The cost of hiring an attorney will depend on the attorney’s level of experience, the quality of their work, how busy they are, and where their office is located. It will also depend on the legal task for which the attorney is being hired.
A solicitor is a lawyer who will deal with out-of-court legal needs of their clients. For example, a solicitor will help with drafting contracts, drafting wills, business purchases and sales, incorporations, mergers and acquisitions, and so on.
In BC, you are not required to have a company lawyer. However, a company lawyer can protect you and your company from risks that you may not be aware of and help you do your business in a more efficient and profitable manner.
You do not need a solicitor to buy a small business. However, it is recommended that you have a lawyer represent you in your business purchase to protect your rights and prevent you from suffering substantial losses as a result of incorrect legal work such as incomplete contracts or poorly structured transactions.
Corporate lawyers usually do not go to court. To protect your rights in court, you will need to retain a “litigator”. Litigators are lawyers who have the knowledge and experience to prepare court documents and represent clients inside a courtroom.
Each company will have different legal needs. You should schedule a consultation with a corporate attorney to see whether you should use the service of a lawyer in your business.
