About San Diego Business Law Lawyers

What Can a Business Lawyer in San Diego Do for You?
Business lawyers can manage and negotiate many different aspects of your business. Business lawyers are mostly concerned with ensuring you and your business are in compliance with all laws. Part of this is helping you apply for and obtain all necessary licensure in order to conduct your business.

A business lawyer in San Diego can help from the very beginning by providing legal guidance when drafting a business plan. They can help you establish legally sound policies and procedures. Should you become an employer, a business lawyer can advise you on creating an employee handbook.

Business lawyers can also assist in the following ways:

  • Mergers and acquisitions;
  • Selling the business;
  • Contracts and their related disputes; and
  • Intellectual property and related issues.

A business lawyer in San Diego can handle legal issues that may arise involving your business. They can resolve disputes, represent you in court, and provide you with risk management legal strategies to avoid conflict.

How Much Does a Business Lawyer Cost?
How much a business lawyer costs will vary according to several different factors. The most common factor that will affect how much an attorney costs is location. It is not uncommon for attorneys who practice in larger cities, such as San Diego, to charge higher rates than attorneys practicing in smaller towns. Other factors include experience, reputation, and whether any paralegals or associates will also be handling the case.  

Generally speaking, if a business lawyer is working on an hourly fee basis, you should expect to pay between $100 and $400 per hour. This estimation is based on the national average as of 2020. Again, exactly how much a business lawyer may cost will differ based on your needs and the complexity of your case. Having an attorney help you apply for a business license will obviously cost far less than having an attorney represent you in court for a breach of contract issue.
