WHO IS YOUR
BUSINESS LAWYER?

BUSINESSES - From Start Up to Growth to Exit 

BUSINESS FORMATIONS  - Starting a business is hard because no one tells you about the business of running your business.  We don't just form your business (typically an LLC but also LPs or corporations), we also talk to you about the back office and some common pitfalls.  We have great connections and help you find other trusted advisors like CPAs, insurance agents, bookkeepers and more.  Like our estate plans, we do business formations on a fixed fee.  

 

EMPLOYMENT OR INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR CONTRACTS - Your business is unique.  We try to understand your business when we create documents for you.  We also try to create documents that can be used again and again for other employees and contractors with some minor customization.  We are interested in building a relationship with you.  The more you can count on us to help you put systems in place to scale, the better.  

LEASING- When you sign a lease, you are entering into a 3 to 5 to 30 year old relationship.  As a result, it makes sense to consider how each party wants to handle maintenance and repairs and alterations and assignments/subleasing and a lot more.  We help to get deals done by knowing what provisions are "market".  We aren't afraid to tell our clients that they are demanding something that is out of step with the market.  That said, our goal is to always help our clients understand the risk so that they know what they are signing.  

BUSINESS OR REAL ESTATE PURCHASES OR SALES - It is important to have an experienced lawyer by your side when you are buying or selling a business or commercial real estate.  It's important to understand the representations and covenants that the seller should be giving and what due diligence the buyer should be doing.  It's about making sure all of the "i"s are dotted and the "t"s are crossed at closing.  Like most things in business, the goal is to assign risk where it should be assigned.  

CONTRACTS - If you have a contract that needs to be written or a deal that needs to be done, we can get it done.  We bring almost 25 years of experience.  That's almost 25 years of solving problems.

OUTSIDE GENERAL COUNSEL SERVICES - Growing companies may think they want to hire a junior part time lawyer.  If you work with us as your outside general counsel, we have the capacity to staff it with a partner, an associate and a paralegal.  As a result, you can get the correct level of services that you need at a flat fee price that makes sense for your business.  With this type of engagement, you can have an experienced attorney at your high level meetings and that experienced attorney will manage the associate and paralegal on routine matters.  It's a great way to bring more experience and expertise into your business so that risk can be managed every day.
