A lot of people ask me about why I charge a Consultation Fee of $300. Employment Law is different from other areas of the law. For example, with a traffic accident case, a lawsuit can be filed shortly after the accident. So a number of attorneys provide free consultations to individuals because a decision on filing a lawsuit can be made shortly after.

For people with Employment Law issues, the situation is a lot more complicated. Employment law requires employees and former employees to follow a “process” or protocol in order to address their issues. The purpose of meeting with me is to find out where you are in that required process and what options you may have.

The consultation fee is to make sure that only people who are serious about pursuing a path that may result in a lawsuit meet with me. The fee is also based on my years of training and experience to help guide you to the next steps. You are getting the benefit of my real world experience in employment law and other areas of the law. That is why a Consultation Fee is required.

Many companies may accumulate various types of assets over time, some of which may be integral to everyday operations. However, businesses in Hawaii may also have assets that do not seem nearly as important, and they may wonder if retaining possession of these items is the best option. There could be various situations in which a business might choose to sell off certain assets but preparing to navigate this process can be somewhat intimidating at times.

Knowing the scenarios in which selling business assets might be the most favorable path could prove vital to preparing to protect a company’s interests, and some examples of reasons to sell assets may include:

  • Improving value: There could be a variety of situations in which selling business assets may improve the value of a company and taking such steps may help promote continued growth.
  • Financial well-being: Selling assets could also help increase available cash flow or help stave off unfavorable results should a company face periods of financial strain.
  • Change of focus: Selling assets that fail to perform or serve no purpose could also help cultivate growth by shifting a company’s focus toward more fruitful endeavors.

In some cases, assets that do not play a role in operations might serve little purpose and selling these assets may simply act as a way to make a profit.

While there may be numerous circumstances in which selling business assets may be vital to protecting the well-being of an endeavor, it may also prove a complex process. Business owners in Hawaii who are weighing the possibility of selling assets could consider speaking with an attorney prior to choosing a path. An attorney can help a client prepare to make informed choices about his or her options and assist in preparing to navigate every stage of the subsequent asset sale process.
