Employment Matters

As a small business owner, you wear many different hats . . . even if you have a great team working with you. It seems like everything is pulling at your time. You don’t have time to constantly deal with worries about lawsuits, personal liability, contractual protections, and all the other legal issues a business owner faces on a regular basis. We understand the worries and concerns of a small business owner. How? Because we are small business owners too.

Our Business Law Services

We understand that businesses routinely need objective, trusted legal guidance just as much as large multi-national businesses.

You also must individually navigate financial, estate planning, and liability issues, which are no less important for you than for the officers of national and international corporations.

You face many issues, including:

    • forming your business in the most tax-efficient way
    • protecting your personal assets from business liabilities
    • leasing or purchasing real estate for offices or facilities
    • hiring and disciplining employees
    • entering agreements with customers and suppliers
    • maintaining insurance
    • collecting accounts receivable
    • intellectual property and trade secrets, and
    • merging or selling your business

The entrepreneurial spirit is what led us to form our firm and what keeps us striving to help other business owners create the business and legal foundation they need to ensure successful growth . . . so they can spend more time with family, on vacation, or maybe even starting their next company!

Our combined experiences include being a high-level executive, an attorney and a small business owner, combined with formal business education.

This background helps us recognize the legal and the practical needs of a business, its owner(s), and its employees – their emotions, fears, and concerns. Let us worry about it so you don’t have to!

Our approach is one of walking (or running) alongside you in navigating the sometimes treacherous roads of business ownership.

We truly care about our clients and consider it our mission to help you reach the goals you have for your business by taking a creative approach to complex business issues. We present legal issues in a practical, common sense way so that you can fully understand the business and legal issues of each decision and how it affects you and your business – together we can then craft a solution based on a level of risk acceptable to you. Whether you need help forming your business, running your business, buying or selling your business, or you need counsel regarding transitioning your business to the next generation, we can provide the representation you value and deserve.
