Avoiding Liability, Protecting Your Interests, Handling Legal Problems When They Arise

Your incorporation documents are extremely important when starting a business. Too often, friends or family members implicitly trust each other with important money and control matters, only to be involved in a dispute or lawsuit later when problems arise. Many such problems can be avoided by proper planning. At Federer & Federer, P.C., we carefully review and explain your options when setting up your business to ensure its smooth operation. Should difficulties arise, in addition to handling litigation, we offer representation in the mediation and arbitration of business disputes.
