The Business Law Firm You Need

Your business is founded on your expertise and that of your team. Your expertise in management or manufacturing or gourmet cooking however, won’t help you build a strong legal entity that will support your operations and protect your rights. For that, you look to professionals who are as passionate about business law and commercial litigation as you are about your business. Joseph Gentleman is dedicated to providing the innovative solutions and aggressive representation you need to protect, maintain and grow your business.

Business Formation

The first step toward building a business is among the most complex. Would your business operate best as a sole proprietorship, a partnership, a limited liability company or a corporation? If you have reason to incorporate, which type of corporation is the best fit for your organization? Attorney Joseph Gentleman can help you answer those questions and then provide the legal knowledge and experience necessary to create the appropriate entity.

Operating Your Business

Legal considerations and documents are a part of the regular operations of most businesses. Whether you need a non-disclosure or non-compete agreement for new employees, need a contract drafted or reviewed as you establish relationships with clients, vendors, or sub-contractors, or need to enforce the terms of a contract, a seasoned business lawyer can be your greatest ally.

Commercial Litigation

No matter how well-prepared you are and how dutifully you fulfill your business obligations, disputes arise. Whether you’re defending against claims made by a third party or you must resort to litigation to assert your rights, the right lawyer by your side can ease the burden on your business and give you the best chance for a favorable resolution.

Legal Malpractice

You rely on your attorney to pursue claims on your behalf or perform legal services adequately but when that lawyer makes a mistake or simply fails to act on your behalf, it can be costly in more ways than one. It can be difficult to find an attorney who will truly fight for the relief you deserve against your attorney so it is important to find an attorney who has experience pursuing legal malpractice cases against your attorney. Joseph Gentleman has over 20 years suing all types of attorneys for legal malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty and other claims and he is considered a Super Lawyer in the area and has been rated preeminent AV by Martindale Hubble. You must act fact because you only have 2 years from the time the attorney made the mistake to file a lawsuit against an attorney so if you think your attorney made a mistake or you did not obtain the result you thought you would obtain, please do not delay and contact an attorney immediately.
