New York and New Jersey Small Business Lawyer

Starting a new business can be a daunting task.  Odds are you left a secure job or venture because you thought you could do it better and wanted to be your own boss. That entrepreneurial spirit will serve you well as you work tirelessly to grow your small business or startup.

Most new small business owners focus us on the commercial details of their new business venture (for example, the products or services that the small business will offer, the pricing, and how the small business will acquire and retain new clients or customers).  Naturally then, new small business owners do not appreciate the numerous legal issues that they will face right out of the gate and some of the risks they could easily mitigate with the proper guidance of a small business lawyer.

  • Drafting website privacy policies, terms of use, and terms and conditions
  • Negotiating and drafting all types of contracts
