fee. Since many businesses believe they can not afford to call an attorney due to the cost, most businesses revert to option 1 and ignore the questions.
