Get an eCommerce Attorney on Your Side

There is a lot of misinformation out there, and many consultants offering similar services that downplay the need for legal advice. Some of these consultants even cross the line of practicing law without a license, and their advice is often dangerous. Just as you wouldn’t hire a dentist to perform open heart surgery, you should not be hiring consultants without legal training to help make important decisions with serious legal consequences.

Work with an eCommerce attorney that understands the intricacies of selling on platforms like Amazon, and the struggles online sellers face today. An understanding of facts behind the scenes, like whether sellers have access to customer information for direct marketing purposes, who controls where Amazon FBA. inventory is sent, or who has the final say with respect to customer service between you or Amazon, can make a big difference in your case.

Advisors and consultants who are not familiar with eCommerce platforms often make assumptions about what it’s like to sell online that can damage your case. Regardless of whether you work with us or not, work with an eCommerce attorney that understands your facts. Don’t be afraid to challenge your advisor by asking questions that will help you make that determination.
