My philosophy is to practice preventative law. Taking the time now to invest in preventative measures will protect your business and avoid costly time consuming litigation. If you are facing business decisions, the legal support you retain to represent you can impact the future of your business and your bottom line.

I understand how difficult it can be to find help with legal and small business issues. Whether you are starting a business or are already running a business, I can help you with virtually all of the legal issues you and your business will face throughout the life of your business – from the beginning when you need to form your corporation or limited liability company (LLC), to contract drafting, to trademark searches and registrations, to hiring employees, to buying a business, to entering into commercial leases, and finally to developing a comprehensive exit strategy and plan that allows you to realize the full value of your business. Philadelphia small business lawyer Stuart A.
