Counsel to Private Clubs, Trade Associations,
and Small Businesses

Experience Knowledge Focus

Our extensive experience, specialized knowledge and distinctive focus ensures prompt attention to client needs. We  avoid the unnecessary duplication of effort and billing associated with more than one attorney working on a client file. We encourage clients to use in-house or local counsel to assist on projects not requiring our expertise, to eliminate costly “learning curves” and to telescope closing dates. Having an abundance of experience representing private clubs, trade associations and small businesses, we have achieved a reputation for offering careful documentation and desired  results.
