Business Start-up lawyer


Valued Contributor
Many people want to open business and always want to make profit but we neglect the necessary things that's suppose to be the first thing to do.
Using Nigeria as a case study you hardly see someone having a start-up lawyer before he or she engage in the business of choice, unlike in the united state before you engage in any business you seek for start-up lawyer that will guide and put you through.
i dont know if it is in there law or it just fear of making profit. If it is in there law why can't we adopt it in Nigeria.

I think , the issue is the need for the lawyer. What will a cloth selling business need lawyer for prior to starting the business ? Or laundry business .

There are some Businesses that may need lawyer before they can start fully , example is the real estate business ,where the lawyer have to make sure that the documents if the land are all original , fully signed and the land surveyed and sent for confirmation to the right channel , in order to prevent future land dispute.

However , a businessman may have to involve a lawyer before starting a business , if their any transaction made , example if he bought a shop from someone else . This is also to give him assurance that the shop is now his own.

Outside these scenario , there are some Businesses that do not really need a lawyer before it is started .
