Most small-to-medium businesses typically do not require full time in-house counsel, but it’s good to know someone has your back. Outsourcing your legal needs to a firm with a team of experts in a wide range of business areas is smart. It’s cost-effective and gives you access to the legal expertise required for your specific matter each time.
Whether you have an LLC or corporation, establishing sound corporate governance principles and procedures is necessary, not only to meet regulatory requirements, but to set the responsibilities and objectives of the business, management, shareholders, investors and Board of Directors. Our team will draft bylaws and certificates, LLC Company agreements, handle foreign entity registrations, manage corporate minute books, and counsel your team on compliance, liability, and best practices. Because each organization is unique, we will work with you to develop corporate governance policies to reflect your business objectives.

Cost-Effective Dispute Resolution
Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is increasingly being used to resolve business disputes and including an ADR clause in the contract is becoming commonplace. Many businesses are using various methods of ADR including negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and conciliation. ADR most often saves money and speeds up the settlement process. It allows our adept attorneys to be creative and collaborate, making room for resolution and settlement.
