You might consider consulting and working with a business attorney when…


… you start your business

A business attorney is familiar with the many legal considerations involved in the process of business formation. Get help in:

  1. Navigating and filling out all the forms and requirements of incorporation documents.
  2. Fully understanding the benefits and disadvantages of the legal structure you choose for your business.
  3. Trademarking your name, reviewing lease documents, preparing the first contracts with your employees, clients, contractors, service providers, etc.
  4. Complying with all the local, state and federal regulations for your industry.


… you want to solve ongoing business issues or grow your company

A business attorney can protect you and advocate for your business to ensure your interests are served in:

  1. all the contracts you sign.
  2. any business dispute that might arise.
  3. placing all your assets into a trust.
  4. solving human resources issues that might appear.
  5. all the partnership or franchising agreements necessary to expand your business.


… when your business faces serious issues

Like legal complaints, lawsuits, investigations, or it goes through complex situations, such as partnership development, merging, franchising, important business negotiations, etc.


Final advice:

as a business owner in San Diego, you do not need a lawyer for each and every legal issue, but when these are too complex, too time-consuming or are fraught with liability, then it is wiser to get in touch with one.

Rated 5 out of 5

We received a letter from an attorney representing an ex employee from years ago. This letter couldn’t have come at a worse time for our family. Although the ex-employee had no substance in their case and this was mostly a nuisance, we felt very vulnerable and unprepared. I reached out to a few lawyers for a quote and their retainer fees alone were deal breakers. When I reached Thomas Gallagher, he approached my case from a completely different angle and walked me through the many small steps we would take to get through this issue. Within the first conversation I felt like I had a plan of attack, an attorney I could trust, and that our family was protected. Our case ended up never going to court. In fact, Thomas was able to resolve the entire issue within a week. I am extremely happy with the results from this potential lawsuit, but even happier knowing my family and business is now protected by a lawyer than can get the job done.
