The decisions you make and the agreements you sign can be the difference between a business being profitable or struggling. With so much at stake, experience matters. As a business law attorney, I have represented businesses for nearly to decades in all stages of development, from initial formation to dissolution. My clients have or currently include general partnerships, franchisees, franchisors, healthcare management companies, physicians, dentists, insurance carriers, software developers,and technology service companies. I pride myself in constructing clear, enforceable agreements and helping my clients make decisions that protect their interests and avoid costly disputes down the road. Because I have represented so many types of companies and dealt with so many issues, I am able to provide my clients with a comprehensive view of the issues and pitfalls that they may face. That is the kind of experience that matters.

Sometimes despite the best of intentions, businesses disputes occur. When that happens it pays to have an experienced litigator on your side. I have successfully represented businesses and business owners in breach of contract claims, breach of fiduciary duty claims, trademark infringement cases, involuntary dissolutions of a business, shareholders/ partnerships in disputes among themselves or with others, and shareholder derivative claims, among others. I have represented clients in state court, as well as before the Federal Courts in New York, New Jersey, California, Florida and Georgia. It is because of those experiences that I recently won a judgment dismissing a breach of fiduciary duty and fraud claim against my client wherein the plaintiffs sought one million dollars in damages. In another case, I successfully won dismissal of a breach of employment contract claim in which the plaintiff sought $250,000.00 in damages. When I take on a case, I move aggressively to devise a winning litigation strategy that gets results and moves the case to completion as quickly and inexpensively as possible. Call me to protect your rights.
