As with many areas of the law, providing advocacy and counsel to businesses requires variegated legal acumen. In the early phases of a business, there are often questions regarding what type of business entity will best suit the model, what types of licenses and permits are required, and questions related to financing or leases. For businesses that are going concerns, many have to upgrade their businesses legal services to keep pace with growing success, typically involving legal questions about employee manuals and policies, entering into contracts, protecting trademark and other IP, or changes to existing ownership structures. And, of course, there is always the possibility of litigation, either as plaintiff and defendant.
