common sense approach
Business is complex. Your business is complex. Whether you are in a start-up mode, untangling the knots of buy-sell questions, buying or selling part or all of a business, dealing with employees, negotiating contracts, you make thousands of decisions every day. Who do you turn to for counsel, advice and direction? Is there someone who understands you, your business and what matters to you? Who do you trust?
deal makers not breakers
Let’s admit it. The day of handshake deals is gone. But we all want the process of documenting a loan to be sane and want the deal to close. When bankers get a lawyer involved with their loan, they are depending on their choice to minimize the bank’s risk as much as possible without killing the loan or alienating the customer with demands or the cost of the loan documentation.

live and leave your legacy
The statistics remain constant: 70% of the population does not have a current estate plan. Among those with a net worth over $10 million, 37% haven’t even done a will. To state what we all know but don’t like to admit, few of us get any advance warning. We would like to believe the myth, that we always have more time. The truth: we can enjoy the best life brings, but we have to plan for the unexpected. The irony is that doing the latter increases the former.
trusted member of your team
Companies employ attorneys when they need heightened and comprehensive attention to both their legal issues, and how those questions touch on so many aspects of the business at hand. These lawyers often bear the title of “General Counsel.”
shaping the future
We’ve said it before. Many people ignore planning when it comes to their estates. Even more business owners neglect the attention they know they should give to the immediate and long-term future of their company.
PROBATE & TRUST ADMINISTRATION
implementing your plan
It has been said that the mortality rate continues to hover right around 100%. As funny as that saying is, you put the plans for your estate, finances, business and life in place because it is also true, whether we like it or not.
