Business Transactions

Small and medium size business need efficient and quick handling of their business transactions. The truth is that a deal that van "make" a company and take it to the next level can also mean the end of the company just as quickly if something goes wrong.

In my practice, not only do provide great service and value to my client, I strive to make sure my clients understand the contracts they are signing. It is my experience is that when people understand their contracts, they are much more likely to live up to their obligations.

I represent clients in a full range of business transactions, including:
