How We Can Help

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.
