Small business law

If you own or manage a small business you have legal needs often unlike those of large companies.  For example, an overlooked or misunderstood contract provision could result in adverse litigation that could jeopardize future business operations.  Or a disgruntled partner could take all your clients away if your partnership agreement does not protect you.  Furthermore, compliance with state and federal regulations and statutes may apply differently to your small business than to corporations.  Longsworth Law LLC knows small business law and will protect your business interests.

Corporate law
