Oklahoma businesses face many legal risks that can have significant consequences. Working with a knowledgeable attorney can help a company identify and mitigate these risks.
Businesses may face contract disputes, such as disagreement about terms, scope, or performance. They must comply with federal and state employment laws regarding minimum wage, overtime pay, discrimination, harassment, and worker classification. They may also face legal action related to trademarks, copyrights, or patents.
Oklahoma businesses must comply with state and federal regulations in areas including environmental protection, consumer protection, and data privacy. Businesses that manufacture or sell products may face legal action related to product defects, injuries, or property damage caused by the products. And companies must comply with corporate governance laws, such as shareholder rights, board of directors, and record-keeping.

Dedicated Law Firm
Building a relationship with a dedicated law firm such as Davis Business Law is important because it provides the business with a reliable and consistent source of legal advice and support. Unlike a one-time legal consultation or hiring a lawyer on an as-needed basis, building a relationship with a dedicated law firm creates a long-term partnership that allows the firm to understand the company’s operations and legal needs.
This deeper understanding can lead to more effective legal solutions tailored to your business’s unique circumstances. Additionally, having a dedicated law firm can provide a company with peace of mind, knowing they have a trusted resource to turn to for legal advice and support whenever needed.
Finally, building a relationship with a dedicated law firm can also help a business save time and money. By having an established relationship with a firm, a company can avoid the time and expense associated with finding and hiring a new lawyer each time a legal issue arises. A pre-existing relationship with a firm allows the business to focus on its core operations and leave the legal issues to the experts.

Helping Your Business Succeed
Davis Business Law’s attorneys can help your business succeed by providing legal guidance and expertise in many areas. A business attorney can help ensure your business follows state and federal law. This oversight can help protect your business from legal challenges that could harm your company’s reputation, financial stability, and future success.
A business attorney can also help draft and review contracts with suppliers, customers, employees, and other stakeholders to ensure the terms of these agreements are fair, legally binding, and minimize potential risks and liabilities.
An attorney can help protect your business’s intellectual property, such as trademarks and copyrights, which can prevent others from copying or using your intellectual property without permission.
