How a Business Lawyer Can Help Start Your Small Business

Published on June 14th, 2021

Starting up a small business can be overwhelming. There are so many different moving parts you have to take care of and want to make sure nothing slips through the cracks so your ideas can be executed seamlessly. One of the most noteworthy parts of starting your business is dealing with the legal side. You may be completely unfamiliar or unaware of what goes on in that sect of running a business, which is why hiring a business law attorney can be game changing.

Making the Decisions

In the early stages of decision making, before your business is even open, there are many questions you must ask yourself: where you want the business to be, the name, the tag line, the logo, and more. However you may not be aware that some of your decisions could get you into some legal trouble. Are there zoning issues where you want your business to be? Is the name already taken or is there something too similar to it? Is the tagline already used? Is the logo closely resembling another company’s logo? With a small business attorney, you can feel confident that all your decisions will be smart and informed ones.


Especially when it comes to money, you want to make sure everything is in order for you to be successful! Running into legal or organizational issues with finance is never ideal, so hiring a business attorney can prevent you from dealing with that. Starting a business will most likely involve opening at least one bank account and applying for credit cards to gain good credit.
A business attorney can guide you through all the important financial decisions when it comes to bank accounts, financial goals, credit and credit cards, and more. Since it’s highly advised to keep separate accounts for your business and personal finances, an attorney can help you organize and keep track of just your business matters.


Taxes. Not a business owner’s – or anyone’s – favorite word. Your small business will definitely be taxed, and the last thing you want is to run into any local, state, or federal tax violations. You also want to make sure you don’t face any double taxation. A business lawyer will know the ins and outs of taxes on a small business, so any and all questions you have about them will be able to get answered.


While not guaranteed, it’s not uncommon for a small or new business to deal with some sort of legal dispute with a bigger, more established corporation. You don’t want to get stuck fending for yourself against a well-known corporation if issues arise. Having a lawyer by your side who will fight long and hard for you to win will make all the difference in your legal battles. Sometimes even saying that you have an attorney representing you keeps others from sueing or getting you in trouble in the first place.
