Questions and answers regarding our legal advice

Why should we as a small company take on legal advice from outside?
Finding answers to relevant issues is sometimes challenging considering the complication of the law and the regulations thereto. Commercial Action without professional assistance can lead to significant legal troubles. The need for a legal deparment or partner therefore does not result from the size of a company but from the issues which need to be handled and resolved.
