What Sets Us Apart?

We are business lawyers. We've been representing businesses and business owners for over 30 years. When you like what you do you do it well. And we like what we do. Transactions, financing, securities compliance, private placements, banking, structuring, asset protection, wealth transfer. If it relates to a business we've had the pleasure of assisting a client in capitalizing on an opportunity or navigating through challenging issues. Longevity speaks to experience, knowledge, acumen. That is what sets us apart.

More About Us

For more than 30 years we’ve been invited into the board rooms, C suites and off-site meetings of our clients. We provide our legal analysis to our business clients. And we learn and experience the business and strategic issues and opportunities of our clients. We represent public companies; private closely held companies; family multi-generational businesses.
