When you run a small business, you will have to do a little bit of everything to be successful. But one area you may want professional advice for is with the legal formation of your business. Having the proper business entity means a whole lot more than what abbreviation follows the name of your business; informed legal advice can help you grow your business.

Our business attorney has in-depth business law knowledge. We understand the challenges you face, we run our own small business: our law firm. We offer experienced advice for you throughout the life of your business, from how best to form your business to ongoing contract negotiations to real estate transactions.

Contracts can help ensure your business continues to operate successfully. Our attorneys can draft effective contracts for every aspect of your business. We can also help negotiate contracts and leases as your business goals evolve.

Our lawyers understand that issues can arise or delays occur that can impede the completion of contracts. We can help minimize the legal problems associated with contract disputes, writing effective demand letters, clarifying issues, working to mediate solutions and, when necessary, bringing your dispute to court to resolve the issue.


Our attorneys understand the broad tax and business implications surrounding many transactions. Whether you need to purchase real estate for an expansion, acquire or change a commercial lease, or sell off large-scale business equipment due to cut-backs or closings, we can help.

We know how to analyze transactions and advise of the legal, tax and business ramifications. Our lawyers can help you with the timing of real estate sales taking into account tax liability and other concerns.
