Welcome back! We are here to talk more about your first meeting with an attorney in Raleigh NC concerning small business startup!
Prep Tips for Meeting Your Attorney in Raleigh NC
Remember, in our last blog, we talked about starting off with making checklist for things you'd like to cover in the meeting. You can either write a brief outline, write down specific questions, or simply list the subjects you want to cover, such as:
- Contracts and Agreements
- Choosing an Entity (Corporation, LLC, Partnership)
- Business Plans
- Property Rights
- Federal, State and Local Regulations
- Intellectual Property Law
- Estate Planning
In the days or weeks leading up to your meeting, jot down other things that come up as you’re working that you may want to ask. Some may seem unimportant, but since this is your first meeting you will want to get as much initial information as you can. Also keep in mind that this will not be your only meeting with your lawyer, so you do not have to cover everything if that list has grown to several pages.
If you have extensive issues to discuss, it may be best to break it up into several meetings so that you can properly cover each issue. Of course, keep in mind that you will be paying for each meeting unless you are paying a monthly set fee. Before beginning a partnership with any lawyer be sure to get their fees upfront and find out how they will bill you. You do not want to be surprised with charges you were not expecting, especially if it can affect your business’ bottom line.
