We represent small, mid-sized and large businesses, including franchises and Fortune 500 companies. Our business and commercial law clients come from Missouri and throughout the country. A full-service business law firm, we handle:
• Commercial leasing
• Creditor representation (including collections)
• International transactions
• Mergers and acquisitions (buy/sell agreements)
• Business succession planning
• Directors and officers liability
• Predicting and avoiding problems specific to your industry
We stay abreast of changes in our clients’ industries. That way, we can look to the horizon and head off potential legal threats before they become problems. Because of our firm’s longevity, our Springfield, Missouri lawyers are already familiar with many industries. We provide cost-effective resolutions for business law disputes. If you have a dispute, there are two ways to solve it: one cooperative, one adversarial.
In situations where appropriate, we attempt alternative dispute resolution and negotiated dispute resolution. This includes bankruptcy work-outs. Alternative Dispute Resolution can be used as a means of resolving disputes in a more timely and cost-effective manner as opposed to relying directly on our courts. It saves our clients’ time and money. If we can’t negotiate a low-conflict agreement, then our Springfield litigation group can effectively represent you in Missouri and any state or federal court.
