Business Law

Business Formation

Need help deciding on a corporate form? Want to make sure that the “understanding” you have with your business partners and investors is set forth clearly from the start in case a dispute arises? We can help with those issues and more by working with you and your accountant to determine the best approach as well as developing corporate bylaws and operating agreements to meet your specific business needs.

Business Changes

Is it time to take on a new partner in the business? Developing a corporate transition plan as you head toward retirement? Interested in leasing a new space? We handle all manner of contract reviews, shareholder agreements and other legal issues that will arise as your business grows and evolves over time.

Business Acquisitions

Buying or selling a business or most of its assets? Put our experience in handling multiple transactions for retail, wholesale, transportation and healthcare businesses to work for you.

Employment Matters

We can help your business navigate the minefield of employment matters by working with you to develop strategies to minimize risks and claims from your workforce – and we can also assist in defending against allegations and claims when they do arise. Personnel Handbooks, non-compete and non-disclosure agreements and defending against EEOC discrimination and retaliation claims, OSHA complaints and Unemployment claims are just a sample of the matters we handle in this arena.

Contract Reviews

Employment contracts, severance agreements, leases, purchase agreements – make you understand your rights and responsibilities before you sign! It is far easier to avoid a bad deal on the front end than to try and get out of one after you have signed a contract. We can help guide you through these documents and help you answer those “What if?” questions.

Contract Disputes

Is a client or customer threatening to sue your business under a contract for goods for services? Our firm has successfully negotiated and defended hundreds of contract claims against businesses made by everyone from angry mothers-of-the bride to unhappy trucking freight consignees.
