Legal Life Lesson: Give “Thanks” to your strategic business partners!

Introduction: What Should You Take Away?

I LOVE Kendrick Law Practice’s strategic business partners…and you should LOVE your strategic business partners as well. KLP’s strategic business partners not only help us with client referrals and leads, but they are KEY to providing comprehensive, well rounded services to our clients and prospective clients. On behalf of KLP and the hundreds of business clients we have served and will serve, we want to say THANK YOU to you this Thanksgiving season.

My Story

It’s no secret that KLP’s mission is to keep business owners “IN business and OUT of Court”.  One way to do this is to not only be the BEST business attorney I can be but also to connect clients, prospects and strategic partners with each other and strategic partners that can help with banking, accounting, social media, etc. This way we provide the utmost VALUE to our clients.

A few lessons to be learned: Call to action!

Give these strategic partners a call TODAY and tell them KLP sent you. I am confident they will take care of your non-legal needs. NOTE: This is Step 10 of our “1 Hour Business Legal Consultations” that we offer for $150.00. There are nine (9) more steps of useful information. We are waiting to consult with you TODAY so give us a call to schedule your appointment at (678) 739-8109.

DISCUSSION QUESTION: What is keeping YOU from moving forward with retaining an attorney to draft the documents on this checklist?

**The “Legal Life Lessons” Series was started by Attorney Kendrick in 2012 as a way to showcase real life legal situations that either she has experienced or those within her networks have experienced. The goal is to move away from boring, white paper style discussions about the law and focus on creating comfortable conversations about real experiences in the life of Georgia business owners.**
