Experience In Litigating Business Law Matters
Our strength in litigation also contributes greatly to our ability to draft your critical documents so that they stand up to legal challenges.

We have experience litigating the terms of business agreements and dissolution both by statutory dissolution and equitable distribution, as well as derivative actions brought by shareholders on behalf of a corporation.
