Our attorneys identify potential liabilities and help you create strategies for the protection of this crop year and beyond.
BUSINESS SERVICES & EMPLOYMENT
Whether you run a small shop, a growing services business, or an eCommerce website, all businesses need to minimize their legal liability and risk. Our lawyers will assess the structure of your operation, such as the types of products you sell, who your consumers are, what type of entity you should create (LLC, Corporation, etc.), and so on. From there, we will tailor the right risk plan, complete with the correct filings, and more, so you can worry less about liabilities and concentrate on growing your business. We help our clients draft and negotiate contracts relating to your customers, physical and digital space, employees, suppliers, and distribution.
BUSINESS STRATEGy, corporate governance & shareholder disputes
The startup and small business marketplace is still a new and fierce frontier that requires legal advice from attorneys who are deeply entrenched in the particulars of new ventures. A lack of a successful business strategy can result in disputes that are distracting and expensive. We offer a competitive advantage that can help you save money and make more of it in the long run. We’ve steered businesses in a variety of industries with a balance of legal and business strategies that had clear execution and built-in problem-solving contingencies. Our holistic approach is essential to any company looking to grow.

Demystifying secured transactions is in itself a creative practice. Business transactions are constantly in flux, so the laws must adapt quickly. We strive to anticipate these changes so you can focus more on maximizing the value of your deal. We protect our client's interests in the boardroom when the deal is closed, in the courtroom when the deal doesn't go as planned, and in the bankruptcy court if the deal implodes.
ESTATE PLANNING & PERSONAL SERVICES
We want to help you protect what you've worked hard to build. Tell us your goals and we can work collaboratively to develop a plan for your family's future. The world of estate planning is ever growing and evolving. Your life and your family circumstances are ever changing too.

Proper estate planning requires finesse, strategic structuring, and, in many ways, empathy. At the end of the day, this process is profoundly personal. We can help you take care of your family, and the generations to come.

Maintaining your integrity is an inseparable part of your business. When that integrity is challenged, conflict ensues. A successful case requires creativity and flexibility. Sometimes the most fulfilling solution to a conflict involves mediation or settlement agreements. However, should the occasion arise, our lawyers are more than prepared to move into the courtroom. No matter the problem, our clients have always walked away from their disputes or deals knowing that their core interests were preserved.
Manufacturing and technology are so pervasive that we can’t remember having ever lived without them. They make our lives simpler, but behind the curtain are fluctuating challenges; challenges that our firm stays a step ahead of. We’ve helped engineers, manufacturers, distributors, and those who work with them to protect their creations. We’ve also negotiated purchasing and partnership agreements for larger companies looking to broaden their horizons
