Business Law

Have you thought that it would be nice to have a lawyer to be able to run certain issues or business transactions by, or even just to consult with when you're confronted with a problem or opportunity without worrying about getting huge bill? Being small business owners too, we understand this fear. That's why we offer flat fee rates for most of our general business services and affordable outside general counsel services.

Having started and ran businesses from the ground up, we have the experience and knowledge to help you with all aspects of your business. Business law deals with the legal requirements and practical steps to form and run your business. This includes strategic planning, deciding on the organizational structure of your business, licensing and regulation compliance, risk management, drafting & reviewing partnership, operating, and employment agreements as well as contracts, negotiations, and master service agreements.

Business Formation

Starting a business is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. We can guide you through the process in evaluating and deciding on a business structure for your business which determines how your business will operate, creating and drafting a business plan, risk analysis, drafting the necessary state filing documents, EIN filing, name registrations, and operating documents.

General Business Needs

  • Drafting and reviewing contracts with vendors, suppliers, contractors, and customers. 
  • Operating agreements
  • Member / Partnership / Ownership agreements. 
  • Purchase or sale of property
  • Lease review
  • Business Transactional work
  • Risk analysis and management
  • Negotiate sales, contract terms, real estate, etc.

Business Litigation

We handle business litigation matters involving breach of contract, professional malpractice, real estate litigation, construction litigation, business tort litigation, and disputes between members or partners.

We offer contingency fee litigation services for some types of business litigation.

Outside General Counsel

While running your business you often come across areas where the advice and counsel of an attorney could help you in your strategic planning, risk management, and decisions making. We understand that not all small to medium size businesses have the budget to hire in house counsel. That's why we provide outside general counsel services for clients on an as needed basis.

Our focus is to provide day-to-day legal services on an on-demand basis. These services include risk management, employment matters, negotiating and drafting contracts, attending board meetings, real estate transactions, negotiate sales and other agreements, insurance claims, and strategic planning.
