What are the legal needs of your business?
A recent study by Decision Analysts, titled The Legal Needs of Small Businesses (click to download pdf) contained the following:
The Legal Needs of Small Business Survey shows that America’s smallest businesses—those with 250 employees or less—face a host of legal issues, mostly alone, as they try to protect and grow their business.
- Debt collection
- Contract review
- Document review
- Contractor/Supplier disputes
- Internet security breaches
- Product liability issues
- Employee theft
- Tax audits
- Employee confidentiality issues
- Threats of consumer lawsuits
With a LegalShield Small Business Plan, small business owners have ready access to the quality legal advice and counsel they need so that they can focus on properly managing and growing their business.
Legal issues could happen to anyone
More than 13 million, or nearly 60%, of all small businesses have experienced significant legal events in the past two years.
AND… From a Wall Street Journal Press Release on the study: “A frightening number of small business owners deal with legal issues on their own because they don’t believe hiring an attorney is worth the significant cost they have to pay. LegalShield Small Business legal protection plans take the cost-benefit debate off the table. For a fraction of what a small business would pay an attorney to handle a single issue, they can have access to their own dedicated law firm for advice and counsel.”
