Advocate for businesses, minority and majority owners, executives and professionals.
Advocate for businesses,
minority and majority owners, executives and professionals.
I represent private business owners, majority and minority shareholders, partners, LLC Members and professional employees in litigation avoidance, dispute resolution and litigation. I have 20 years experience in all phases of business litigation and employment law. I learn about my clients’ businesses and their needs and concerns and work with each client to jointly come up with the right, cost-effective strategy for them.
BUSINESS LITIGATION AND EMPLOYMENT LAW
I don’t do everything. I don’t handle personal injury claims, criminal matters, divorces, real estate transactions, bankuptcies, etc. (I can refer you to excellent lawyers who do these things). I would rather be great at a few things than okay, or worse, at everything. Employment and business law are very complicated. There are numerous state and federal statutes, regulations, guidelines, and countless court decisions. A lawyer cannot stay on top of it all by dabbling in the fields.
OUTSIDE GENERAL COUNSEL
Join the big leagues and hire a General Counsel for your company or organization. Whether you want to impress your friends or strike fear in your enemies, you can hire me on an as-needed or continual basis to act as your outside general counsel.
SHAREHOLDER / LLC / PARTNERSHIP DISPUTES
I assist business people in their interactions with their business partners, including shareholders in close corporations, LLC members and managers, and partners in partnerships. I review, revise, negotiate and draft shareholder agreements, operating agreements, employment contracts, noncompete agreements and other types of agreements that impact these issues. I assist majority owners to deal with minority owners, including terminations.

BUSINESS OWNERS AND PARTNERS SHOULD BE PARANOID
Fox Moulder’s motto was “Trust No One.” Lawyers can understand this paranoia. Divorce lawyers know spouses cheat. Criminal lawyers know clients steal (and worse). You should know that your business partners and key employees that you trust the most can betray you.
