Business Law

Proactively supporting companies so that they may focus on the business at hand.

Business owners seek experienced legal guidance as a critical element in keeping their enterprises healthy and growing. Coming from a wide range of business models and backgrounds, my clients often hail from the consulting, health care, construction and real estate industries. Private business principals look to my proven ability to: balance and define ownership rights and responsibilities; implement effective company governance vehicles; complete favorable contract negotiations; prevent and resolve legal disputes; and navigate real estate transactions.


I often work with an organization over the span of its life cycle; from formation to ongoing legal tasks to exit planning and implementation. My mission is to pro-actively deal with legal issues while strengthening the owner’s vision for the business. Thus, strong partnerships are forged that result in achieved goals and long-term success. In the area of Business Law, I provide the following services:
