FAQ: What is Your Area of Business Law Practice?

Our work at The Law Studio spans several areas of Business Law, from arbitrating investor and employment disputes for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA“) to coaching business partners to reach agreement regarding ownership and authority. Additionally, we mediate commercial and employment disputes, and we negotiate workers’ compensation (“WC”) penalties with New York State, when employers unintentionally misclassify their workers and fail to secure the mandatory WC insurance. Nance is a former human resources/employee relations supervisor and minor league hockey agent, so she is always looking for ways to create “wins” for as many people as possible in any process. She finds that arbitration, coaching, negotiation, and mediation offer the most likely routes to such wins, whether in business or in life generally.

NOTE: This post is a general overview of the types of work we do in what some people might consider Business Law.  It might also be considered attorney advertising, and we cannot guarantee any particular result if you choose to work with us. Past success is never a guarantee of a future outcome. If you require information or advice applied to your unique situation, please make an appointment to discuss it with an attorney. Don’t rely solely on what you read on the Internet.
