When You Need Legal Advice

All businesses are likely to need legal help at least once a year, yet most of them do not actively seek legal help.

This is borne out of data from a recent survey that showed the  majority of businesses experience some event during a 12 period that may require the services of a lawyer. Over half of those who needed legal advice chose not to seek it, and close to 80% of those yet to experience legal problems indicated they might go down the same route.

Why the  opposition t o getting the help businesses need? Price is the sticking point for most businesses apart from the very largest, and even these have budget constraints. When it comes to hiring a lawyer, hourly fees of £250.00 up to £1,000 are out of reach of most people’s budget. And then comes the trepidation of searching for a good solictor and the right service: there is a lot of uncertainty and confusion as what a lawyer will do, and how to tell the good from the bad.
