Starting a Business?

You’re starting your own company, and you want to get it right. Working with a small business lawyer from the beginning will help you avoid future liability, gain a better understanding of the business world from a legal perspective, and set your business up to thrive.

Legal Counsel for Small Businesses

All businesses need legal services, but it doesn’t make financial sense for most small businesses to have an in-house lawyer. That’s where we come in. We provide legal guidance to businesses throughout Washington State, in-person or virtually—whether you’re looking for ongoing counsel or have an urgent issue. We offer different billing options, including hourly and on-retainer. Learn more about our rates here.

Business Disputes

Do you have a business dispute with a partner or employee? Unlike some law firms with a litigation-first attitude, we strive to resolve legal disputes without going to court. Although filing a lawsuit is sometimes necessary, avoiding it can save you years of frustration and tens—or hundreds—of thousands of dollars. Our experienced business attorneys represent clients in all types of disputes and are prepared to go to litigation if it is truly in your best interest.

“[Josh] and his team worked lots of hours and worked through all the documents and got my [business] acquisition completed this last week. Having an attorney to advocate for your rights in a negotiation is worth its weight in gold. He made a suggestion that will save me more in tax than the cost of his service.”
