Indianapolis Business Lawyers

Business Law Services in Indiana

The experienced attorneys in our business services group advise local, state, national and international firms with a presence in Indiana. We counsel them on financing, tax, regulatory compliance, employment, property and other legal matters, as well as handle litigation and alternative dispute resolution. We also assist clients with selecting appropriate organizational structures for business activities and the proper formation of business entities.

Our team serves as Indiana counsel for banks and financial institutions engaged in lending and other financing transactions with national and regional businesses. We review and provide legal opinions on compliance, enforceability, priority and other matters concerning business transactions.

As a smaller firm, we offer more personalized service than many larger firms. The same one or two attorneys—often partners in the firm—will follow your case from beginning to end. Any time you call in with questions, you will speak with someone who has the knowledge to help move the matter forward. This straightforward process is more cost-efficient and effective for you, and your satisfaction is our goal.



Indianapolis Business Formation Legal Services

We specialize in setting up business entities for everything from real estate investment partnerships to farm trusts to co-op entities for multinational manufacturing corporations. We help everyone from small entrepreneurs who are just starting a business to multinational companies expanding into different countries, and everyone in between. We’ve also been involved in some of the state’s largest mergers and acquisitions. Other states, such as New York, rely on our services to help their clients locally.
