"The Legal Member of Your Business Team"


Formation of Professional Entities

We advise the advantages and disadvantages of various professional entities (sole proprietorship, general partnership, limited liability company [not available yet in California for licensed professionals], and professional corporation), so you can make an informed choice.  We then prepare and file the necessary documents by fixed fees to form the chosen entity, such as articles, bylaws, share certificates, and minutes.

Early Firm Ownership

After organization, we assist you in establishing proper transfer mechanisms for unanticipated deaths and other situations, such as buy-sell agreements.  We provide real-time business counseling in addition to document preparation services.  Our strategic planning and business focus is a value-added component which we routinely supply.  When complex or specialty legal issues, such as litigation arise, we associate appropriate outside counsel and manage their activities.

Documenting Business Entities

Proper entity records and formalities regarding meetings, elections, and preparation of resolutions documenting the decision-making process help maintain limited liability protection, other than professional negligence.  We assist your firm to comply with formalities and prepare necessary compliance documentation.

We assist transfers of ownership interests, joint ventures, mergers, the purchase or sale of a professional practice or its assets, and the wind-up and dissolution of professional entities.


We advise you on employment matters such as employment agreements, policies and procedures, and compliance with state and federal labor laws, including "bounty hunter" laws and wage and hour rules.  We assist you in internal investigations of employee claims, including sexual harassment claims, counseling on employee hiring, discipline and firing matters, non-defined employee benefit plans, and advising on emerging employment issues, such as privacy, electronic communications, violence, and substance abuse issues.

Regulatory Compliance

We identify laws that affect your practice and industry and implement plans for compliance.  We identify and obtain licenses, permits, and registrations from local, state, and federal agencies.

Preventative Counseling and Internal Investigations

We provide preventative counseling and internal company audits, if necessary, to assist you to identify potential risky activity and assess the adequacy of internal policies and procedures.  We assist your firm in implementing an effective corporate compliance program.

Quick internal compliance audits often preclude civil and criminal enforcement.  Federal Sentencing Guidelines require rigorous watchfulness by business and professional executives.

Collections and Dispute Resolution [Click on link]

We resolve disputes.  We work closely with you and seek creative solutions to get the result you need.
