What to Ask Your Business Lawyer 

When seeking a business lawyer, it is essential to work with someone who understands your company's unique goals and challenges. Here are some essential questions to ask when gauging whether your attorney is a good fit:  

  • What is your experience in handling business transactions similar to mine? 

  • How do you structure your fees, and can you provide a detailed estimate of costs for my transaction? 

  • Can you walk me through the typical timeline for a transaction like mine? 

  • How do you foresee any potential legal issues that could affect my business transaction? 

  • What strategies do you employ to minimize risk and ensure a successful transaction? 

  • Can you provide references from past clients who have engaged in similar transactions? 

  • How will you communicate with me throughout the transaction process? 

  • What documentation will you need from me to get started? 

  • Who else in your firm will be working on my case, and what are their qualifications? 

  • How do you handle conflicts of interest that may arise during the transaction?
