General Counsel Services

People who own or manage closely-held businesses need seasoned business lawyers, just like people in large, publicly traded companies. I fill that need by serving as the client’s on-going outside general counsel. I strive to develop a close, long-term relationship with the client, and deal with your legal issues as they arise. Unlike inside counsel, you hire and pay me only when you need me.

Start Ups

I’ve helped many start-up businesses form corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, and other entities. I work with the client’s tax advisor to determine the best capital structure for the business. I provide advice regarding financing and put in place at the outset the appropriate management and decision-making arrangements. I help with key employment issues, such as executive employment agreements, stock options, stock appreciation rights and performance (phantom) stock. I develop shareholder agreements and other arrangements among the principals of the business to help smooth both daily operations and major events in the life of your business.
