Not everyone loves lawyers.
But lawyers who look out for your best interests are worth their weight in gold. And their hourly rate.
Business owners often donâ€™t get to hear the truth of their situation. For instance, who in the company is going to go tell the boss, â€śhey, its time for you to pay attention to your future and ours. What are you going to do the day you get too tired to run this place?â€ť
And unless an owner has a business partner who is suddenly facing challenging times ( or conflicts with you ), figuring out how the owner is going to get a return out of the blood, sweat and tears invested so it becomes gold in their bank account doesnâ€™t happen.
Whatâ€™s your lawyer talking to you about? Hereâ€™s someÂ good adviceÂ from Michelle Bomberger of Equinox Business Law and Dave Shapiro of Excell Puget Sound.
