I enjoy guiding my clients, helping them with legal and business decisions, fostering relationships in our local business community, and so much more. I love what I do.
Choosing the proper form is the critical first step in a successful enterprise. I assist with the formation of all types of businesses and startups, including C and S corporations, sole proprietorships, limited liability companies, partnerships and more.
As a business develops and expands, the need for trusted legal advice becomes even more apparent. I will work collaboratively with you to ensure that your company is protected and that you are complying with your legal obligations pursuant to contracts, regulations and the law.
To start, grow or expand, businesses often require capital investments. As a skilled business law attorney, I can help your business obtain and negotiate the terms of the necessary financing.
The purchase or sale of a business can be a highly complex matter, requiring diligence and coordination between owners, investors and attorneys. I will work with you to ensure your transaction is completed in an efficient and timely manner.
Many businesses require regular advice and consultation with a skilled business law attorney, yet they may lack the funds to hire a full-time in-house attorney. The solution is to engage an experienced attorney who can offer legal representation as necessary to help your business grow.
As a sole practitioner, I am able to provide personalized, one-on-one service to help shepherd your business through any legal issues that may arise. I will work collaboratively with your company and its executives to help steer the business toward success, keeping your best interests at the forefront of my mind.
Gretchen is an outstanding business law attorney. She has seen our company through rigors of being publicly owned and several acquisitions. We were purchased by a multi-national company with a troop of lawyers on their side. She single-handedly went toe-to-toe with their attorneys and helped us negotiate a good deal for our shareholders. We have since acquired a few other businesses and her help with that process was invaluable. I have worked with Gretchen for 15 years and would highly recommend her.
I take great care when working with your clients. Know they are in good hands.
