Dale & Eke is taking the COVID-19 outbreak very seriously.  So, for the purpose of maintaining social distancing under CDC guidelines and to promote the health and safety of our clients, visitors and staff and reduce the spread of COVID-19, our physical office will be closed until further notice.

For the time being we are limiting all in-office meetings to those clients and potential clients who are not feeling ill or who have not shown signs of illness.  However, we are recommending that, unless you make other arrangements with your attorney, all client and potential client meetings occur via telephone or video conferencing.  If you have any paperwork for us that you need to drop off, please use the mail slot outside of the front door to our office.

We can still be reached at our office telephone number (317-844-7400). Your call will be answered by our office phone system and you may leave a voicemail in the general mailbox or with a specific attorney. All voicemails left in the general mailbox will be routed to the requested attorney or staff.

You may also email the firm through its website at  www.daleeke.com.

We will continue to monitor this evolving situation and adjust procedures as necessary.  Your health and safety, and the health and safety of our attorneys and staff, is our highest priority.  We thank you for your patience and understanding during these uncertain and unprecedented times.

Seek the help of an attorney when starting a business

Whether you are going into business as a sole proprietor or are creating a partnership, you should always seek the help of an attorney when starting a business. There’s so much at stake, including your financial wellbeing, that you should not enter into such a venture on your own. Starting a business takes a lot of hard work and know-how. Here’s how an attorney can help you move the process forward correctly.

One of the most important reasons you need to work with an attorney when starting a business is because he or she will be able to find problems with your legal documents. You don’t want to miss certain laws your company must follow, which could land you in hot water. An attorney has the knowledge to thoroughly review your documents to ensure accuracy and compliance.

When you work with an attorney while starting a business, you will have peace of mind that you are moving in the right direction. If you aren’t sure about how to register your business name, file tax paperwork or acquire trademarks; an attorney will make this process much easier on you and everyone else involved.

Starting a business with the help of an attorney allows you to focus on getting the business up and running so you can begin filling orders, talking to customers, bringing on clients and more. You don’t have to spend all of your time sifting through the law, legal documents and other paperwork.

Now that you have an understanding as to how important it is to have an attorney by your side when you start a business you can get the ball rolling. Don’t make decisions without first consulting your attorney. Make sure he or she reviews all of your documents so that you are not making serious mistakes.
