If the business is getting into purchase or sale transactions, it is important to have a good legal backing to avoid pitfalls that may expose the business to liability and loss. This could be on issues like the timing of delivery, amount of goods, costing, and warranties and so on. Legal counsel is especially required when huge amounts of money are involved, or the business is signing on to long-term commitments like land leases.
