      Choosing a business entity

      There are several types of legal entity structures available to entrepreneurs when starting a business – the most common types include being a sole proprietorship, limited liability company (“LLC”) or a Corporation. New business owners must be aware of certain considerations, such as liability protection, tax implications, record-keeping, and capital raising opportunities. Other factors to consider that may require legal guidance such as Intellectual Property considerations, marketing strategy, and how to protect the business and assets best.

      Drafting agreements and legal document preparation

      For a business to operate as a legal business entity, it requires business agreements and contracts. Partnership agreements, Employment contracts, and agreements with third-party vendors are among the most commonly used contracts to define business responsibilities and specify legal remedies if agreed-upon conditions are not met. Drafting or reviewing a contract can be an intimidating process, and often boilerplate language, while essential, cannot meet the needs for every business agreement or transaction.

      Advising on Legal Compliance

      Today’s financial industry and markets are always changing. Companies face the complexities of heightened regulations and intricate disclosure requirements. At Jacko Law Group, our San Diego business attorneys help firms navigate their compliance challenges, such as reporting and disclosure obligations, cybersecurity, and overall fiduciary duties.

      Assisting with Mergers and Acquisitions

      Strategic planning begins years before the merger, acquisition, or transition. Whether you’re forming a new business entity, planning for a merger or acquisition, succession or exit planning, our business lawyers in San Diego [AB1] have decades of combined experience and offer valuable M&A experience and specialized guidance to ensure that clients are better able to navigate the significant changes when consolidating businesses with confidence and success.

      How to Choose the Right Business Attorney?

      It’s all about asking the right questions when you evaluate different options.

      Ask your potential lawyer about:

      What’s your experience in working with a business like mine?

      Finding the right business attorney in San Diego is important because to provide effective counsel, a lawyer and legal team will need a solid understanding business plan and strategy to provide specialized guidance based on knowledge and experience working with businesses and clients like you. When you work with the right business and legal partner who truly cares and understands your business, it can alleviate the learning curve regarding the ins-and-outs of the business and accelerate the desired outcomes.

      Do you have any conflict of interest with my business?

      Inquiring about conflicts of interest is critical, as firms may be unable to serve potential clients effectively or how they need to be served if there is a conflict. The law firm must run a conflict check when looking for the right Business Lawyer in San Diego. Still, it is important to be aware if there is a conflict with any other companies or clients that the lawyer or firm has, especially within the industry. Review the firm mission, vision, and values – to better understand who they are, whether their brand or company is values-based, and if those values align with your company values.

      Look at an attorney’s references and reputation.

      It is important to work with a Business Attorney in San Diego that is established and reputable – or known for delivering exceptional results for their clients. No one wants to partner with a brand that doesn’t meet the service expectations or that their quality of service doesn’t reflect the price. A potential client’s business is important as it may have taken them years to establish. In engaging an attorney, a business owner is choosing to trust the legal and business acumen of a reputable attorney. Working with an established attorney who provides quality legal services with a solid reputation in your community and industry is important.

      Potential clients may want to consider reviews and testimonials on various websites, such as Google, Yelp, Avvo, and more. Also, if interested, potential clients may look to see whether the attorney has been recently published or otherwise recognized for their work.

      Does this attorney align with my communication style?

      It is important to work with a business lawyer that communicates effectively with their clients. Both legal and business decisions can be complicated and potentially taxing on the organization. If legal counsel isn’t communicative in the desired method – critical communications and key business decisions can fall through the cracks.

      When assessing an attorney’s communication style, a potential client can inquire and identify the attorney’s style by asking directly. Otherwise, reviewing available communications to include their firm’s website, industry publications, marketing materials, social media campaigns, and other thought leadership may be helpful. The ability to assess how the attorney has made themselves accessible to the public will reflect the methods and capabilities of service for the client.

      The right attorney will do their best to communicate with clients in the way that works best for that client while maintaining appropriate professional boundaries.

      Ask about an attorney’s fee structure.

      Whether an attorney’s services fit within your budget is essential to establishing a long-term partnership with a business lawyer in San Diego. For example, a partner at a larger firm may be available; however, the rates will vary, and the fee structure may not be feasible for a small business or firm just starting or on the verge of growth.

      When looking for a business attorney in San Diego that aligns with your needs and budget, potential clients will want to evaluate the team and the legal services’ quality.
