Corporate, Business & Real Estate Law

At Corday & Hartney, we work closely with a broad spectrum of business clients to help them achieve their business objectives, and prepare and execute their strategic plans. This includes planning for the start-up and formation of new ventures; helping existing companies comply with applicable laws and regulations; negotiating and drafting contracts; and handling the acquisition and sale of businesses and assets.

We also form and represent non-profit entities and help guide them through the unique issues raised by doing business in the non-profit sector. In sum, we act as general counsel to small and medium sized businesses who don’t need a full time in-house lawyer but who do need the broad range of expertise that an in-house lawyer provides.
