Business/Corporate law

We represent businesses and individuals, with a focus on legal compliance, intellectual property protection, corporate organization, and contracts. I generally help clients avoid disputes but I also help them win them.

We work in concert with our clients to assist in all aspects of a business, public or family owned, including strategic legal planning, purchases, sales, expansion, formation, licensing, employment issues, and dissolution. We strive to help our clients enhance their businesses in a forward-thinking plan to ultimately transition the next generation into the business. We help to plan whether you are a start up or already conducting business.
