Business Formation

Beginning a commercial venture requires you to wade through a bog of legal work. Depending on the nature of your business you might need to:


Find a location:

We have business connections with location scouts that will help you find the ideal spot for your new business.


Negotiate a lease:

Most businesses require commercial real-estate. Our business attorneys will

help you negotiate with a landlord to obtain the best terms on the lease for

your business.


Design according to ADA standard:

Stringent laws protect the rights of disabled employees and citizens. We will ensure that your business complies with ADA’s standards and defend you in ADA-related proceedings.


Obtain permits and licenses:

Liquor licenses, business certificates, Certificate of Assembly, sidewalk café…we can help you obtain the documents that you need to operate a business.

Secure Employee Visas:
A major area of our practice focuses on business immigration. We can help your business to secure employment-based visas.




As a boutique law firm, JLG not only helps you to become a legal business entity, we will personally guide you through each  step of formation to ensure the long-term growth of your business. We have helped new business owners  to begin successful ventures. Julia, the CEO and Owner of Hao Noodles and Tea, writes:
