Business Advising

Business Advisory Services

Every time we meet with a new client (and existing client for that matter), the approach is the same. We actively listen to what our clients are saying. If we want to understand what brought you to our offices, we need to do more than just hear what you are saying, we need to understand the motivations behind what you saying. This is why we never charge for the initial meeting. It is important that you feel comfortable while you learn about us; while you decide whether you want to work with us - to retain our firm. There is no way we can provide business advisory services to the level that meets our standards if you are not comfortable and are constantly checking your watch.

Working With Our Clients

What sets our advisory services apart from other firms? It is a common question and one you should not be afraid to ask. The answer is simple. We do not work for our client. The attorneys at this firm work with our client. We are committed to provide personalized attention to each individual or business we represent. We will work with you to understand your business as it stands today and where you want to be tomorrow. We endeavor to respond to your questions for guidance and also highlight both business dangers and opportunities that may be hidden that you need to be aware of. Working with our clients also means that work will be delivered in a timely manner that works for your schedule and not ours. Phone calls are returned promptly.

Client Reviews
Adam has been my corporate attorney for over 10 years. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He efficiently moves through the judicial system and always keeps the best interest of his client in the foreground. Janet
We hired Adam to represent us for a patent dispute. He was excellent from the very beginning. He was thorough, detailed, honest, forthright, succinct, and available to us for questions at all times. Needless to say he achieved the best outcome we could have hoped for, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I only wish I could have given him a check mark on all of the attributes listed on LinkedIn, but it would only allow 3. Matt
I just recently sold my company and the firm of Danziger Shapiro held up the legal end of the transaction. Adam Shapiro left no rock unturned to protect my interests. The closing did not proceed as smoothly as we had hoped, but Adam was supportive through the entire process. They have been my legal advisors for my company for many years and I have the utmost faith in them. They always keep the clients best interest at heart. J.H.
