Building a business and keeping it operating successfully are no easy tasks. As a business owner, you have a multitude of concerns that you need to deal with on a daily basis, and the thought of addressing legal issues on top of everything else can often seem overwhelming. However, ignoring these matters or putting them off until a later date can result in serious problems, such as liability issues, tax obligations or contractual disputes, or, worse, you could find yourself in a lawsuit. By working with an experienced attorney to address business law concerns, you can avoid legal problems and can build a business strategy that will help you achieve your goals.
The Illinois business lawyers of SBK Law Group have provided legal help and representation to clients in a wide variety of business-related matters. We will work with you to build a complete understanding of your business and determine the best strategies that will provide for your ongoing success.
With our attorneys on your side, you can address any current legal issues while ensuring that your business is prepared for future growth. We can serve as general counsel for your business and assist with business law matters such as the following:
In some cases, agreements between your business and other people or organizations may be somewhat informal. While written agreements, forms downloaded from online sources or even verbal agreements may be sufficient in some cases, these agreements may not always be enforceable if disputes should arise. By working with an attorney, you can ensure that your contracts contain terms that will protect your rights, and you can be sure that you will know how to proceed if you need to take action to enforce a contract’s terms.
If your business becomes involved in a legal dispute with another person or organization, you may need to resolve these matters in court through litigation. However, the litigation process can be costly and time-consuming, and you may be able to use alternative dispute resolution methods to resolve these disputes more quickly and efficiently. In some cases, you may be able to negotiate a settlement or use mediation or arbitration to address matters without the need to enter the courtroom.
The legal fees for business law services will often depend on the amount of time and work needed to address certain issues. In some cases, flat fees may apply to certain services, while in others, an attorney will charge an hourly rate for the amount of time worked on a case. Typically, more complex cases, such as those involving business litigation, will result in higher fees. Our firm offers free consultations, and we will explain the fees we charge and the amount you can expect to pay for certain services.
