Consulting

    Attorney Eric Alan Yeaster has a Masters Degree in Business Administration (MBA).  In addition
    to offering legal advice Attorney Yeaster can also act as a consultant on business related issues
    that may or may not require legal counsel.  Most importantly, Attorney Yeaster can quickly
    identify the point in which a business issue could touch an area of the law and have negative
    consequences for the business owner, thereby warding off trouble before it even develops.  

    Rather than hiring a business attorney to clean up a mess made by a less qualified
    consultant, why not just hire a business consultant who is an Attorney?  

    Staffing and Organizational Development
    Do you have staffing needs?  Do you need to consolidate or reduce your workforce?  Do you
    have a corporate culture that seems unproductive, negative, or inefficient?  Rather than relying
    on ad-hoc hiring and firing, let us coach you through an internal hiring process that helps you
    find the right person to welcome to your team as opposed to just ‘trying out” new employees in
    a revolving door fashion, or relying on commission based recruiters.

    Corporate Efficiency and the Bottom Line
    Is your small business working harder and harder, with no noticeable impact on your bottom
    line?  Does it seem like your margins are getting tighter and tighter?  Are your costs growing,
    while revenue seems to stay the same?  Let us sit down and review your business plan.  We can
    work with you to develop strategic goals that fit your expertise and core competencies, with a
    timeline for implementation.  We can support you as long or as short as you need to achieve
    your goals.

    Marketing and Brand Image
    Is your brand tired?  Do your traditional advertising solutions seem less effective?  Do you need
    help formulating a marketing plan, or advertising budget?  We can help you develop an internal
    strategy that includes measurable metrics that illustrate the effectiveness of your marketing and
    can be used to budget your solution appropriately by reducing the activities that are less
    effective and focusing on those that are most effective.

    Paradigm Shifts and Leading Change
    Do you have a plan for the future, but not know how to implement it?  Sometimes an outsider is
    better suited to lead the changes you want to implement.  Small businesses have a social
    dynamic that spills over into the office atmosphere.  While this can be good for the comfortable
    routine of the daily operations, this atmospheric inertia can be a powerful force to overcome
    without damaging relationships among the staff.  A consultant who is not part of this culture
    can help lead change without interfering or disrupting the social dynamics of the office.  The
    consultant can operate as the catalyst of change by acting as a buffer between the leaders and
    their direct reports.  Often this can help separate the business decisions made from the people
    affected by those decisions.  We can support these activities by leading rollouts to the entire
    team, or in the background by privately coaching the leaders behind the scenes.

    Corporate Leadership and the Formalities Required of Your Entity
    Yeaster Legal can offer leadership to your organization on how to follow the corporate
    formalities required by the laws governing your entity.  Many small businesses are way too
    relaxed when it comes to abiding by these corporate formalities and only realize the
    consequence of this mistake when it is way too late.  If you do not respect the formalities
    required of your entity, neither will a Court of Law.  If a Court rules that you've run your entity
    merely as an "alter ego" of yourself then the limitation of liability offered by your entity could be
    pierced (often called "piercing the corporate veil").  If a Court allows a Plaintiff to pierce the
    corporate veil of your business then your personal assets could be exposed to liability.  To avoid
    this type of personal exposure, businesses must abide by the corporate formalities described in
    the respective legal codes governing your entity.  Yeaster Legal can help guide you through
    these codes and implement corporate procedures for you to follow that keep your business in
    compliance with the law.  Remaining compliant with the legal requirements of your entity will  
    help preserve the limitation of liability that your entity is meant to provide.

    remain compliant with employment laws and avoid exposure to employment related lawsuits.

    offer this support while at the same time reviewing your marketing and branding for compliance
    required by the laws governing your product or service.  For example: If you are marketing a
    food product, did you know that there are stringent requirements governing the labeling of your
    product right down to the sizes of the fonts and the brand name you choose?  Yeaster Legal can
    help you create an effective marketing message, while at the same time avoiding any legal
    pitfalls related to your product or service offering.
