Change is certain in business but is often difficult to manage. Considering all aspects of the law while managing critical business issues will require an experienced authority who can help smooth the impact of change by providing guidance in how to structure the new and protect against the bad.
Every business owner or CEO needs guidance in solving business issues such as:
• Business ownership changes
• Succession planning
• Estate Planning
• Partnership disputes
• Hiring, managing or terminating employees or contractors
• Limiting liability in customer relationships
• Doing business online
• Leasing of space or equipment
• Managing Board of Directors and/or stakeholders
• Purchasing, selling, or merging a business
• Protecting intellectual property
• Raising money
• Asset protection and estate planning
These are not issues. In fact, many of the issues are sitting on your desk NOW. Who is the right person or company to trust when it comes to matters of your business? There is little margin for error.

Here is a video clip from Equinox Business Law which educates employers about hiring "contractors". It is an overview of the requirements for classifying workers as independent contractors versus employees in Washington state. Should the person you hire be considered a contractor? or an employee?

Entrepreneurs and small business owners call me for assistance to which my response many times is: "Call the attorney... yesterday." Last minute calls increase the cost and lowers the opportunity for solutions. Yes, it is true that lawyers are not the first person people want to contact. There is certainly a fear of the unknown when dealing with the law and attorneys which is why Equinox Business Law's unique way of doing business is so valuable.
At least one or more of the business issues from the list above will occur in the coming year. Please prepare. "Mike, I was too busy" just doesn't cut it for something of such high importance when there are people such as Michelle and her team ready and able to help.
