Do you feel that you should just be able to trust your lawyer to take all of the legal steps in your business? Is dealing with the legal risks in your business something that you don’t want to have to consider? So often we have business owners come to us after they have encountered a problem and wondered why they didn’t take steps to prevent the problem from arising. Truthfully they ignore the problems in their business thinking that their lawyer will tell them if there are any problems with their business.
This is a dangerous path to take and is a bit like owning a house or a business without any insurance in place. In this article we will discuss the two main reasons why you shouldn’t rely on your lawyer to just identify these issues.
n any situation there are things that you know and that your advisers know. It doesn’t matter how long you have had the relationship with your lawyer there will be aspects of your business that your lawyer doesn’t know about. There are also going to be areas of the law that you don’t know could be a problem. The Business Legal Lifeycycle Legal Risk Assessment is designed to identify these unknown unknowns in your business so that you can reduce your legal risks.
Often the investment of being proactive can seem like a lot at the time but the cost of not dealing with your legal risks before they arise is so much more. You need to consider the cost of obtaining legal advice as an investment in your future, just like insurance is an investment in helping you if there is a future problem with your business. The reason that I developed the Business Legal Lifecycle was due to my frustration with the fact that so many people could prevent problems before they arise.
One business owner nearly lost $2million of his own money because he didn’t want to invest in legal advice. Another ex-partnership lost over $1million of other people’s money all because they didn’t invest early in their business. When you shift your mindset to legal fees being an investment rather than a cost then you will see the benefits in obtaining legal advice.
