If you run your own business, you may not think of hiring a business lawyer as being high on your priority list. But there are several reasons you should want to get in touch with a San Diego business attorney who specializes in small businesses. Here are three of those reasons.

#1 Get Advice on Business Contracts and Agreements

Whether you are going to sign a contract with an employee, freelancer, or client, you should get help drafting and reviewing the documents. Other situations where you may want a contract or agreement professionally drafted or reviewed include lease agreements for property or equipment and estate planning documents dealing with business succession.

#2 Protecting Your Intellectual Property (IP)

Protecting your intellectual property can be the difference between success and failure for any size company, but especially so with a small business that needs a competitive advantage. A business lawyer can help you to secure trademarks, copyrights, and patents so a big corporation can’t take your ideas.

#3 Providing Protection to Personal Assets

One of the big concerns for a sole proprietor is that personal and business assets get tied up together. If you default on a business loan or have a tax issue, your house or car could be in jeopardy. A business lawyer can help you with business formation, such as creating an LLC to separate your business and personal assets.
