Our firm focuses on Business Law. Conveniently located in Saint Louis, Missouri, we serve national and local clients in the Bi-State area where the demand for our professional skills and expertise span dozens of local counties in Missouri and Illinois.

We recognize that we have a responsibility to help clients solve their legal problems favorably, promptly, and economically. We believe that a practical, common sense and cost-effective approach to client problems and objectives is the best practice, and are assertive, strategic and effective advocates with a reputation for credibility earned by many appearances before state and federal judges, arbitrators and mediators.
CORPORATE FORMATION, RESTRUCTURING AND BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS
Corporate structuring and business agreements often involve complex legal issues and significant business and tax implications. We help our clients navigate the legal issues involved in transactions of all kinds and sizes from relatively straight-forward loans and leases to multimillion dollar acquisitions and sales. We advise and assist clients in a wide range of business-related transactions, providing seasoned and experienced counseling, assisting with the negotiation of terms, and drafting the appropriate contracts and documents. Every detail is done in a timely manner and in the most cost-effective fashion available.
REAL ESTATE LAW

Our firm has helped landowners, developers, builders, investors, tenants, lenders and private homeowners achieve their real estate objectives through sound and experienced counseling.
We have extensive experience in representing lending institutions in dealing with all phases of distressed commercial real estate loans, from portfolio analysis to REO disposition. The firm has represented banks, insurance companies and other institutional lenders, and worked on all property types from single-family suburban land developments to downtown office buildings. We have represented numerous institutional creditors in negotiated restructurings, bankruptcies, foreclosures, receiverships of distressed investments, and REO disposition.
