I regularly represent companies from start-up stage to full maturity in a variety of matters, including incorporation and initial capitalization, corporate governance, executive compensation, equity plan adoption and administration, loan facilities and other business transactions. As a business lawyer for over twenty years in organizations ranging from large, publicly-traded corporations to individual start-ups, I work to understand the nature of my clients’ businesses to better serve their needs. While a many lawyers work just with the law, a true business lawyer strives to understand the business aspect of the legal decision you make.
Advising small businesses is one of the most rewarding aspects of practicing law because it is the art of avoiding problems before they happen; it’s truly planning ahead. Whether you’re just starting a business or need ongoing legal advice, I can counsel you with regard to corporate structure, tax planning, intellectual property protection, human resource issues, financial reorganizations, contract drafting, trademark registration, mergers, acquisitions, sales, liquidations, and much more.
