Entrepreneurs and Start-ups

Entrepreneurship is not for everyone and comes with plenty of bumps along the way. We often hear the success stories and little about the failures or the many obstacles that are faced when starting a business. Elliot has created both successful and non-successful business ventures and understands the importance of finding the right people to do what needs to be done in order for a business to succeed. Elliot also understands the struggles to balance regulatory and legal compliance with other important aspects of the business when cash flow is limited in the early stages of a start-up and works with companies to find solutions that work for them.

Entrepreneurs require legal counsel regarding a wide variety of issues including business structuring, bank or equity firm financing, operating agreements or partnership agreements, and property lease agreements. These are just a few of the services provided by our firm.

Elliot represents clients with different perspectives in the entrepreneurial world including private equity groups, small start-ups with limited resources but great ideas, and owners of businesses who have been successful but looking to expand operations.
