Business Law

I want to help your business thrive. So many areas of law touch upon an owner’s operation of their business. I know because I have managed and owned two of my own businesses and am married to a business owner!

My Focus

I love working with businesses to figure out how to minimize risk. Whether that risk comes from contracts, insurance, employees, partner disputes, consumer claims, formation, dissolution, acquisitions and many more, I have your back covered.

One of my many passions is teaching the next generation of entrepreneurs. As a Business Law and Ethics Professor at Western Washington University and Bellingham Technical College, I hope to foster that same passion in my students. One of my main goals is to teach how to protect your business from legal liability so it can grow. I regularly counsel businesses on how to avoid such litigation. But when a claim does arise, I know how to fight for you. I practice in the following areas:

  • Servicing Partnerships, Limited Liability Companies, Corporations, Non-Profits, and Many More
  • Formation and Dissolution
  • Company Acquisitions
  • Venture Capital Investment Agreements
  • Contract Breaches and Drafting
  • Partner Disputes
  • Corporate Governance and Fiduciary Duty Claims
  • Business Insurance Claims
  • Consumer Claims
  • Vehicle Sales, Repair, and Fraud Claims
  • Landlord-Tenant Disputes

Let's Talk Business

Unlike many law firms, I provide legal services from start to finish for most business needs. You are busy and have a business to run. You don’t always have to handle the legal requirements of running a business. I want to take as much of that burden off your shoulders, so you can focus on growing a successful company.
