What We Do For Businesses

Legal Protection so you can focus on Profit.

It is rough out there. We know it. We have witnessed it firsthand. Whether it is a business that failed when an officer became suddenly incapacitated–or a company sued by a group of employees alleging unfair working conditions.–we have seen it all. Had they talked to us first, we might have prevented these crippling events from occurring.

Running a business today can be especially difficult given the myriad of laws with which a company must comply — in addition to dealing with competition, employee issues and changing customer needs. As a result, we have created the HRMM&L Business Advisory Group, made up of some of our top business, tax, employment and trusts and estates lawyers– lawyers who have extensive experience helping businesses with important legal issues such as:

  • Corporate structure and management
  • Succession Planning
  • Compliance with federal and state employment laws
  • Business sales and acquisitions
  • Asset protection
  • Real estate purchases and leases and,
  • Environmental compliance.

Our team’s goal is to insure that you stay focused on increasing revenues–while we make sure that to the best of our abilities, your business is protected from litigation and unforeseen problems and loss. We want you to be protected and properly advised at all times.

One of the chief services of HRMM&L’s Business Advisory Group is the conduct of a “legal check-up” or audit of your company’s compliance with applicable business and employment laws. We will review your customer contracts, your employee handbooks and your corporate structure to see if there are any obvious areas of possible exposure. Based on the audit, we will meet with you and propose ameliorative steps to protect your business and make it stronger going forward.

Please take advantage of many resources on our website. They include:

We want to be your trusted advisors and counselors and provide you with all the legal resources you will need to succeed –now and in the future. Please feel free to contact a member of our Business Advisory Group to set up an audit or discuss any concerns you may have. Just call 215-661-0400 or email Lawyers@HRMML.com.
