How We Help Attorneys
Welcome fellow business attorneys to Hunter Business Law.
If you are looking to collaborate to better serve Florida entrepreneurs and small business clients, we want to talk to you.
The mission of Hunter Business Law is to meet the unique needs of small businesses, from start-up to buy-out. To do so, we collaborate with other attorneys when it makes sense to do so. For example, we work with entrepreneurs who need patent law services, which we do not provide in-house, so we have referral partners who we know and trust.
Let’s face it, the practice of law is demanding and complex. No one attorney can know it all. Consider the “niche” of small business law; it encompasses corporate law, contracts, intellectual property, UCC, securities law, finance, labor and employment, torts, commercial real estate, mergers and acquisitions, a host of regulations with which to comply depending on the industry, and the list goes on.
And, there are only so many hours in a day. Clients reasonably expect their work to be done in a timely manner, and done well. With multiple clients, the work load can be unpredictable yet you don’t want to turn away new business. A single legal research & writing project can take days, and may require more focus than you are able to give.
These are the times when The Business Counsel Collaborative™ and Mastery Legal Research & Writing™ offered by Hunter Business Law can enable you to continue to fill your pipeline of clients while not risking the loss of existing clients because you are too busy, or lack experience. As we learn about you and your areas of expertise, we can also look to you for assistance when we need it.
If you share our goal of working together to help Florida’s small business owners start, grow and successfully exit businesses, read on.
The Ethics of Collaboration
Hunter Business Law is dedicated to the ethical practice of law. We adhere to the Rules of the Florida Bar and seek guidance from the American Bar Association. Both Bar organizations have provided guidance on outsourcing legal work and co-counseling.
Of course, preventing any conflicts of interest is of paramount importance. That is why the first thing we do, before we discuss your needs with any specificity, is provide you with an intake form which screens for conflicts.
