Commercial Litigation

At DregerLaw we recognize that in the final analysis, litigation is a last resort, attention-getting device. We understand that no business elects to pursue or remain in litigation, but that litigation may sometimes be a necessary means to achieving a successful end. We are focused on the big picture: Why our clients litigate, what effect litigation has on their business now and in the future, and how litigation can best be used as a tool for achieving their business’ objectives.

Success in achieving those objectives is dependent upon being prepared and upon having the necessary judgment, knowledge, attitude and resources. That is why at DregerLaw . . .  More –>

Business Formation

The right business structure is critical to the protection of a business’ assets and the personal assets of the business owners. Typical choices for businesses are sole proprietorship, partnerships, LLC, or corporation. But not all these choices offer you and your business the full protection that is needed.  At DregerLaw, our attorneys fully understand this concept and conduct a comprehensive evaluation of essential aspects of your business, including the ownership structure, the nature of liabilities, the tax consequences, the management structure, and the costs of formation and maintenance.
