Business attorneys can make sure that your contracts are drafted in a manner that makes all your terms clear, and you have the protection you need (proactively and defensively). 

What do you need most? Almost always, contracts with customers and vendors, usually with key employees, and for internal company operation. You want to cap or exclude your liability, minimize warranty obligations, assure compliance by the other party, recover attorney fees in winning disputes, provide favorable termination text, and minimize statutory claims like those covering unfair trade practices and payments to or from contractors to subcontractors. It goes without saying, to buy or sell a business, or its assets, you need not just strong contracts but proper negotiating protocol and due diligence evaluations. Confidentiality and protection from competition are key points in all personnel dealings. Employee handbooks, employee authorizations and acknowledgements, are also almost universally handled early on. That way things are often nipped in the bud. Same with required right of rescission notices and other consumer disclosures. Contrary to popular belief, not just any written agreement serves as a sufficient legally binding document. Doors are often to client detriment left open such as: not excluding unwritten or unsigned changes; not limiting an arrangement solely to events covered by your contract; avoiding technically unfavorable contract clauses; and limiting jurisdiction and venue provisions to those favorable to you. No one wants and leaving ambiguities.  By having a business attorney draft your contracts, he can anticipate potential problems before they are at hand.
