In addition to advising on general business law concerns, we can assist with setting up a business, provide guidance for mergers and consolidations, work to resolve business disputes and conflicts, and assist with and supervise litigation to achieve optimal client outcomes when necessary. 

We also work with lenders, developers, businesses, business owners, and individuals to navigate the complexities of commercial and residential real estate transactions, disputes, and dispute resolutions.
