From the firm’s inception, we have provided solution-oriented and efficient general corporate counseling, advice and services to a substantial number of business entities, large and small, both publicly traded and privately held. Our ability to provide our clients with advice on a wide range of business law issues is reflected in being the only firm named by Chambers USA 2018 to its top tier, “Band 1”, for Corporate/M&A law firms in Connecticut.

Depending on the requirements and preferences of the client, we can collaborate with clients to develop a cost effective “out-sourced” general counsel arrangement.
