This experience gives Tim a unique point of view in meeting the needs of his clients. Tim says, "I see the legal issues facing a business with a business person's perspective. I've provided legal services in the purchase and sales of business from salons to commercial printers to laboratories. I've negotiated supplier contracts and been an active manager and shareholder in a small entrepreneurial venture (a successful ad agency that is now a multinational leader). I know what it's like to have P&L responsibility--to have to make my numbers." In short, Tim prides himself on being a business lawyer who understands the business of business.
Tim is available to consult with you on the legal needs of your business. He is ready to help you with buying or selling a business, business formation, incorporation, partnership agreements, general business planning and development, contracts, employment law and, if necessary,collection and bankruptcy.
Tim believes in practicing preventive law. He says, "My goal is to keep clients out of the courtroom. So many problems can be prevented by making sure things are done right before potential problems arise. Should problems occur, bring the parties to the table to negotiate solutions. This is a great way to keep legal fees and costs down." Practicing this kind of law means spending time with clients, and listening. Tim says, "Lots of lawyers think they need to talk all the time. I find that LISTENING to clients is the best way to get to the heart of a legal problem to find a solution."
