Business Law

Today’s business environment is a complex web of regulatory, financial, human resources, and contractual snares waiting to trip up unsuspecting business people.  The legal challenges facing businesses and their owners and managers change and grow more complex as their enterprise goes from an energetic start-up to a mature, established organization.  Owners and managers must anticipate and plan for such change just as they should plan for transitions and exit strategies.

The creative and diligent legal professionals at the Hanson Law Group provide guidance and support throughout the life cycle of a business and at all stages of the career path of business people.  From appropriate founding documents, agreements between business founders, tax planning, employee handbooks and contracts, lease agreements and trade contracts with vendors and customers, our professionals provide complete business counsel to organizations both large and small.
