THe Services


 

legal consulting

Finding an attorney can sometimes seem like a daunting task. In fact, there may be times when you really only need an attorney to make sure you're on the right page or to provide you with consultation services as you work on a project. You've gotten most of the work done, but you want to have an attorney to call...just to double-check. 


business in-house counsel

Companies should not have to forgo in-house counsel just because they're small, new, or under-financed. Establishing an in-house counsel relationship with an attorney by retaining legal services in advance can save you time and often save you money also. As your company's needs grow and change, you will have counsel who grows with you, someone who knows and understands your business needs.


collaborative law services

When issues threaten to divide and conquer your company, we sometimes think that a lawsuit is the answer. But lawsuits can be expensive. Even worse, they provide an opportunity for your private business matters to become publicly scrutinized. Whether it's a contractual dispute with an outside party or an internal matter among the business owners, partners, or employees, when your business brand is on the line, you need to consider every possible option for resolution.


workshops & seminars

Whether you need workshops to teach your employees about your company policies or workshops for students learning about legal issues relating to starting a business, we welcome the opportunity to work with you to craft the workshop that fits your needs. Past workshops have included: social media law, starting a business, independent contractor agreements, film financing, employee v. independent contractor status, and more. 


speaking engagements

The firm works with a variety of businesses, universities, event planners, corporate trainers, and organizations in meeting their needs for speaking engagements. If you have an event with breakout tracks, networking occasions, keynotes, roundtables, or hands-on sessions, the firm has the experience to present on a long list of topics of interest relating to small businesses, entrepreneurship, social-legal issues relating to business development, new media, and many emerging and trending topics in our practice areas.
