Whether you are opening a new business or have an established business, working with a business attorney can help you to reach your professional goals. Listed below are some of the many ways a business attorney can help your business:
One of the first and most important decisions you will have to make when opening a business is choosing what type of structure you want for your company. According to the IRS, the most common types of business are sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, and S corporation. A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a business structure allowed by state statute. Legal and tax considerations enter into selecting a business structure. Working with a business lawyer can help you through the process of incorporation to ensure your business has a strong foundation.
Protecting Intellectual Property
Your business name, logos, products, and other critical components are uniquely yours. In order to protect your intellectual property, you will want to file for a copyright. Working with an experienced business attorney can help you to identify what business processes are eligible for patent protection, file for copyrights when applicable, and take the proper steps for trademark registrations.
Additionally, business lawyers work with companies to create privacy policies to protect their intellectual property as well as their client’s information. In some cases, you may be legally required to protect the personal information of your clients. Working with an experienced attorney can ensure you are in compliance with all privacy laws.
Ensure you are protecting your intellectual property and the privacy of your clients when you work with attorney Christy K. Brown to avoid legal issues in the future.

In competitive industries, drafting non-disclosure agreements is one of the most effective ways to protect your business ideas and trade secrets. When you work with a business lawyer they can work with you to draft and review non-disclosure agreements for your employees or the business you work with. Proactive planning is the best way to avoid having your sensitive information stolen. Schedule an appointment with our legal team today.

One misstep when creating these employment contracts can cost you money, time, and more. Work with an attorney before hiring anyone to ensure you are prepared for this step of expanding your business.
