Counsel to Private Clubs, Trade Associations,
and Small Businesses

Experience. Knowledge. Integrity.


Our distinctive focus ensures quality responsiveness and efficiency advantages to our clients, while avoiding the management problems associated with excessive staffing. Large staffing may also result in clients funding the training of young lawyers. We encourage clients to use experienced in-house or local counsel to assist on projects not requiring our expertise, to eliminate costly “learning curves” and to telescope closing dates. Having in excess of 40 years of experience representing businesses, nonprofit entities, and real estate clients, we have garnered a reputation for offering careful documentation and effective results.
