Small business

I love helping people realize their entrepreneurial dreams and I bring practical knowledge to bear in helping my clients realize theirs. I balance my legal advice with business know-how developed over decades working in high-tech.

Helping Get Your Small Business Off to the Best Start

Creating a new business from the ground up takes initiative, ingenuity, fortitude, creativity – and planning and a lot of paperwork. I know from personal experience that starting a small business is exciting and terrifying all at the same time – and having someone knowledgeable in your corner provides the support you need to get your business off on the right foot and keep it moving in the right direction.

When I worked in high-tech, my managers often called upon me to develop new systems, develop policies and procedures, and define new tools. The skills that helped me to complete those programs successfully, coupled with a thorough grounding in the legal needs of business, assure that I can guide you through setting up your new business and getting it off to the right start.

I can help create and file the legal paperwork to set up your business to allow you to achieve your goals – by structuring the company to give you the control you want and the tax structure you need. I can negotiate and write contracts to deal with customers and vendors as your business grows. I can develop or review the personnel policies and manuals that ensure that you comply not just with the letter of the law, but allow you to be a great employer.

The rewards of owning your own business are many – the satisfaction of creating something, of being your own boss, of succeeding on your own merits. With your hard work and determination – and a little help from a business-experienced attorney like me – you will be well on your way to being a successful entrepreneur.
