One of my favorite books is “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Steven Covey. If you are starting a business, thinking about starting one or have one up and running and you have not read it, go read it. Anyways, in the book, one of the ‘habits’ is to “plan what you are taking action about”. The types of actions are broken down into four quadrants based upon whether a specific task is important (or not important) and urgent (or not urgent). What was surprising to me is that Covey advises that the things that matter the most in the long term for success are things which are important, but not urgent. Examples might be writing a will, doing financial planning, continuing education and other matters which don’t yield benefits today but will do so in the long-run. It is with this background that I tell you, entrepreneur and/or new business owner, you need to do a legal audit for your new or early-stage business. Perhaps it is not urgent, but it is important for the long-term success of your business.
A “Legal Audit” is a review, discussion and consultation by a Florida Business Attorney and a Florida business owner regarding actual or potential legal matters as they relate to the existence and operations of a business.
