Why Should I Hire a Corporate Lawyer?

Posted in:

Small Businesses hire Accountants and Insurance Agents at launch; a Corporate Lawyer should be hired the same way. When a Lawyer is hired after a legal issue is raised the problem can be much more difficult and costly to resolve. Hiring an experienced Corporate Lawyer at start up should protect you from these costly and difficult legal issues. Our Corporate Team has the foresight to help protect you from legal issues that may arise from any of the following:

  • Disputes with suppliers or Customers – Liability issues
  • Internal organization of the business or corporation
  • Rights and duties of Shareholders and Directors
  • General contracts and agreements
  • Employee contracts and agreements
  • Employees and employment contracts
  • Collection of outstanding accounts and receivables
  • Shareholder’s agreements
  • Dealing with government agencies – WCB, Licensing and Employment Standards
  • Renting commercial space and other leasing arrangements
  • Partnership Agreements and profit sharing arrangements
  • Civil litigation should the Company be drawn into a lawsuit

Corporate Law can be very complicated dependent on your Business Model and size and it is best to hire and build a relationship with your Lawyer before you need one. Our Corporate Team is ready to assist you in every phase of your business from initial start up to significant changes, dissolution and everything in-between.
