Our business lawyers combine practical experience in the business world with expertise in legal matters affecting all aspects of business operations, from entity selection and formation through termination and wind up. We simplify the law while protecting your business interests, enabling your plans, and resolving your conflicts. We emphasize businesses need for clear guidance, staying within budget, and facilitating deal making. We are numbers oriented and have the ability to deal with complex business and financial issues, complex controversies, and complex regulations.

We are experienced in the use of the condominium forms of ownership and, in particular, office condominiums. We regularly represent clients in taxation of real estate and zoning issues. We frequently assist in planning the structure of and negotiating complex real estate transactions, as well as handling the legal analysis and documentation.

Litigation

Litigation can occur in virtually every area of the law, including business settings. While many hold themselves out as "trial attorneys," our Litigation Team brings you experience with real trial time and a demonstrated ability to litigate complex disputes all the way to verdict and appeal, if necessary. We approach cases with a team orientation so that the right attorneys are always current on issues and case status. We have the ability to communicate effectively, maintain professional relationships with opposing counsel in order to facilitate the best resolution, and access to state-of-the-art research databases.

Estate Planning

We create plans that enable you to control your property, take care of yourself and your loved ones, and transfer your property in the way you want, all at reasonable costs. These plans minimize disputes and perpetuate positive ideals while meeting goals. We believe you should review your goals, plans, and objectives regularly with counseling-oriented advisors, and learn how to administer your affairs in the most cost effective way. We encourage you to explore all planning options, avoid ineffective shortcuts and make informed decisions about who will manage your assets upon disability or death. We believe all steps in the estate planning process are important and are committed to maintaining high levels of education and training.
