Our Business Law Practice: Business Formation, Transactions and Litigation

We at J&G know that legal issues are often a distraction from running your business. Since we also run a business, we know your time is valuable and costs must be minimized. You want legal matters handled quickly and cost-effectively. We pride ourselves on being accessible and responsive when you call. With several qualified business attorneys, we can give you guidance and counsel even if your primary attorney is out at court or a meeting.

Our business clients range from start-ups to international companies and family businesses we have served for decades, through several generations. Our clients are in every business sector including real estate, construction, agriculture, manufacturing, publishing, insurance, finance, arts, entertainment, technology, restaurants, retail, wholesale, internet, and the professions including architecture, engineering, and health care. Although many people don’t fully appreciate it, non-profits are also businesses and we represents dozens of them as well.

While we are always cost-conscious, we also know from long experience that is cheaper and easier to stay out of trouble then to get out of trouble. We believe that thoughtful planning and good contracts are an investment that pays off very well over time. As members of your team, committed to your success, we will identify issues when we see them and suggest ways to minimize risk or maximize benefits.
