Many businesses operate without the services of a solicitor but there are a number of occasions when legal advice should be sought. In particular, no one should sign a lease of premises without taking legal advice because a business can encounter financial difficulty through unnoticed liabilities in its lease. Either an accountant or solicitor will help with drawing up a partnership agreement that all partnerships should have. A solicitor will also help to explain complex contractual terms and prepare draft contracts if the type of business being entered into requires them.
