What our Law Firm offers Small Business that other firms don't

What Legal Protection Do We Provide That Is Not Offered by Any Other Small Business Attorney Along the Sierra Crest?

In our quest to provide ever more value to our small business clients, we have developed the Concierge Legal Protection Plan (CLPP) for Small Businesses.

The traditional method by which a small business owner gets legal services is that he or she must first recognize on her own that an aspect of her business has a legal threat. Then the small business owner waits until she cannot ignore the legal issue any longer. Then the small business owner finds and calls one or more attorneys to help solve the legal issue that has now grown more large and complex than necessary.

Of course you are always invited to call our firm when you need assistance or advice on any legal or business problem. But it is essential to recognize that the traditional approach to procuring small business legal services does not give the best value to the small business owner. This is because he or she is not usually professionally trained to anticipate and recognize small business legal issues on her own. Moreover, the traditional approach does not do anything to help the small business owner build systems in her business that can prevent many small business legal issues while also limiting the impact of those small business legal issues that cannot be prevented. In the end, the unfortunate small business owner ends up paying the proverbial “pound of cure” because nobody helped her apply the necessary “ounce of prevention.”

Large corporations have figured this out. So they hire full-time staff attorneys and sometimes entire legal departments to help them get ahead of legal problems. But small businesses usually do not have the need or resources to hire and train full-time legal staff. So small businesses miss out on this solution.

We have what other small business law firms can't offer

The Sierra Crest Business Law Group has created its proprietary Concierge Legal Protection Plan for Small Businesses. This plan has four components to help you as a small business owner build your small business legal systems, including corporate governance, contracts, claims and business litigation, human resources, insurance, policies and procedures, intellectual and other property, and regulatory compliance.

The Concierge Legal Protection Plan for Small Businesses is designed for small business owners who are proactive and intentional about building their businesses. Its value is more than the cost difference between the “ounce of prevention” and the “pound of cure,” although that cost difference is substantial. This is because you have a primary purpose why you need to have your small business and the profit it is supposed to create for you. The ultimate value of the Concierge Legal Protection Plan for Small Businesses is that it frees your time and gives you the tools to create the future that depends on the success of your small business.

What makes us unique

We are business-people who also happen to be attorneys.

As business-people, we can step into your shoes and identify with both your dreams and nightmares as a business owner. We are intimately familiar with the seven parts of every successful small business. Are you? We are also able to understand the technology that your small business uses and sells. We want you to succeed as a small business, not just on some particular point of law.

We have negotiated many business sales for buyers and sellers alike, and can guide you through the process so that you receive what you have bargained for.

Small Business Owners, those whose livelihood and careers depend on their business thriving have a lot to worry about. So much of a business’s chances are left up to chance and factors outside of one’s control. However, there’s ways to make sure that come the unexpected, your business is protected from harm. 

The 3 biggest risks small business owners face today: Employee Matters, Contracts, and Partners can all tank your prospects. A small business law firm can help you sort through these risks.

First, you get regularly-scheduled business strategy meetings (monthly, twice-monthly, or weekly, depending on your level of service) with one of our business attorneys, in which we focus on the business legal system that is the highest priority in your small business and then develop a written action plan to strengthen it;

Second, in between business strategy meetings, our Client Care Specialist follows up and provides accountability to make sure that everybody who has accepted a responsibility in the written action plan does what he or she has agreed to do;

Third, on a quarterly basis, our office conducts a risk assessment of your small business and provides you a written report on issues that we recognize as frequent sources of vulnerability to small businesses; and

Fourth, on an annual basis, one of our business attorneys visits your place of business and participates in a long-range strategic planning meeting with you.

How can someone avoid legal disputes between business partners? Some business partners ask the question of how they can anticipate and resolve legal disputes with a business partner before they ever happen. Our firm can help you find solutions!
