Additionally, we advise clients regarding matters including buy-sell agreements, tax matters, and business registration requirements.


We prepare, negotiate, and review all types of business contracts and agreements. We work with our clients to help explain contracts, negotiate contract terms, and make needed revisions or amendments to agreements. We prepare and review purchase or sale contracts, service agreements, vendor agreements, operating agreements, real estate lease agreements, equipment lease agreements, employment contracts, bank and lending documents, partnership or joint venture agreements, and all other types of business contracts.

Start-Up Advising

Starting a new business can be an overwhelming process. Most law firms focus only on legal matters and ignore the other important aspects a starting a business, such as marketing, development, capital investment, and business planning. At Thomas SanFilippo & Associates, our business background offers a unique perspective for our business clients that is not found at other firms.


Our courtroom experience and litigation expertise are invaluable to businesses. We represent clients in all phases of litigation, ranging from initial dispute resolution to trial. We understand the time and financial constraints of small to mid-sized businesses and work closely with clients to develop litigation strategies that meet both their budgets and their expectations.
