Small Business Expansion

The goal of most startups is growth, and typically that means rapid growth. If you are looking to grow your business, then you will need sound legal advice to properly navigate around the potential pitfalls that can stall out or stop your expansion goals. The larger you grow, the more likely it is you will come into conflict with another business. Settling these disputes quickly and effectively is key to continued growth. Another major piece of the puzzle for many small business is financial backing, and we can help you determine the right partnerships and ensure that you will not get taken advantage of by thoroughly examining any and all drafts and contracts.

Business Exits

If you are looking to dissolve or sell your business, there are a great number of legalities that we can help you to consider and avoid. Whether your business exit involves a merger or acquisition, a sale of assets, or a full-scale dissolution, our attorneys have the expertise to guide you through this transition.
