What exactly is a MLM Attorney, and why should you hire one?
A MLM Attorney is a lawyer that specializes in network marketing.
In most cases, the lawyer has a strong background with the legal implications of starting, launching and growing a successful MLM Company.
A network marketing company, just like any traditional business, wants competent and professional advisers to provide solid business advice in their area of expertise.
As a result, many new MLM Companies will hire legal counsel to advise them on legal matters concerning their business.
In addition, established network marketing companies typically have a legal team, too.
Sometimes, these lawyers are MLM lawyers.
In other cases, their attorneys are intellectual property attorneys who help them protect their patents, trademarks and intellectual property.
As a distributor, you normally wouldn’t interact much with a MLM Attorney.
The only examples I could think of would be if you are suing your MLM Company or if you are trying to get legal advice about buying or selling a downline.
On the other hand, you might have to deal with a MLM Attorney if you are violating your company’s distributor agreement or if you are slandering another company online.
Believe it or not, I’ve personally dealt with several attorneys just from my content on this website.
They called me up asking me to remove a page or rewrite what I have published.
