About Phoenix Business Law Lawyers

What Can a Phoenix Business Lawyer Do for You?
A variety of legal issues arise in connection with running a business. If you buy an existing business or invest in a going operation, you need to perform due diligence so you fully understand what you are taking on. An experienced business lawyer can help in either case. An experienced Phoenix business lawyer can review existing contracts and provide up-to-date information about business laws.

If you are starting a new business, a business lawyer can review your options for the form of your business and help you identify the best form for your purposes, whether that is a limited liability partnership, a C corporation, an S corporation or something else. A business lawyer can help you with a host of other start-up issues and your start-up team should probably include one.

It is best practice to have a relationship with a great business lawyer who is always at the ready to help you manage your legal issues.       

How Much Does a Business Lawyer Cost?
The cost of an experienced business lawyer in Phoenix depends on several factors. The issue on which the lawyer is working affects their fee. Different types of fee structures are common. If a business lawyer represents a business as a plaintiff in a personal injury or product liability lawsuit, the lawyer will collect a contingency fee. This is a percentage of the money the lawyer recovers for your business. Percentages may range from 30 to 35% of the recovered amount if the case is settled early, to 40 to 45% if the case goes to trial. 

If a lawyer is reviewing a contract, they may charge either an hourly fee or a flat fee for contract review and negotiation to a final draft. An hourly fee can vary from $100 to $500 per hour. Big firms in big cities charge more than smaller firms or sole practitioners in the suburbs and small towns.
