HOW WE WORK TOGETHER

MYTHS AND FACTS

There are lots of misconceptions about the role legal advice plays in the success of a business. The following are just some of the myths we’ve encountered and what we view the truth to be.

MYTH: Legal advice is not needed when starting your business.

TRUTH: Yes, you can start a business without a lawyer. However, basing your decisions on good legal advice early in the life cycle of your business is critical to avoiding expensive mistakes. Also, growing your business requires being informed of the risks associated with your decisions.

We help you make the best decisions when starting your business in Canada. We'll design an operational structure to protect your assets and satisfy your long term goals and assist you obtaining financing, establishing working relationships with your staff as well as introduce you to our wider network to help you build a modern business.

MYTH: Legal advice is needed after you make a decision or when you are in a dispute.

TRUTH: Sure, lawyers play a critical role in following your instructions after a decision has been made. But the truth is, legal advice is most valuable (and frankly cheaper) before a decision has been made and before you are involved with a legal proceeding. Having a legal right to take an action doesn't mean the action makes commercial sense!

Our clients value our ability to combine our legal experience with business knowledge. We take pride in our ability to not only say "NO" to a client but also to give clients' options to consider when their initial decisions does not make commercial sense.

MYTH: Lawyers don't use technology effectively.

TRUTH: Yes, many lawyers don't use technology as effectively as they should in order to advance the interests of their clients. However, there are many other lawyers who readily use technology to deliver greater value to clients with greater efficiencies.

B&I Legal Counsel is one of those law firms. We use technology through out our practice whether it be designing effective organizational models for our clients or using document automation and artificial intelligence when resolving disputes.

MYTH: Modern Businesses don't need lawyers

TRUTH: Yes, many practices in the legal profession are difficult to change. However so many lawyers have recognized the need to adapt their practices to modern realities, and work hard to ensure they provide services that are relevant to the modern business.

We've been actively thinking, reading and exploring about challenges facing the modernization of the legal profession for more than five years. We even host a podcast on the topic! We'd love the opportunity to share these learning experiences with you.
