In business, some difficulties regularly occur (in an ordinary person, such difficulties may be once in a lifetime, or may not be at all) and it is beneficial for a lawyer to serve the business.

Therefore, the actual question is how to choose a good professional lawyer for business? And why exactly do you need a business lawyer and can you do without it?

Corporate matters

A business lawyer is also a corporate lawyer. What does it mean? Any business that grows requires a structure that includes the presence of several LLCs or sole proprietorships, or maybe other forms of business vision and the task of a corporate lawyer’s business is to ensure the correct legal relationship.

A business attorney must clearly understand the answers to such questions

But in any case, a business lawyer must understand the answers to the questions:

Litigation of disputes

In any business, sooner or later a situation will arise when it is necessary to go to court, it can be a dispute with the tax authorities, with suppliers, with customers, with regulatory or law enforcement agencies. Therefore, the main tasks of a lawyer for business are to clearly understand judicial work, know procedural legislation and have experience in conducting cases in court.

The most frequent questions that a business attorney should clearly know the answers to are:

Protection from law enforcement agencies (criminal block)

As soon as your business achieves certain results – as practice shows, searches are inevitable. So far, this is the reality of our country. Therefore, a lawyer for business is a criminal lawyer who can not only effectively defend your rights, but must forestall problems and prepare you as much as possible for all possible scenarios for the work of law enforcement agencies.

A criminal business lawyer must understand the answers to the questions:

  • is it possible to receive compensation for not mounted actions of the police and other authorities?

Protection against raiding

In the process of raiding, you can lose your business or property. Raiders can be either your business partners or third parties who want to steal your assets.

Therefore, a business lawyer should not only understand raiding schemes in order to forestall threats, but should clearly understand how to deal with it, which is why he should understand the answers to a number of questions:

  • how to understand what they want to squeeze, raid, steal, re-register business or real estate?

Labor issues

The biggest problem in any business is the human factor – employees. Someone quit, someone wants a vacation, someone is constantly late or demands more than they should, and there are many such problems. A business lawyer must know not just the norms of labor legislation, but also the principles of business turnover, hiring employees and their motivation, in order to prepare high-quality labor documentation.

Frequently asked questions in this area:

  • how to properly fire for absenteeism or violation of labor regulations?
  • what is the penalty for an unregistered employee or if employees are not registered?
  • what is the responsibility for wages in envelope, “black salary”?
  • can I be fired during the quarantine period?
  • can I be forced to resign of my own free will?
  • how to detect theft in an enterprise?
  • are job descriptions necessary and what must be displayed in them?

Protection of trade secrets

The success of a business depends primarily on certain tricks of the head, methods of work, customer base, supplier base, etc. This is understood by competitors and it is understood by cunning employees who, after a month of work, knowing everything about your other business, are trying to open exactly the same.

How can you protect yourself from the outflow of trade secrets and theft of information?

Only an experienced business attorney will be able to answer your questions, the most common of which are:

  • what is a nondisclosure agreement or NDA?
  • what is the responsibility for a violation of a nondisclosure agreement or NDA? and how to attract an employee for violating the NDA?
  • what is an anti competitive agreement and anti competitive policy of the company?
  • what is the responsibility for theft of commercial information with limited access?
  • how to punish an employee who leaking information to competitors?
  • what to do if an employee copied all information from the enterprise?

Preparation of template contracts and analysis of atypical contracts

Why is it Important for any business? Yes, because you must have guarantees and protection from unscrupulous counterparties, buyers and suppliers. This can only be ensured through a competent contract. If you have a typical sale, then a once-developed standard contract that you sign without making any changes will suit you. This often happens when there are a lot of sales and they are small. If the sale is not typical and requires negotiations and approval of many nuances, then you need a contract lawyer or a contract lawyer. And it is the task of a lawyer for business to be such a lawyer for you.

Frequently asked questions:

  • how much does it cost to develop a contract?
  • what interest, fines, penalties can be charged in case of non-fulfillment of the contract?
  • is it possible to sign contracts with a fakimil?
  • who can sign contracts on behalf of the company?
  • is the seal on the contract obligatory?
  • how to break, terminate the contract?
  • can the contract be corrected?
  • what are force majeure circumstances?
  • obligatory whether to sign the act to the agreement?

Intellectual Property Protection

When your business becomes successful, there are always people willing to copy it. This is inevitable! Therefore, this process must be said in advance and one must understand how to do it. And therefore, this is one of the priority tasks of a business lawyer.


  • how to patent an idea?
  • what documents are needed to patent an idea?
  • how to check the uniqueness of an idea?
  • how to protect your site, logo, brand, text from copying?
  • how to punish for copying a site, logo, brand, text?
  • how to share a site, logo, brand, text or other information in the event of a business split ?

In what cases it is necessary to contact a lawyer for business, and in what cases can you handle it yourself?

You need to contact a lawyer for business in two cases:

First – you yourself do not understand what to do. Most often this happens if you are just starting a business, when your priority is sales, negotiations, marketing, etc. The legal component often fades into the background in such cases. And this is the situation when the owner of the business most often makes many mistakes that are then expensive. Moreover, a good lawyer for business becomes after many years and after long experience, the owner of the business should not replace all specialists/Everyone should do their own thing. Therefore, you should contact a business attorney not when a problem has arisen, in advance.

Second – you do not have time to delve into the legal fuss. Again, I repeat, everyone should mind their own business. Therefore, you do business and earn money, your lawyer closes all legal issues. Almost every successful businessman will confirm this.

* If the volume of services is exhausted before the end of the month, the client may pay the cost of the new tariff or use the hourly tariff of 1,200 UAH/hour.


Participation in court hearings (in minor cases) – lawyers/lawyers’ assistants, lawyers 50 USD/hour
Participation in court hearings of the deputy managing partner – lawyer 100 USD/hour
Participation in court hearings of the managing partner – a lawyer 200 USD/hour


* The calculation of the hourly rate begins 1 hour before the start of the court session and ends 1 hour after its official completion, if the court is located within the city of Kiev.

* The calculation of the hourly rate begins 2 hours before the start of the court session and ends 2 hours after its official end, if the court is located within the Kiev region.

* The cost of travel allowance, if the vessel is in the regions of Ukraine, is calculated separately from the hourly rate and amounts to UAH 5,000/day.
