Business Law

Each year, state and federal legislatures enact additional law and regulations governing the conducting of business in California and across the countty. And each year, business transactions, business formation and the creation and enforcement of business contracts become more difficult and involve more risk.

Our office provides legal counsel and transactional legal services to small- and medium-size businesses, contractors and subcontractors throughout Butte County. We work with dozens of businesses on an ongoing basis on a broad range of business law areas and situations.
