I believe that your relationship with your attorney should be based upon your knowledge that he can add value to your business.
This means he must add value to your business by:
1. Alerting you to potential areas of exposure and dispute;
2. Helping you to observe legal formalities such as
confidentiality and employment agreements,
review of contract and “terms and conditions” language;
3. Working proactively to diffuse major disputes, to litigate only as a last resort, and to always posture disputes with an eye towards resolving them, rather than blowing them out of proportion;
4. And, in each instance, being an aggressive advocate of your best interests, whether that means taking a dispute to court, to arbitration, to mediation, or to our conference room to attempt to “mend fences” with a potential plaintiff or defendant.
If your attorney adds value to your business, you seek him out before you make a major commitment (such as signing a contract, hiring a key employee or making a major purchase), rather than after.
I hope that you will give me the opportunity to demonstrate to you how the right attorney can add value to your business through proper planning and by preventing or minimizing disputes and mistakes which can wipe out years of your hard work and effort.
