Quatela Chimeri, PLLC


Any time you're starting a business or stepping into a new partnership, it's crucial to consult with a business lawyer. Along with these business changes, there are many others that can also require the help of a law office, as we discussed in a previous post.

While there are many reasons you may need a business lawyer, finding the right one can feel like a daunting task. Take the time to look into several different lawyers and sit down with them for consultations. You should treat these consultations much like you would the interview of a potential employee and see what the business lawyer has to offer you. The following are questions that should be asked during each consultation.

Have you ever worked with clients in my industry?

Every industry has different problems and concerns that may arise for a new company. It's important that any business lawyer you hire understand many of these concerns or be willing to learn the details of your particular industry in order to best serve your specific needs.

How do you feel about educating me about this process?

This simple question can tell you a lot about a business lawyer. You want to work with a lawyer who is willing to present you with options and talk you through the process. You want them to act like a teacher, helping you understand the different variables involved in your legal proceedings.

How do you charge for your legal services?

There are more lawyers to choose from now than ever before, which gives individuals more buying power, but many services for companies come at a flat rate. It's important to know what a lawyer's rates are for all the services that you will be needing.
