  • Franchise law – Whether you will be offering franchising opportunities to other businesses or operating as a franchisee, we can review the franchise disclosure documentation and negotiate a franchise agreement that will provide you with the protection you need.¬†
  • Business disputes – We can work with you to resolve internal disagreements between partners, officers, or employees, and if necessary, we can help you complete a “business divorce,” including determining the best way to handle a buyout of the shares of a partner who is leaving the company. We can also help you resolve external disputes with other businesses or individuals, including providing representation in business litigation and obtaining any restraining orders or injunctions necessary to protect your business.

Coaching for Women Business Owners

In addition to helping address the legal and financial aspects of owning and operating a business, we take into account the practical aspects of doing business. Our business advice is not limited to legal considerations, but it also includes practical real-world considerations. Sometimes, clients ask us to structure certain transactions which may be legally sound, but are not practically sound, which may still lead to litigation. Danya Shakfeh’s experience as a business owner has given her an understanding of the concerns that many people face in these situations. With her help, you can operate your business sucessfully and work toward achieving your goals. Specifically, Attorney Danya Shakfeh enjoys coaching fellow women business owners to help them thrive in their industries.
