Entrepreneurs and the “Quarterback” Attorney

Carlos J. Reyes, Esq. - Reyes Law Group

RLG’s Off-Site In-House Counsel Program

Entrepreneurs are alive and well.  Despite all the generational misdirection on capitalism today, “business entrepreneurs” are the key to what has made this country strong and stable over the years.  For you in the trenches, you have not only survived, or created your business during these last few difficult years, but now you’re thriving.  Hard work, commitment, persistence, and an abiding faith in the American Dream continues to fuel your success.  For that, I salute and congratulate all entrepreneurs.  Talk is cheap, but you walk the walk.  Now the question is, how do you ensure long-term sustainability?  How do you comply with legal and business requirements needed today?  How do you anticipate and address potential problems before they become unmanageable?  Who do you call on?  We can help you “Quarterback” the team of advisors every successful business needs to address these challenges and more!

In my 26 years of practicing law, I headed up chambers of commerce, participated in business networking groups, and more. I have often been asked – what is the ideal framework for a successful business?  Despite technology, despite changes in economic circumstances, changes in the law, and so on – the building blocks and basics never change.  Successful entrepreneurs not only deliver great service, or make a great product or “widget.” Successful entrepreneurs also surround themselves with a great team of leaders, employees, and professionals to ensure they have all eyes on the key aspects of their business.  Of critical import is the latter group – your professionals!  This group can help you survive, thrive and flourish, or stop you from crashing and burning.  You see, it’s not just how hard you work, it’s how smart you work.  You’ve heard the phrase, “it’s not how much you make, but how much you keep.”  There’s a reason for that.  That’s why for entrepreneurs it’s critical to build a great team of professionals.  It’s extremely important to have an accountant on your team. And the same holds true when it comes to banking.  Having a banker that knows your cash flow cycles is crucial.  The right banker will assess your financial needs and provide a line of credit to help deal with the ebbs and flows of cash flow.  The same can be said of an insurance agent.  Things happen.  You can count on that.  Having the right coverage – depending on your type of business – can mean the difference between staying in business and shutting down.  And last, but certainly not least, is the attorney.

An attorney will:

  • Help ensure what you’re doing is “legal.”
  • Anticipate legal pitfalls.
  • Assure that you’re complying with laws that are specific to your industry and business.
  • Work to provide oversight to employment challenges.
  • Look for ways to minimize your liability, and more.

It’s not unusual for your lawyer to act as the “Quarterback” for your team of professionals.

Successful entrepreneurs have great ideas, a work ethic, a team of leaders and top-notch employees in the company, but supporting and protecting your efforts is YOUR
team of professionals.  That vital team usually consists of an Accountant, Banker, Insurance Agent and Attorney.  They will assist you, the entrepreneurs, watch over the keys to the long term sustainability of your business, taxes, cash flow, insurance, legal issues & compliance, and more!
