We are dedicated to getting the deal done. Our team advises on the business and tax law issues that permeate all facets of a commercial transaction. Our lawyers serve as local and general counsel not only to sole proprietors and closely held entities but also to publicly traded national and global corporations doing business in Nevada and far beyond state lines.

We are actively involved in all types of mergers, acquisitions, dispositions and dissolutions that are subject to Nevada corporate law, limited liability company law, and partnership law. We deliver comprehensive legal counsel on the complete array of business contracts, as well as on all dispute mitigation and resolution, particularly among entities and their owners.
