I represent business and business owners with all of their legal needs, ranging from establishing the appropriate legal entities, to preparing LLC operating agreements and shareholder agreements, to providing help in preparing and reviewing contracts. I assist buyers and sellers of businesses. I prepare and prosecute trademark applications and deal with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on a regular basis.

As part of business representation, I prepare and review employment agreements for both business owners and key employees. I prepare nondisclosure and confidentiality agreements to protect secrets, as well as noncompetition agreements.

I represent medical practices, working on shareholder issues and employment agreements for physicians and other professionals.

I represent buyers and sellers of commercial real estate. I prepare and review commercial leases.

I serve as a corporate director and have experience with ESOPs.

My goal is to provide timely, efficient, and effective legal representation.
