Private Business

Getting a new business off the ground, growing it or preparing it to pass on to others requires careful planning to ensure success. At BW, our highly skilled business transactions attorneys guide clients in making decisions that affect your business today and down the road.

Most small and mid-sized businesses cannot afford to have their own in-house legal counsel, much less a dedicated legal department like larger corporations. Yet small and medium-sized businesses must nevertheless deal with many of the same legal issues as large corporations. Businesses of any size must deal with employment, tax, real estate, legal compliance and a host of other legal issues. As outside general counsel, BW provides a level of advice and assistance to keep companies in compliance with state and federal laws and regulations while guiding them through commercial transactions and seeing to their corporate governance needs.

Client Testimonials

“It has been my pleasure to work with Aaron Ball since I joined Energistics in 2008. As Outside General Counsel, Aaron has served our company with honor and distinction, always there for our Directors and staff with timely, considered, erudite counsel. Perhaps as important, Aaron’s compassion and kindness has seen us through challenging times. He was one of the first people I called upon as Acting CEO in 2015 when our CEO passed away unexpectedly and he helped us through a difficult transition period. I would recommend Aaron to anyone looking for a smart attorney with a good heart. Aaron would be an asset to any company.”
