Why a Business Entity Matters

Any construction professional or business owner with a few miles on their hard hat will be familiar with a business entity, but recognizing the significance of a business entity is not necessarily something that comes with time spent on the job site. Business entities function as a person independent of the business owner(s) and protect […]

Yours, Mine, and Ours: Tips for Construction Mergers and Acquisitions

With the rise in divorce rates in America, there has also been an uptick in films which focus on “blended” families. Blended saw Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore (reluctantly) merge their two families, as did the far more raunchy Step Brothers.

When dealing with legal issues as a general contractor it is so important to work with someone that understands what you do. We have been looking for a partner not only to help us deal with certain legal issues but also to help us from ever getting in to those situation again and I believe that we have found that partner with Bill and his team.

It's not very often that you can find an attorney who understands the inner workings of a business as well as Bill does. Before he became a lawyer, he was an entrepreneur who started, built, and operated businesses that served the construction industry. Bill has first hand experience with all of the moving parts of a construction business from strategy to cash flow. The issues we all deal with on a daily basis. With his experience and background he quickly understands your business needs and how to meet those needs from a legal perspective. Unfortunately, most people wait until they get in trouble before they call an attorney. Bill provides the seasoned counsel that you need to stay out of trouble in the first place. Bill is a trusted business partner who will very quickly become a friend that you can also trust for your personal legal planning.

I have finally found an attorney that I feel is on my side. Being self-employed with employees presents unique situations almost daily. Bill’s long term business background and business understanding is a benefit not too many attorneys can provide. He has helped me with different issues that are not always legal. I was stalled on a project for over 2 years. Bill not only gave me new insight on how to approach the project but got me motivated to continue. I’ve dealt with many in the legal community over the years but none have given me advice like Bill has.
