My corporate practice covers the full life-cycle of a business.  I provide advice to entrepreneurs starting their business, helping with issues such as choice of entity, business jurisdiction, shareholder agreements and governance decisions.  As the business grows, I can help you with finance, vendor, employee and real estate agreements.  I frequently get involved in human resource issues such as employee termination.  I help businesses create, license and dispose of intellectual property.
