From startup to complex business transactions, you can rest assured we can help.

Small business owners are often confronted with legal issues that they may not have the knowledge to adequately deal with. How does the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act impact my business? Am I properly classifying my workers as employees or independent contractors? Should I have an employee handbook? A former employee is suing for wrongful termination, what should I do? When these issues arise you need someone who knows the law and can provide you with answers that empower you to make sound decisions.

Business Law Attorney Claire Forster has worked with local small businesses and co-operatives to address their legal needs, large and small. Claire will work with you to meet your legal needs in a timely and cost effective manner.
