Most business owners will only go to a lawyer if they have a problem to sort out. That makes most lawyers very reactive in the way they go about giving legal advice.
The secret of business success is to be proactive and plan for risk.
However, almost all small business owners do not have time for it or do not realise the potential mine fields set upon them by various legislations such as Employment Relations Act 2000, Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, Immigration Act 2009 et cetera just to quote a few of them.
On the other hand, how many lawyers have you come across who regularly go out of their way to advise their clients before a problem happens so that they do not get embroiled in litigation? We suggest you proactively engage your lawyer in any issue that may worry you before an issue goes out of your control.
During this holidays break, we believe it is a good time you take stock of your situation and look inwards to find any weakest link in your business operation in trying to mitigate any potential issue that may arise.
In this festival season, we wish you and all my valued clients a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
