*  Sound legal counsel is essential for the beginning of a successful new business. Selection of the proper business entity (INC, LLP, LLC, etc.) is just the beginning. Successful legal counsel for new businesses depends on asking the right questions.  It is essential to have in place not only an understanding but written agreements supporting decisions regarding the dynamics facing new businesses. We will review with you the issues that new businesses face at the start up. The successful operation of the business depends on establishing and maintaining the myriad of relationships that exist between business owners and investors, borrowers and lenders, management and employees, buyers and suppliers and, of course, your customers. We have the experience to get you off to a good start.

*  There are some transactions that require some degree of specialization above and beyond that which we are able to offer in-house. In our over 78 years of combined legal experience, we have established and fostered relationships with the legal community that allows us to make a focused referral to any needed specialists. We understand that making good referrals for our clients to not only to specialized legal sources but also tax, human resources, accounting and other areas is a vital part of delivering the services our clients require.
