Let Your Business Be Our Business

Every business needs legal advice. Yet, most businesses cannot support a full time in-house attorney. At Lanard and Associates, we provide small and mid-sized companies all the services of a General Counsel, without all the expense.

If you own or run a business, contact a transactional business lawyer at Lanard and Associates about your company's specific legal needs.  We can assist you with every aspect of starting a business and running a company, including assisting with strategic business decisions, the type of entity to form, initial contracts you need, the lease for your business, important employment policies to have in place, and all other aspects of getting your business off the ground.

It’s no surprise or coincidence to me that I am now able to put the […] legal issues 100% behind me. Thanks to your personal dedication, experience, and expertise I had been able to largely continue living my normal life despite how upsetting and distracting all of this has been for me over the past six months. I am certain that this is because of the confidence that you and your team had given me. I really value honesty, effort, experience, and timeliness which are all qualities I have had the pleasure of experiencing while working with you and your team of the last half year. The quick response time to my questions (no matter how insignificant), the honest assessment, answers and feedback, and creative solutions that allowed us to prevail really kept me at ease throughout the entire process.


I will never be able to express how privileged I feel to have you and your team in my corner. You and your team really did make a huge difference in my life and I really want you to know how thankful I am for your continued support. "
