small business lawyers

We are Small Business Lawyers in New York City, providing efficient and cost-effective legal services to New York Businesses, Business Owners, Startups, and Entrepreneurs.

Business Arbitration and Litigation

While we make it our business to keep small business owners out of court, sometimes it cannot be avoided.   We can help you enforce your rights in New York or defend any case brought against you.  We can help you in New York State or Federal Courts and all major arbitration forums. Before we begin any litigation on your behalf, we will always make sure that any litigation makes sound business sense and won’t be a waste of your time and money. As business attorneys, we are also business owners and know how disruptive and costly any lawsuit can be.

Business Partnership Disputes

We are business lawyers for business partnership disputes. Business Partnership Disputes can arise between shareholders in a corporation, partners in a partnership, or members in a limited liability company (LLC).  

Business Transactions/Corporate Law

As Business Lawyers, we can advise you on all business transactional and corporate law matters pertaining to your New York business.  While we strive to keep you informed about all legal risks and implications, we will never be in the way of your sound business decisions.  Costly litigation is prevented by careful planning of all of your business transactions.  We can help you structure, plan and implement a wide variety of business transactions and make sure that you are aware of all legal implications.
