Should You Get an Amazon Seller’s Lawyer for Selling on Amazon?

By John DiGiacomo

At Revision Legal, we firmly believe the answer is a resounding “yes!” Retaining an experienced Amazon Seller Law Firm is not just about appealing a suspension. It’s about laying the best possible foundation for success, avoiding legal problems before they happen, having peace of mind as you operate your business, and having a proven advocate ready to take action if something goes wrong. If you have questions, call us at 231-714-0100 or 855-473-8474. Here are a few of the legal services that Revision Legal can provide for your Amazon Seller Business.

Setting Up Your Corporate Entity

As with any startup business, you want to form a corporate entity for your Amazon Seller Business. If you operate your business as a sole proprietorship, you are putting your personal and family assets at risk if there is a lawsuit or a creditor claim. A corporate entity provides a shield that protects those assets. There are several options, such as corporations, S-corps, and limited liability companies. Revision Legal can provide legal advice and counsel regarding which option might be best for your Amazon Seller Business, and we can get your entity formed and registered.

Helping With Business Legal Compliance

Any business must comply with local and State laws with respect to business operations. Some businesses will need licensure and permits. If you have employees, you must comply with local, state, and federal tax and labor laws. Revision Legal is an Amazon Seller Law Firm, but we also are deeply experienced business law attorneys.

Helping With Business Operations and Transactions

If you are buying from a vendor and are paying for third-party services, like computer system maintenance, you are signing contracts. Many business contracts are straightforward, but not always. You need legal help for reviewing and drafting contracts. You also need legal assistance for business transactions like property leasing/purchasing and financing. You will also need legal services if you run afoul of any payment processor’s terms and conditions.

Protecting Your Intellectual Property

Most Amazon Seller Business owners have a basic understanding of how to avoid infringing on the intellectual property of others. Revision Legal can provide a deeper understanding of what to do and what not to do. But what about YOUR intellectual property? Revision Legal can provide legal services to help protect your business name, your trademarks, your copyrights, and your confidential trade secrets.

Helping With Amazon Compliance and Responding to Amazon Suspensions

It can be immensely helpful to have a legal professional help with questions about complying with Amazon’s terms and conditions. The best way to avoid Amazon seller account suspensions is to avoid violations in the first place. This is one key foundation to success. If you DO end up with an Amazon suspension, Revision Legal is ready to take action. We can work quickly to minimize financial loss and can respond in the manner most likely to obtain a successful result.
