Business Law

Business Law Practice

We do business law and business litigation, often acting as outside general counsel. The Chair of the firm's Business Law Practice is Gene Kelley.

How we work

We enjoy learning, and contributing to, the amazing story behind every great business. Your goal is our focus. We listen, plan, and work smart.

Who we work for

Our clients' many industries include, but are not limited to, banking, gaming, construction, distribution, health care, insurance, law firms, manufacturing, non-profits, physicians, railroad and real estate.

How we help businesses

Our firm helps businesses choose entity types and discuss how and where they should form. We help with regulatory filings and prepare incorporation articles, organization certificates, bylaws, operating agreements, shareholder agreements, and the like.

We vet financing sources and advise about employment, health care law, investigations, white collar matters, real estate, tax appeals, buyouts and compensation.

Overseeing buying and selling is a key part of our work, including asset and stock purchase agreements, indemnification issues, representation and warranty considerations, due diligence, letters of intent, and term sheets.

Outside general counsel work

As clients grow, we act as outside general counsel to meet needs and exposures that come with success. This includes industry guidance, compliance help, and prevention of business litigation

We discover, on an ongoing basis, our clients' businesses, industries and employees. This creates reflexive trust, enabling us to serve as outside general counsel. Our outside general counsel role is described in this blog post and on our "Other Practice Areas" page.

If you invest time to get to know us, so we can get to know you and your business, you'll gain a rare help for any opportunity or crisis.
