Employment and Business Law

All businesses, from small, closely-held businesses to nonprofits and major corporations, have employment, tax and business law concerns. Relatively few businesses, though, have in-house counsel for the inevitable legal needs that arise.

We represent Michigan businesses ranging from sole proprietorships to large corporations. We view our role as partners in our clients' success at all stages of their business's life cycle, from entity selection and formation through dissolution, sale, or succession planning. By developing long-term working relationships with our business clients, we are able to understand their goals, and anticipate problems, and prevent conflicts before they arise.
