SMALL BUSINESS CONSULTING

You're an "entrepreneur?" Elegant title, indeed; but, it's no easy task.  Whether you're looking to start a business, thinking about its structure, trying to protect yourself, or wondering about a specific document, reach out to us to get some direction.

Navigating the Legal Stuff

How We
Can Help

Whether you’re looking to start up a new business or grow (or maintain) your current small business, we can help you deal with a variety of things.  Our small business consultations provide you with a fixed-fee payment option where you can run various questions by us.  We will identify various legal issues and provide you with general information during the consultation.

If there’s a specific agreement that you and/or your small business is trying to draft or understand, we can go through it as well; however, our discussion at this stage will be limited to general information about the agreement and specific legal services will require a separate retainer agreement.

If there’s a lawsuit or legal claim that you and/or your small business is trying to wrap your mind around, we can also go through it as well; but, again, our discussion at this stage will be limited to general information and any specific legal services will require a separate retainer agreement.

All you may need is an initial consultation to help you navigate the legal stuff in your business’s life.  But we’re also available should you need to retain us for a specific legal service.  If your business needs extremely specialized legal advice on any issue, we can also provide you with referrals.

Either way, our small business consultations provide you with compelling value and a perfect starting-point to navigate through legal issues pertaining to your business.  By helping you navigate through these issues, our hope is that it’ll free up your time to focus on what you’re good at – starting or growing your business.

Please contact us or use the Requisition Form below so we can discuss the scope of our small business consultation.  We’ll first obtain information about what you’re looking for and whether you’d like us to review any documents.  Then we’ll process your request into one of the below Tiers.  We’ll send you a limited-scope retainer agreement outlining the scope of our services and we can book a time to talk.

I'm convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.
