Business Law

Business law encompasses a broad array of issues that affect your business. For long term success, companies must understand and effectively manage business structure issues, employment matters, intellectual property, contracts and business transactions, and disputes — all while ensuring compliance with numerous federal and state laws.

Having the right information at the right time is key to managing the business and legal risks that face your company. Having the assistance of a skilled business attorney can make the difference, ensuring you avoid costly and serious problems and facilitating the growth and success of your business.

Because of my extensive and broad experience — forming companies, acquiring multi-million-dollar international companies, structuring deals, drafting complex contracts, being in the trenches of government contracts, managing intellectual property issues, ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, managing employment law issues, and dealing with corporate governance matters — I know what’s relevant and I can help. I work closely with my clients, leveraging relationships with colleagues and subject matter experts when needed, ensuring I understand your business and goals. This way I provide you with relevant and timely legal advice and guidance that has a direct impact on the financial well-being and success of your company.

When you need help with a business law matter, you can be assured I will provide you with high-quality, timely and relevant legal advice at an affordable price.

I welcome you to contact me to discuss your business law needs.
