Tailored Business Counsel From An Attorney With An Entrepreneurial Background

Experienced Legal Support For Consultants

Consulting can be quite satisfying and lucrative. It is important to lay the proper foundation if you are forming a consultancy business. I am Arthur Warady, an attorney with decades of legal, tax and business experience. Many of my business clients are consultants who have come to depend on my advice and representation to capitalize on their industry knowledge and protect their interests.

Every Consulting Business Should Have A Legal Consultant

At my law firm, Arthur D. Warady, I represent consultants in many fields, including management, finance, software, IT, technology, cybersecurity, and more. Despite the niche knowledge and insights that you provide to your clients, you may not be well-versed in the business realities and legalities of your own enterprise. That’s where I come in.

I can provide guidance, and troubleshooting relating to the following:

  • The formation of a limited liability company (LLC) or other business entity
  • The drafting and negotiation of consultant agreements
  • Business licenses
  • Disputes with clients over payment, contract period, etc.
  • Work made for hire and other intellectual property (IP) issues

A chief danger for consultants is being sued for giving bad advice or for negligence, omissions or misrepresentation. I can make referrals to competent errors and omissions (E&O) insurance brokers, and other measures that you can take to protect your assets.

I Have Been An Entrepreneur

In addition to practicing law, I founded, commercialized, and operated several business including two software companies. I have even been awarded a U.S. patent for a system I architected. This background provides additional insight to my consulting clients in tech-related fields as well as firsthand experience starting and growing a small business.

Don’t Disregard Tax Matters

I am also a registered certified public accountant (CPA) in Illinois, and I provide “tax-aware legal care” to my clients. I can advise you on taxation off your business, whether you are setting up a pass-through entity or are consulting as a sole proprietor. You may also need to address self-employment tax and sales tax on consultant fees, if required in your state.

If you are planning to make a living as a consultant, I can help you set up your consulting practice for success. From my office in Boca Raton, Florida, I counsel consultants in Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania and New York. Call me at 305-600-2432 or email me today.
