Business Law: Guiding you through everyday business issues, including starting your business, keeping it legally compliant, drafting and reviewing contracts, and buying or selling a business.
General Counsel Service: Providing proactive advice and guidance when you need it by establishing a long-term relationship with clients.
Nonprofit Law: Recognizing and valuing your mission while navigating similar business legal issues as for-profit ventures.
Intellectual Property Law: Protecting your intangible business assets: trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets.
Employment Law: Hiring and managing employees and independent contractors.
Our small business and nonprofit clients are passionate about what they do, and they bring their experience and expertise to entrepreneurship. But they also recognize that they are not business attorneys.
You don't know what you don't know, but your business or nonprofit is depending on you to know! It's every business owner's catch-22. You can search the internet and hope you get everything right, or you can rely on trusted and experienced business attorneys.
We take the time to get to know your business or nonprofit. What is your big picture goal? What are you most worried about? We educate you about the unique legal issues your business or nonprofit faces. How does the law apply to your particular situation?
Then we craft business legal services to fit your unique needs without surprise invoices. We do most of our work on a flat fee basis (and initial consultations are always complimentary). Why? Because every business, regardless of size, needs experienced legal counsel. And contrary to popular belief, no one pays attorneys solely for their time. An attorney's real value is in their knowledge, experience, and ability to solve your problem.
Whether you are just getting started, a growing business or nonprofit hiring your first few employees, or an established organization with more complex legal needs, if you are passionate about what you do and looking for trusted legal counsel, then let's talk.
