In business, you need an attorney who is both a business person and a lawyer. Unfortunately, law schools do not teach business skills, and law firms do not generally train lawyers to think like business people. Ronald B. Taylor, P.C. is unique. Ron Taylor's experience as an in-house general counsel has given me a business perspective that allows us to provide legal advice and options that take into account practical business needs. With this experience the firm can provide your small to medium sized business the advantage of custom designed legal services without the overhead and cost associated with hiring an in house general counsel. Ronald B. Taylor, P.C. can serve as an affordable, flexible and ACCESSIBLE General Counsel alternative, saving you time and money that can be better focused on what you do best, running your business.

Your Challenge

Regardless of the size of your business, you generally face legal issues and risks similar to those faced by larger companies. The challenges may not be as complex or as frequent, but they still have critical implications for your business. For example, employment related disputes (discrimination, harassment, etc.), especially if you do not have employment practices insurance coverage can be costly and even devastating, regardless of the truth or validity of the claim. Unfortunately, you may only see two choices when it comes to legal ser vices: hiring an outside law firm on specific issues, and employing an in-house legal counsel. Both options can be expensive for small to medium sized businesses. Many times, that cost may lead you to seek advise only after a problem surfaces, like an EEOC complaint. However, at that point the matter can become very expensive, both in time away from the business and legal fees. At Ronald B. Taylor, P.C. we offer you a third option that puts in place a risk management component, encourages more frequent contact and advice, and can cost you less. This in turn lets you focus on what you do best, running your business.

When it comes to business and legal matters, you need Practical advice that takes into account your individual business goals and needs. All of the legal issues you face can involve various risks and solutions. It is important that your attorney understand your business, business needs, and business goals in order to tailor customize your legal options. One major benefit of in-house attorneys, they learn your business well and can provide those practical solutions to your problems. Another benefit, they are present and can provide immediate advice that helps you avoid problems so that you do not have to incur higher costs fixing a problem that could have been prevented in the first place.
