Client Success Stories
How Can InPrime Help Navigate Through Everyday Business Legal Hurdles?
It has become more difficult for someone to start and maintain a business. Every state has extensive laws and regulations related to every aspect of running a business, from forming a business to finalizing sales tax reports. At InPrime Legal, you can have access to an attorney who has an in-depth understanding of the complications and regulations in your area of business. We can provide guidance on workers’ compensation law, employment law, contract law, and more. If you are in the real estate business, we can help you with offers to buy and sell the property. Our attorneys are highly skilled and will work diligently to protect the best interests of your business.
Finding the right attorney is never easy. However, when you participate in the prepaid legal services of InPrime Legal, you can rest assured that we have already done the heavy lifting for you. Our attorneys are experienced, focused on business law, and prepared to provide excellent customer service. When you sign up with our subscription plan, it will be as if you have your attorney ready to assist you with all your legal needs. We provide our clients with a straightforward way of doing business. You will pay a low-cost, monthly set fee. You will not face any larger bills in some months when you need more legal help. You will not need to brace every time you check your legal bill. We believe that predictability in billing practices helps small to medium-sized businesses.
How Does the InPrime Legal Subscription Service Work?
InPrime Legal does not operate via the typical “bill-you-by-the-minute” law firm structure. Instead, we offer a monthly subscription-based legal service model for a flat monthly fee. While you may initially balk at the idea of paying for a lawyer during the weeks when you do not feel you need one what this practice allows us to do is remain proactive in our defense of your business interests instead of simply being reactive to situations as they occur. By being proactive and taking initiative, we help you anticipate problems that may arise, and we help defend your interests from the potential risks of disputes or litigation.
Our InPrime subscription service is very much like having an in-house legal department for your business. You will have a dedicated team of lawyers and associates that is always involved and consistently reviewing new legal matters for you and your partners. We also schedule quarterly meetings with you just so we stay involved with your evolving objectives.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is the Best Form of Business Entity?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. The best business entity selection is entirely dependent on your business and your needs. Ideally, you want to select the business form that best insulates you from financial liability and heavy tax exposure. Whether you decide on a sole proprietorship, a partnership, a limited liability company (LLC), or a corporation, your attorney can help advise you.
Should I Go to Court or Try to Settle Matters Out of the Courtroom?
At InPrime Legal, we strongly recommend against litigation and lawsuits. We champion alternative dispute resolution techniques to help settle disputes in a cost-effective manner.
What Is the Difference Between Mediation and Arbitration?
Mediation uses a neutral third party (the mediator) to cooperatively come to an agreement that is mutually beneficial to both parties. The mediator does not make any decisions but merely tries to steer the negotiation in a fruitful direction. Arbitration uses a neutral third party (the arbitrator) to review the situation, and then the arbitrator makes the decision for both parties.
Is the InPrime Legal Subscription-Based Service Right for Me?
With pay-by-the-minute billing practices, you had to decide between being billed hundreds of dollars for a quick phone conversation with your lawyer or addressing a legal situation on your own. With a flat monthly fee for InPrime Legal services, you can think of our firm as your business’s outsourced legal counsel, always there for you whenever you need us.
What Are the Different Types of Intellectual Property?
There are four types of intellectual property recognized by the law in the United States: the trademark, the copyright, the patent, and trade secrets. Trademarks are for slogans, logos, and catchphrases. Copyrights are largely reserved for works of artistic expression. Patents are for new, innovative inventions. And trade secrets relate to formulas, recipes, and other collected information that would lose value if the knowledge were made public to competitors and rivals.
How Do I Trademark My Product Name?
To trademark a name, symbol, or slogan with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the item which you wish to trademark must be especially unique. Your lawyer can help search the database for previously registered trademarks before starting the application process.
How Do I Patent a Product or Service?
Patents these days are largely for new inventions in technology, software, or engineering. To patent a new product or service, speak with a patent attorney about the application process.
Does Your Firm Favor Representing Landlords Over Tenants or Vice Versa?
We understand that the relationship between landlords and tenants can be strained at times. But we do not favor one over the other. We understand that each party needs the other, at least to some extent, to find success in business. If you take us on as your legal representation, we will be dedicated to representing your interests, regardless of what side of a commercial lease agreement you may find yourself on.
Why Do So Many Small Businesses Fail?
While the state of Georgia is one of the best states for business in the nation, starting a small business is always a risky venture. Unfortunately, nationwide statistics show that most small businesses fail, with some 20% of them folding within their first year of operation. InPrime Legal wishes to help your small business dream become a beautiful reality. We could assist you in the forming of a successful business plan, help you acquire loans and financing, provide legal advice in the hiring and firing of employees, protect your intellectual property from the competition, help you with taxes, and lend guidance in sales and marketing.
I’m Looking to Dissolve My Business. What Should I Do?
Not every company is built to live forever. And even if the business is strong enough to continue, sometimes it’s just time for us as business owners to move on. If you wish to dissolve your Georgia-based business, our legal team can help you through the many steps involved in winding down a business.
How Can We Help You & Your Business?
