_We represent all types of business concerns finding themselves in need of quality, diligent, cost effective legal representation. We commonly represent plaintiffs, but equally skillfully defend the interests of business persons sued in personal injury, fraud, property damage, contractual and a host of differing types of claims.
Over the past 20 years, we have built a solid reputation representing a variety of businesses, including restaurants, medical clinics, supermarkets, hardware franchisers, telecommunications firms, financial institutions, contractors, manufacturers, vendors, distributors, brokers, retailers, etc. We also negotiate sales and purchases of businesses and real estate, draft leases and stock option agreements, settle tax claims, form all types of legal entities, address zoning issues, process property title claims and aggressively deal with collection matters.
In general, we are knowledgeable about most all issues facing the business person and entity. Our interest is in helping our clients to close their deals. If issues arise, we are experienced litigators. This means if you must go to court or arbitration for resolution, you will not be "referred out" to a litigation firm. We are business lawyers that litigate every day and will be with you every step of the way.
Our extensive background in the world of commerce allows us to evaluate issues of business law through the eyes of the business person. We recognize the need to balance the desire to enforce a deal, recover funds or defend against suits, with the potential costs of litigation. Respecting the clients desire to control legal costs, we obtain quick answers to legal questions, and resolve legal issues in an expeditious and highly competent manner.
"We also fully understand the needs of the business person. We approach their cases with an eye toward maximizing results, yet simultaneously keeping legal fees at reasonable levels."
