Protecting Your Business Interests

At StachlerHarmon, in Dayton, we help Ohio businesses get into business, and stay in business.

Our team of legal advisers has decades of combined legal experience in representing small and medium-sized, closely held companies. Our business clients have included tool and die companies, construction contractors, restaurant franchises, as well as lawyers, doctors and other professionals. We routinely act as general counsel for businesses. Simply put, closely held small and medium-sized businesses hire us to serve as "outside but in-house" general counsel, when it is not feasible to have an in-house attorney.

If you are thinking of forming a business or need legal advice to help your business grow and thrive, our attorneys can help you get started and conduct your business successfully within the confines of the law.

Our attorneys are also skilled litigators and negotiators who can assist in resolving any disputes concerning business partners, customers, employees, government entities or other points of contact.

Although the lawyers at StachlerHarmon stand ready to aggressively pursue our clients' interests in court, we understand that litigation is sometimes expensive and are willing to pursue extrajudicial dispute resolutions, both court-ordered and by party consent. In most instances, we can resolve business legal matters out of court, in the context of a negotiation or mediation with the assistance of our lawyers. Our goal is to provide cost-effective and satisfying resolutions.
