Corporate Practice

We serve as outside general counsel for our clients by providing strategic business counseling across many industries.

“Our firm was founded because we enjoy working with entrepreneurs. When I practiced at a large firm, smaller business clients were routinely overlooked and underserved… they were denied the quality representation they deserve due to their size. Now, it is exciting to be a valued team member for our clients and support the growth of their business.”

With our corporate practice, we represent a broad range of clients, from small business owners to startups to small, middle market companies, from a variety of industries, especially entertainment and technology.

We have extensive experience with corporate formations, both buy-side and sell-side transactions, including stock and asset sales and purchases, mergers and acquisitions, real estate and other business transactions.
