For over 30 years, I have counseled personal service and other closely held businesses and their owners in a wide array of industries including engineering, healthcare, high-tech, law, manufacturing, real estate, and retail. In advising my clients, I strive to be thorough, decisive, and results-driven.

I represent entrepreneurial professionals and businesspersons in the development of organizational structures, mergers and acquisitions, business divisions and split-ups, asset purchases and sales, general contract matters, and in dealing with the complex tax matters that often accompany both standard and unique business transactions.

I apply my extensive legal experience to assist my clients in forming partnerships, joint ventures, corporations, and limited liability companies for the provision of personal services and the ownership and operation of various business activities. From the single purpose venture to the long-term business, I am seasoned at negotiating complex agreements and transactions, exclusive service contracts, novel compensation arrangements, and exit and succession planning for business owners. I also offer my services in complex estate planning techniques.
