What are Business Lawyers?

“Business lawyer” is a term commonly used to refer to a lawyer who advises clients on business relationships, transactions governed by the Uniform Commercial Code, company formations, regulatory/compliance, and contract law.

Our business lawyers near NYC provide practical and creative legal counsel while assisting clients in complying with regulatory, statutory and other legal mandates. Our business lawyers share our clients’ entrepreneurial passion and deliver responsive representation that is important for successful organizations.

We often act as outside counsel for startups and small businesses who need a team of lawyers on call, without having the expense of an employed in-house legal team.

Why Do I Need a Business Lawyer?

Listening to our clients and establishing meaningful relationships are keys to our success. Regardless of whether we are representing you in a business transaction, or any other matter, we will provide innovative legal solutions aimed at achieving your goals.

Many times the terms of a business relationship, including the manner for resolving disputes, are crafted at the outset of such relations. The ideal time to retain a small business lawyer is prior to commencing a new business venture or relationship.
