Business and Commercial Law

The firm offers representation to business clients in selecting and forming business entities. In doing so, we first determine the client’s goals and specific needs. We then examine the various options available in detail with the client in order to make the optimum decision for the client. Accounting, tax and insurance issues are among those considered and, whenever possible, the client’s other professionals in these areas are consulted in order to best serve the client. When the client consists of more than one principal, consideration is given to shareholders’ or partnership agreements. Our motto is “Good contracts keep good friends and good business relations.”

The firm also offers representation to clients that are starting, purchasing, or selling a business.
