Agreements are fundamental to any business. But what is standard? What is negotiable? We assist clients by drafting easy to understand agreements and negotiating terms that protect key business interests.

Corporate

Corporate Finance

Employment

Your team builds your company’s value. Growing businesses have employment law needs long before they can support a fully staffed human resources department. We offer cost-effective solutions to help hire and retain staff and protect business assets. 

Intellectual Property

Next, a bit about what we don’t do . . .

If you are looking for a law firm that will take you to the ball game, get you an incredible tee time, or wine and dine you at the hottest new restaurant, you are in the wrong place. We are lawyers, not cruise directors. We put your legal services budget to work with reasonable fees for the highest quality services, not box seats and country club memberships. We like it that way; we think you will too.
