    Six Qualities to Look for in a Business Lawyer

    Six Qualities to Look For in a Business Lawyer, by GDP in Phoenix AZ
    In any business, there may be a time when you need a lawyer. Some business decisions could have some heavy legal ramifications, and a lawyer can help you before you get into a sticky situation. When finding the right lawyer for your business, start by asking trusted friends, family and business associates for recommendations. Here are some qualities to look for in a lawyer that could help you pick the right one for your business.

    • Experience.Having the right experience is crucial. Look for someone who has dealt with litigation in your particular field, or has experience working with small businesses.
    • Communication Ability. Your lawyer will need to explain complicated legal principles to you quickly and efficiently. Look for a lawyer who takes the time to explain things in terms you will understand, and makes sure that you are on the same page.
    • Availability. You need someone who will respond to your emails and return calls in a timely manner. If you need an emergency meeting, can you count on your attorney to work you into his or her schedule?
    • Chemistry. Though this is a business relationship, you want to find a lawyer that you get along with. Having good chemistry together will help ensure that you are on the same page, and can discuss opposing views when stress levels may be running high.
    • Understanding.  You need a lawyer who is willing to learn about and understand your business goals. This is the person who is going to help you through difficult and stressful situations, and he or she will need to make sure that you are doing everything correctly and legally, while sympathizing.
    • Affordability with your situation. The truth is that no lawyer is inexpensive. But lawyer fees vary widely, so look for someone whose fees you are comfortable with. He or she should have clear bills and should be able to give you reasonable estimates. Be careful not to choose a lawyer based solely on their hourly rate. You will probably find that the best lawyer for you isn’t the one with the cheapest hourly rate.

    Every Mesa business can benefit from having a lawyer, and it is best not to wait until you really need a lawyer to find one. Ask people you trust for recommendations, and then use these qualities to help determine if a particular lawyer is the right one for your business. We are happy to answer any other questions you may have about hiring a business lawyer. Give us a call today.
