Existing Businesses and General Counsel Services
If you're a new business looking to start-up or an existing business, how nice is it to say to a vender or customer "I'll have my lawyer take a look at it." When you are faced with a contract that you just had handed to you or a letter from the government telling you that you need to take action, most people know they should have a lawyer review it for them, but they don't have one or fear that it would be too expensive.
Charlton Law represents businesses by providing them with general counsel services. We understand that running a small or medium sized business does NOT lend itself to having an attorney on staff. Also, you can't have the luxury of an attorney reviewing your issues at some huge and outrageous hourly rate. We understand this because we are a small business ourselves. We understand the daily travails of running and managing your business. That is why we offer our General Counsel Package to clients. We offer this package at a reduced hourly rate with negotiable rates for other services that do not fall under the package (such as litigation).
If you own a business, chances are that at some point you will be involved in litigation. It is part of doing business in today's world. Charlton Law represents clients in the following matters:
- Contract issues and disputes
- Partnership disputes
- Shareholder disputes
- Contractor defense
We have experience in litigating complex business matters and disputes from negotiations/settlement through jury trials. All of which requires attention to detail and an in-depth knowledge of the client's business.
