California Business and Corporate Law
As everyone in business knows, sometimes you need your lawyer. In fact, it is increasingly difficult to navigate ever-changing legal requirements without legal help. But often even sophisticated business executives hesitate over the kind of lawyer they should seek. A contracts attorney? A corporate attorney? An employment attorney?
There are hundreds of legal specialties, but only one right answer to these questions. A business needs a business attorney, meaning an attorney who is familiar with the range of legal issues, problems and even opportunities that face any business. Most of the time, the business attorney understands the issue and can offer constructive solutions. In some cases, the attorney will offer to bring in a specialist – with the name and other information about that specialist at the attorney’s fingertips.
We call that “one-stop shopping,” and that’s what the Business Law and Litigation group at Bewley, Lassleben & Miller, LLP offers.
