The attorney who understands an entrepreneurial organization at different stages of growth may be better able to anticipate the problems the organization may face over the long term. Legal issues for small businesses, for example, generally include the appropriate choice of business structure, protection and management of intellectual property, and effective management of human resources, which have all been affected by the technologies that are reshaping American society and its workforce. The attorney who understands the stages of smallbusiness growth, even in a general sense, may have a more effective lens" for providing legal assistance to a small business. This understanding also may help attorneys to more effectively market their legal expertise to an entrepreneur based on the unique needs of the entrepreneurial organization.
