Transactions.  Are you starting up, growing, or selling your business?  I can guide you through the legal necessities of business formation and growth.  As a solo practitioner, I can take the time to understand your business goals.  My goal is to maximize value and to help you achieve growth efficiently, while minimizing risk.  I will only bill you for the value that I create, not simply for time spent working on your matter.

Outside General Counsel.  Acting as outside general counsel, I can bring the experience and knowledge necessary to handle a broad array of legal and business matters whenever needed, without the expense of hiring a full-time employee.  Many of small business clients take advantage of pre-paid monthly billing arrangements, where clients may reserve a number of my billable hours per month at a significant savings.

I will help you cover all of the interrelated legal and business aspects of running a company or non-profit, including issues like: licensing, selling, acquiring, and protecting copyright, trademark, and other intellectual property assets; purchase and sale of assets; purchase and sale of equity; contract drafting and review; real estate; creditors rights; and corporate governance.

Disputes.  I focus on finding the most cost-effective and least stressful solution to conflicts arising between partners of closely held companies.  Although I have the courtroom experience to handle a case through trial, I understand that building a case toward settlement may be better for a small business, especially where the emotional cost of litigation may be at its highest.  Whether negotiating the exit of a departing member,  advising a company through a conflict between equity owners, or representing a business or nonprofit in a contract dispute before a jury, I am willing and able to deliver high-value legal services.

Online Legal Service Document Cleanup.  If you purchased off-the-shelf documents from an online legal service and the provisions of those documents are now coming into play, it's probably clear to you why those documents were so inexpensive compared to professional legal services.  I have experience repairing and replacing documents and deals which are based on common do-it-yourself legal templates.
