Local family-owned businesses need a trusted legal advisor. All businesses interact with the law by leasing or purchasing real estate for their offices or facilities; entering into agreements or contracts with customers and suppliers; maintaining insurance; and eventually merging or selling their businesses. Business owners must also individually navigate financial, estate planning, and liability issues.

Journey Law’s  relationship with business owners typically starts with a comprehensive Business Legal Needs Audit to determine what services are needed. The services offered include establishing and maintaining a business entity; ensuring that adequate insurance is in place; reviewing agreements and contracts; and succession planning. To address a business’ evolving needs on an ongoing basis, the firm offers affordable fixed fee membership plans and regular flat fee options.
