MLM Attorney: Find and Hire a Good One

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.mlm attorney

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.

    How do you know it’s a good one? A friends referral might be a good consideration but how much do you consider your friends judgement as good? When hiring a lawyer, the judgement must always be yours. Research and checking out the lawyers background is a good way to start.

      I would argue you don’t know if you have a good lawyer unless you win! By all means, get referrals and do your research. Even then it’s still unknown whether or not you hired the right person.

    I’m thinking about attending law school in the next few years and serving as MLM Attorney sounds like a great option. I’m a distributor right now, so it would be like the best of both worlds.

    Good post. If you need a MLM Attorney (or a regular attorney) do your homework and hire the best one you can afford. It will be money well spent.

    If you’re going to start your own MLM Company I highly suggest you take the time to find a good, qualified MLM Attorney. In addition, if you are in a lawsuit with a MLM Company, make sure you get a good attorney too. Most lawyers know very little about the industry so make sure you find someone with some experience.

    If you need to hire a MLM attorney find a good one. Attorneys are a dime a dozen, but a good attorney is worth every penny you can spend.

    Excellent point. Many of us have a habit of either being very trusting or simply forgetting about dotting those i’s and crossing those t’s. Sometimes it’s a matter of forgetting that not everyone wants to do the right thing. In some cases, a dispute may arise legitimately from both parties not being clear on the legalities of a situation and their not knowing what they don’t know. Britt Britt is a good example of…well, I’m going to give Amway the benefit of the doubt here, and say of the second option. At any rate, proactive beats reactive hands down.

      Good points, Amy.

      When hiring a MLM Attorney, or any other professional, make sure you do your due diligence first. Even if you can find someone cheaper, you might not know what you are getting. You want someone with a proven reputation, who has lots of experience and provides you real value, at the price they charge you. Shop around. You’ll be amazed at what you can find.

    I think the best way to find a good MLM Attorney is through word of mouth. Talk with a few trusted peers who have hired and worked with this type of attorney before and see who they recommend. Word of mouth is usually the best way to see if someone is a good attorney.

      Clarence,

      I do think that word of mouth can be such a valuable tool when you surround yourself with people that you trust. However, just because an attorney works for one person that does not necessarily guarantee that the attorney will be a good fit for you. Word of mouth can be a good starting point but you should really reach out on your own and do some checking to make sure you get the best person.

    Research, research, research! It is an absolute must as you mentioned. If you were having a surgery done you would want to ensure that you had a surgeon that was extremely knowledgeable about the procedure at hand. In the same manner you want a MLM Attorney that is knowledgeable in the field so that when you need his/her expertise you can trust that he/she will be able to accurately provide it to you.

      Good point, Diamond. While there are plenty of laws for business and commerce, MLM’s have legalities unique to their type of business, and you want to work with someone who has specific expertise and knows what he’s doing. The “Well, I don’t normally work with MLM’s but business is business” response just would not cut it.

      I’ve never worked with a MLM Attorney personally, so I would just follow the advice mentioned in the article. Find 3-5 potential candidates, shop around, get testimonials, search for complaints and do your homework. Once you do that you should have someone good to work with.

    I’ve actually suffered from moving too quickly to secure an attorney in the past. It really is important to vet your help before you hire one, especially when you intend to put a good deal of trust into that person. Always, always check an attorney’s record before hiring if possible. Any good lawyer, even the MLM kind, should be able to refer you to a handful of happy former clients.

      Good points, James. Whether hiring a MLM Attorney, a regular attorney, or anyone else, do yourself a favor and do your due diligence. Do an Internet search with their name. Read their testimonials from their website. Talk with past, happy customers. Check the BBB and local Chamber of Commerce. If you’re going to hire someone, you want to make sure you know what you are getting. Just my two cents.
