i'm just wondering how to prove that I have spoken with an attorney regarding the legal aspects of my business and that everything I'm doing is legal and policies are vetted. Since I am paying an attorney with particular expertise for advisory, I want to show I made the effort to the best of my knowledge to abide by the law and prevent any legal issues in the event that his advisory turns out to be poor or incorrect.
This is exactly the type of situation you want an attorney opinion letter for. It may cost more because the atty is putting it on the line but its the best way to CYA if you're testing the limits of a civil reg or statute or case law.
so what happens in the event that the attorney fails to bring up scenario A or overlooks strategy B that ends up costing me or god forbid tanking my business?
