Why corporate lawyers and corporate law firms in London are valuable to businesses?

by Hudson Mckenzie Lawyers and Solicitors who understand you

There could be two professionals any business will be needed at one point of time: an accountant and a lawyer. The major reasons for getting an accountant are quite obvious--you need an expert to help you define your "chart of accounts," analyse your numbers occasionally, and formulate all of your vital federal, state and local tax returns. The reason for hiring a corporate lawyer may not, however, be so ostensible. A reputed business attorney will give necessary assistance in almost every facet of your business, from fundamental zoning compliance and copyright and trademark suggestion to full-fledged business incorporation and proceedings and liability.

In most of the cases, businesses consult with corporate law firms in London that feature an extended list of corporate lawyers meant to provide necessary help in all corporate matters.

Below is the list of areas where corporate law firms in London play a vital role.

1. Business contracts. You will come across the need a lawyer who can analyse your business quickly; prepare the standard form contracts you will require for customers, clients and suppliers; and help you reply to contracts that other people will wish you to sign.

2. Business organizations. You will need a lawyer who can help you choose whether a corporation or limited liability company (LLC) is the feasible way to manage your business and prepare the important paperwork.

3. Real estate. Leases of commercial space--such as offices and retail stores--are extremely complicated and are always conscripted to profit the landlord. As they tend to be "printed form" documents, you may be interested to contemplate they are not negotiable. Not so. Your lawyer should have an average "tenant's addendum," including provisions that benefit you, that can be included in the printed form lease document.

4. Taxes and licenses. Though your accountant will prepare and file your business tax returns each year, your lawyer must know how to register your business for federal and state tax identification numbers, and define the tax consequences of the more basic business transactions in which your business will engage.

5. Intellectual property. If you operate in a media, design or other creative-type business, it is definitely an advantage if your lawyer can help you register your products and services for federal trademark and copyright protection. Typically, though, these tasks are done by specialists who do nothing but "intellectual property" legal job. If your lawyer says he or she "specializes in small businesses," then he or she should have a great working association with one or more intellectual property expert.
