to make the best legal decisions possible.
Consider these 3 scenarios:
1.You are approved by a big-box retailer and your attorney gives you the thumbs-up on a contract that says
you must manufacture up to 2,000 units a day. However, your facility can only handle 1,000 units a day, which
your attorney doesn’t know because he’s not your partner. Approval of such a contract means you are
obligated to produce 2,000 units a day and necessary office space and man-power are not in the profit of the
contract. You would be in danger of facing bankruptcy and risk never again contracting with a major supplier if
you fail to meet the terms of the contract.
2. In a recent survey, debt collection was the most frequently cited legal problem with 22 percent of small
business owners. Additionally, more and more business owners were finding themselves victims of lawsuits
because they mistakenly committed offenses that resulted in unlawful debt collection. Non- compliant debtors,
hiring attorneys that may charge more than the debt is worth and generating costly letters to recuperate your
losses are just a few of the obstacles debt collection creates for small to midsize businesses.
3. As a defendant in a lawsuit you want to disclose to your attorney everything you know about your case.
With traditional attorneys that charge on an hourly basis you can encounter large costs with just trying to form
the foundation of your case. In addition to disclosure, you can also find the time and cost increase due to lack
of communication and untimely execution of legal maneuvers. As a business owner, you have lost 3 of your
most valuable assets that are best employed in the management of your business, time, energy and money.
