Support From Formation to Dissolution

We assist our clients from the very beginning of their ventures, by helping them select and form the business entity that best suits their needs. We offer ongoing assistance and advice on the myriad of legal matters that may affect the operation of a business, including transactions, protection of proprietary and sensitive information, tax strategies, labor issues, real estate, licensing, and regulatory matters. We also review, negotiate, draft, and enforce contracts that affect every facet of a business.


We understand that, for most businesses, some legal disputes are unavoidable. We stand ready to protect our business clients’ interests in state and federal courts, tribunals, and in arbitration.
