When they tell you to get a lawyer, you disagree. You say things like who lawyer epp? Ahhh, lawyer ke? I cannot afford one ooh. If at all I need to draft a contract I can download one. Lol!
The truth is that small businesses just like large corporations need trusted legal advice to grow and prevent future complications and illegalities.
The services of a business lawyer include incorporating the business, drafting and reviewing contracts, providing advice on intellectual property rights, giving guidance on corporate governance, attending to compliance and regulatory needs, advising on commercial transactions including those relating to finance, representing the businesses in litigation or alternative dispute resolution among others.
Understandably, resources may be limited so it is advisable to get a consultant who can attend to the legal needs of your business at a reasonable fee.
As a promoter, it may be helpful to negotiate an affordable annual retainer. The contents of a basic legal retainer will be discussed later.
Until next time, remember you need your own lawyer who understands your company needs. Stop running to your young "Barrister" niece or cousin for osho free service each time you get into a mess. Many of such disasters are avoidable.... In Black and White
