Business and Corporate Law

We fill the role of an outside general counsel.

We understand that dealing the multitude of laws that affect a business owner can sometimes be overwhelming when a business is focused on achieving its goals. That's why we focus on getting to know our clients, understanding their business and becoming an integral part of their team. By doing this, we can assist in implementing streamlined, practical solutions—solutions that are cost-effective, forward thinking, and in total alignment with our client's objectives.

Our business law attorneys have a vast array of experience representing clients across a broad spectrum of business matters, whether the client is affiliated with a small business, a family owned and operated business, or a mid-sized to large, multistate or publicly traded company. From general business consulting to labor and employment issues, to real estate transaction matters, we offer a full range of legal services provided by a "team" of attorneys committed to helping your business succeed.

While we strive to resolve even the most contentious matter without resorting to the court system, we understand that some matters inevitably require litigation. Our business law attorneys are well-versed in recognizing these situations and, when necessary or advantageous for our clients, draw upon the expertise of our litigation attorneys to assist in preventative measures or in the litigation itself.
