Business Law

Structures and Entities

When you start a business, a venture or a project, you will have an idea and the expertise to see it through. But you really need a lawyer to help with the heavy lifting – that is our expertise and we have decades of experience in making it happen for you.

We can help you choose the most appropriate entity or entities to operate your business, (and we will explain it to you in simple English, with diagrams), we will then assist your business formation, draft all necessary documents, and much more.
