Ohio doesn’t require you to have a business attorney, but there are immense benefits. A lawyer can help you avoid potential legal pitfalls before they become costly litigation. They can help ensure that your agreements protect your company’s interests and shield you from liability. Further, an attorney can identify legal issues and loopholes throughout your business’s lifecycle.
If you work with the attorney over an extended period, they can get to know you and your business. In the end, this saves you time and money because you may limit the potential for lawsuits, and if one does arise, you already have a lawyer who knows your company.
