Whether you are starting a new business or looking to protect or expand and existing operation, you want an experienced lawyer to advise you, so that you know your options and can make informed decisions.

Advice regarding business formation. We will help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of different legal structures for your business, from sole proprietorships and partnerships to limited liability companies and corporations.

We also assist clients with employment agreements, shareholder or member control agreements, buy sell agreements, and covenants not to compete.
