Owning and operating a business in California can be a challenge.  From launching your business with the correct documents to ensuring that your contracts protect your best interests and are binding, having an attorney on your side is not only a good idea, it is a necessity. 


How do you become an LLC or a Corporation, which business entity is right for you?  Forming a business entity can seem like a daunting task. I can help advise you on the pros and cons of different business entity designation, file documents with the Secretary of State, The Business Oversight Committee, and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). I can also tailor Articles of Incorporation or Organization, and Bylaws to suit the unique needs of your particular business. 


My favorite thing about Business Law is seeing my clients' ideas turn into a reality.  One day you are sitting around having coffee talking about how great it would be to have your own coffee shop, hair salon, IT Company, etc. . . . and the next thing you know you're actually doing it: providing services to your community and building your own unique brand.  As you grow I can help create the contracts and other legal documents you may need to ensure you are in compliance with the law and minimize your risk of liability. I can also represent you in court should the need arise.  


I offer a unique package of legal services for businesses seeking the security of an in-house lawyer without the expense of a full-time salaried employee.  My full legal services for businesses are available through the Outside-In-House Counsel Program. The program allows your business to have their own in-house attorney. You pay one flat rate so there are no surprise bills for legal services. I can review or draft business contracts, provide legal advice and if needed represent your company in court.  


Enrollment in the Outside-In-House Counsel Program is very limited so please call for availability.
