BUSINESS REALITIES ALWAYS AFFECT LEGAL ADVICE

Business Legal Counseling and Business Consulting cross lines frequently, because legal advice cannot be divorced from the business context. In fact, as most business owners or managers understand, the decision on a course of legal action is decided on the business facts (e.g. is this cost effective or should we treat this as a nuisance).

WIDE RANGE OF LEGAL SUPPORT FOR BUSINESSES

For almost as long as there have been businesses, there has been business lawyers. The plain undeniable truth is that in today's increasingly "out for myself" world, a handshake and faith in a business entity or individual to live up to its / his / her promises has almost entirely disappeared from modern business culture.

Most people just shake their head negatively at those that operate without a contract or something in writing. This is not to say having contracts for anything and everything is the way the world should work; it's just the way the world does work. And, well-run businesses are always a reflection of reality, because operating a business in fantasy often leads to red-ink, layoffs or eventual collapse.
