Business Law

Over the years, our firm has developed a large business clientele that includes businesses that range in size from the corner drugstore to Fortune 500 companies.  Our attorneys regularly assist our clients in matters such as contract drafting and business disputes as well as in matters involving non-competition agreements and franchise law. 

 

We understand the importance of properly forming business entities for our clients and help our clients understand that forming a new corporation or limited liability company involves more than just paying a filing fee and filing some papers with the government. 

 

We ensure that our corporate clients have the proper documentation to shield them from personal liability should a claim be brought against their business.
