Considerations for the Small Business

As a small business owner or aspiring owner, you face a wide variety of legal needs, from the initial creation or purchase of your business, through the years of hard work and growth, expansion of ownership, until the eventual sale or transfer of your business to a new owner or new generation. We can assist you to facilitate these tasks at every step of the journey.

Review of purchase and sale agreements, leases, loan documents, choice of legal entity, and questions regarding use of business names frequently arise at the inception of your business. You may also need your attorney's knowledge to identify intellectual property, employment, or litigation-related issues requiring assistance of specialized counsel.

Your attorney can help keep you up-to-date regarding the various legal issues which affect your industry or business, and will generally work with your accountant to help you respond to changing requirements concerning your business.

If it is necessary to resort to litigation or defend against it, we can help. We have successfully represented clients in corporate, employment, real estate, and other business litigation.

Please call our office for an appointment if you are interested in discussing any of this issues and to determine if we can meet your needs.
