Your business now has loyal customers and an established place in the market. Our business and employment lawyers are dedicated advocates to protect your company from IP and trade secrets infringements, breaches of contract, and employment law disputes.


Sales and profits are stable and competition is fierce. When the need arises, our business and employment litigation lawyers will fight aggressively for your interests, whether in mediation, arbitration, or trial.


Customers and revenues are increasing in the growth phase, and new issues, along with new opportunities, are arising. Our dedicated team can help you put legal protections in place to prevent problems from arising in this phase and in future.


This stage represents a period of growth into new distribution channels and markets. Mergers and acquisitions are common in the expansion stage, and our experienced transactional lawyers can provide outstanding representation every step of the way.
