Legal Services

Our dedicated legal professionals are well-versed in many areas of that law that affect small businesses. We give you solid legal advice where you need it, when you need it.  Our focus is on doing things right, right now.  We don’t engage in litigation and we don’t specialize in tax law–those are tricky, complicated areas of the law where a specialist is required (but we can refer you to some excellent accountants, tax lawyers or litigators if that’s what you need).

To keep your assets protected and keep your business compliant (and attractive to lenders and potential investors or buyers), we help you with your corporate governance, contracts (from negotiations to drafting to review), employee issues, marketing concerns, intellectual property protection (or pre-litigation defense) and a host of other legal issues small businesses face every day.

We offer three service levels to fit your particular needs…or we can customize a plan just for you.  And once you’re our client, we guarantee our responsiveness by promising to pay you $100 every time we fail to return calls or emails within one business day!  If you are interested in learning more, please send us a message through the “contact us” page and we’ll contact you right away, or send an email directly to info@counselright.com.
