The Law Office of Thomas McDermott has extensive knowledge of the laws that revolve around running a business — from general business law to commercial litigation and debt collection.

General business law includes the formation and upkeep of a business. When you start a new company, you must create new contracts for both in-house employees and partners (i.e. suppliers). You'll also need to legally identify whether you own an incorporation, sole proprietorship, LLC, or other enterprises.

The laws surrounding the operations of your business are constantly evolving. Business law attorney Thomas McDermott can serve as your in-house counsel to make sure your business is running lawfully, allowing you to focus on more important matters like growing and sustaining the success of your business.

Having a trusted attorney ready to represent your company at any given moment, will save a lot of time and stress when problems like these arise.
