While many entrepreneurs may have a brilliant idea, getting a new business up and running only to face a litany of legal hurdles can pose a serious challenge. Our Business Solutions team assists fledgling businesses at every phase from formation to strategic development decisions. Once in operation, we continue to assist by crafting a business environment that helps minimize, or outright avoid, the possibility of litigation. Be it corporate formation, buyouts, or value creation through investment, we pride ourselves on providing our clients with demonstrated insight and expertise to help them achieve their business goals.
FORMATION & STRATEGY
Formulating a clear strategy and laying the groundwork for success are some of the most important, yet difficult challenges faced by new businesses. From formation and day-to-day management to investment, operations, and strategy, our team is experienced at counseling all types of inceptive business ventures. From the outset, we take the time to walk you through the various issues you'll be facing and provide sound guidance thereon. Our aim is to have you to consider us your "in-house" counsel for the life of your business.
Ventures in which we have proudly assisted include:
When we represent clients in business disputes, whether we are defending the client or filing a lawsuit to protect the client’s business interest, we first find out from the client what the dispute is about and how we can best serve the client to achieve the goal that they want. Is it a pure cost of business matter that should simply be resolved as quickly as possible or are “bet-the-company” issues at stake? Once we determine the best approach for the client and the situation, we do not simply “run the meter” because we know that legal fees incurred directly impact our clients’ bottom line. Instead, we aggressively push the litigation in order to best achieve the goal in the most cost effective and efficient manner possible. Our lawyers bring extensive big law firm experience to our practice, giving us the knowledge, skill, and resources to fully protect our clients. Nonetheless, we keep our practice small so that we can build strong relationships and provide the highest levels of personal service and attention.
