I work with startups and small businesses to protect and fully utilize their three main assets: the ownership, the employees and the company property (whether that be physical assets, intellectual property, contracts, etc.). I ascertain that these businesses have the right legal structure for who they are and where they want to go. I ensure that the company has legally advantageous contracts governing the key aspects of its business. I review employment practices, contracts and handbooks to determine whether they are up to date. I evaluate whether the company’s intellectual property is properly protected. I manage any disputes, including litigation, in the most effective manner to obtain the desired result. Addressing these areas is critical when a business evolves from a “good idea” to a successful enterprise.
