When you start a business there are two professionals that you are going to need from the start. One is an accountant and the other is a lawyer. An accountant is obvious, but you may not realize the importance of having a corporate attorney for your business from a very early start.

A good corporate attorney will provide you with assistance for almost every aspect of your company. This includes copyright advice, formal business incorporation, basic zoning compliance, and of course any lawsuits and liability.

It is best to have a lawyer for your business before you are being sued. Once there is a lawsuit against your company you are going to pay even more to get the problem resolved if you do not already have a lawyer on your team ready to go to legal battle for you.

The most important thing to remember is that you want a lawyer that specializes in business law. A firm or attorney that knows about zoning laws, trademark laws, and other issues that arise when you are starting out in business are essential to have in your back pocket just in case anything goes wrong and you need legal help.
