Closely-Held Businesses

We work with all kinds of closely-held businesses, including Limited Liability Corporations (LLCs), Partnerships, S Corps and other small businesses.

We want to help you understand the legal relationships and risks that exists in running your business. We emphasize the importance of taking preventative rather than reactionary measures to help you thrive and ensure your business is safe from legal vulnerabilities.

An individualized approach

We take the time to get to know the ins and outs of your business. Every business is unique—we want to understand your goals, operations and nuances to get a complete understanding before providing guidance.

For example, when representing a local grocery store, we take the time to listen to the owner’s concerns involving their distributors. We get to know their relationship with their employees, how they make important business choices, and how different elements such as taxes will reflect on their decision making.

We take a much broader approach to your business than most law firms. One of our founding partners is a Certified Public Accountant and our team includes many other skillsets and fields of expertise in addition to law. That means we can help you look at the big picture and provide our legal guidance in the context of everything else your business is doing.

Litigation support

Unfortunately, no matter how well prepared you are, if you’re like most small businesses, it’s only a matter of time before you get sued. Even something as simple as someone slipping outside of your storefront can have legal implications. So you want to make sure that you have all of your legal bearings in place before these things occur. Getting sued is never fun, but having an existing relationship with us before you get sued will substantially reduce the stress and potential financial devastation.

Regulatory compliance

We help businesses comply with local Philadelphia regulations, draft contracts for our clients, and ensure that we nurture the growth of your closely-held business. Because of our diverse experience with businesses of all entity-types in many different industries, we can help you confidently navigate expansion, real-estate transactions, hiring, and the many other steps in growing your successful business.

Startup guidance

If you are a startup looking for guidance on how to set your company up properly, or a business owner looking to maximize your legal protection, we’ll work with you to ensure that you can grow your business without worrying excessively about legal issues. You can focus on the work you do best, knowing we have your back.
