How We Help Clients

How We Help Clients

Please watch this video for an overview of our services.

We serve as the outside legal team for entrepreneurs and owner-operated businesses in Maryland, DC, and throughout the DC metro area.  

The following are examples of how we help our clients:

Commercial Real Estate Law

Are you leasing or buying an office or retail space? Doing so is an incredibly exciting step in building your business. We share your enthusiasm and we will help you feel confident about taking this important step.

Corporate/Business Law 

Do you need guidance drafting or reviewing documents, or helping structure or plan for the future of the business? We treat every client as though their business was our own. We empathetically and passionately help your business throughout its lifecycle: from start-up to growth, and exit.

Employment Law

Deciding whether to classify a new hire as an employee or independent contractor? Want to make sure your employment agreements and offer letters are sound? Not sure how to let an employee go? As the entrepreneur's general counsel, we handle myriad employment-related matters, including employee handbooks and incentive plans, as well as related human resource needs.

Estate Planning & Administration

Want to make sure you protect your assets and provide for your heirs? We help you plan for what makes the most sense for your family.  We focus on what's important to you and will help you understand the options available.

Franchise Law 

Are you thinking about becoming a franchisee?  Do you need assistance reviewing a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)? For those that are new to franchising, we can serve as a legal interpreter, i.e., helping you become more familiar with the terms of the FDD and, in particular, the Franchise Agreement and for all prospective franchisees, we can help you spot issues, nuances, and peculiarities in your FDD and offer suggestions on how to manage them.

Government Contracts

Could you use assistance drafting and/or negotiating teaming agreements, subcontracts, or joint venture agreements? We proudly serve as outside counsel to government contractors, including many that participate in the set-aside programs, such as the SBA 8(a) program, WOSB, EDWOSB, SDVOSB, and more. 


Have you had an employee violate a restrictive covenant?  Do you have a client or customer that hasn't done what they are supposed to do?  Do you have a partner (member/shareholder) that did something they shouldn't have done?  We will aggressively advocate for you if the need arises.
