An experienced business attorney from our firm can provide you with legal assistance in:

  • Business formation and corporate maintenance.  Our knowledgeable Naperville business law attorneys will handle all aspects of business formation and required maintenance for any size and type of business.
  • Contracts.  Contracts are one of the most significant areas of legal concern for many business owners.  Skillfully crafting and negotiating contracts which protect your business is paramount in keeping your business successful.
  • Business transactions.  From business formations and acquisitions to employee disputes, our business attorneys can provide astute legal assistance to protect your rights and grow your business.
  • Homeowner Association and Common Interest Community Association Disputes.  Our attorneys’ practices include representing homeowner associations, condominium associations, townhome associations, master associations, and common interest community associations, in disputes over financial responsibility for maintenance/repairs of common areas, violations of open meetings laws, unfulfilled board or homeowner obligations, disputes with management companies or former boards, etc.

  • Estate planning, wills, and trusts Planning ahead to protect your assets and provide for heirs is always prudent – particularly when it involves business assets in addition to your personal property.
