Virginia & D.C. Business Law

Business Law is All We Do

We are a business law firm. Legal advice for small and mid-sized business is our sole focus.

We are all business, all the time.

Building a business is complex. You need business lawyers who are laser-focused on the latest developments in corporate best practices, Virginia and D.C. business law, and emerging issues such as data privacy and security.

If you agree, then we're the right lawyers for your business.

We walk alongside our small and mid-sized business law clients in long-term, strategic partnership to help them realize goals by managing risks and seizing opportunities.

Sound Corporate Governance is Essential to Protecting Corporate Value

As business attorneys, we help directors and officers understand and comply with their company’s governing documents and applicable corporate law.

Our counsel on how to govern your small business or mid-sized company and, if necessary, amend your governing documents takes your business model, maturity, and goals into account.

Whether you're running an LLC, a C-Corp or S-Corp, social enterprise, a benefit corporation or B Corp (there's a difference!), we ensure your governing documents reflect your business model. As a B Corp and the first law firm to litigate a benefit proceeding, we are well-positioned to understand unique governance models.

You just got a business contract from another company. Do you know what you're signing? Can you negotiate better terms?

You need a business contract lawyer.

We will identify and categorize legal issues in a simple, clear table:
