Small Business/Mergers and Acquisitions

The Law Offices of Richard S. Sternberg is prepared to assist you with every legal aspect of starting, running, and divesting of a small business.

We’ve helped clients through many of the difficulties of running a small business, including landlord issues, collections problems, disputed accounts payable issues, leasing disputes, and employee issues. We’ve watched some of our clients suffer the risks of entrepreneurial ventures, and we’ve helped some make it to the Inc. 50, to major international growth, and to very successful early retirements.
