Harrisonburg Corporate Business and Commercial Lawyer

Staunton Business Law Attorney

Since 1972 I have helped many businesses with their unique legal needs. I have personally owned and operated various businesses using several different business entity forms, and I am familiar with the advantages and disadvantages of each. As a skilled Harrisonburg corporate attorney, I provide experienced services at reasonable, competitive prices to suit my clients' needs.

Providing Service for the Life of Your Business

The creation of a business entity is an important legal tool when starting a new business venture. Choosing the right type of business entity can protect your assets, including your home. I assist small businesses and self-employed professionals with:

  • Business organization and planning — choosing the right entity for your new business venture, whether as a limited liability company, partnership, corporation or closely-held business
  • Business trusts — a business model in which business assets and property is held and managed for the benefit of selected trustees and shareholders
  • Mergers and acquisitions — when two businesses combine with joint authority or in subsidiaries
  • Contracts — both buy/sell or lease agreements for products, services or business assets, noncompete agreements and other types of contracts
  • Liquidation/dissolution — when a business comes to an end

I provide assistance with basic forms as well as help you understand the tax implications of various transactions and operations.

Protecting Assets in Business and Civil Litigation

As an experienced trial lawyer, I provide assertive court representation in all manner of business disputes. From breach of contract issues to shareholder/partnership disputes to collection actions, I work diligently to protect your best interests.

I take the time to thoroughly understand your business by reviewing your business model, the way your operation is run and all relevant documentation to your case. I listen to your concerns and put my experience to work to achieve the best possible outcome.
