Connecticut Contract and Business Attorneys Guiding Clients

Our attorneys have been advising individuals and businesses, both large and small, on business and contract matters for more than 30 years, and have drafted and reviewed the various business documents effectuating those arrangements.

Our business clients rely on our guidance and advice to create, sustain and grow their businesses and achieve their business objectives. From our offices in Hartford, and Stamford, our business law attorneys at Rome McGuigan advise on the full range of business issues for clients throughout Connecticut. We are also adept at counseling national and multinational businesses on legal issues across the globe.

Our experience ranges from forming the proper legal entity, to merging and contracting with other businesses. Whether advising on contracts for the closely held business around the corner or the multinational corporation doing business overseas, we recognize the need to understand the business and its objectives and to know the applicable laws in order to achieve those objectives.

We have significant experience in complex business matters, and are able to bring the appropriate commercial, financial, investigation and litigation experience required for the task. We work hard to anticipate and avoid problems, and have helped to shield many clients from needless and crippling business litigation.
