BUSINESS AND CORPORATIONS

Pacific Apex has practical, business-minded attorneys ready to assist clients whether they are forming a new venture, expanding, honing their business practices or deciding how to divest of their business. Our attorneys assist companies, management, and employees in assessing risks present in the modern economy. We serve a wide range of business clients from sole proprietors, small business owners, and other entrepreneurs to closely held corporations. We enjoy startup counseling just as much as advising on employment disputes or reviewing commercial lease agreements for our clients. We will meet you where you are at in the process. Our goal is to protect the legal and business interests of our clients while providing prompt, actionable advice to enable our clients to make timely business decisions. By taking the time to understand our client’s business goals, we help identify and mitigate potential risks before legal issues may develop.

Pacific Apex As Your General Counsel

Due to the large range of business law services necessary for business operation, Pacific Apex often provides general business counsel services for businesses that are too small to have in-house counsel. Many startups, smaller businesses, and other clients retain us to act as their “general counsel,” “outside counsel” or “outsourced in-house counsel.” This arrangement has three principal benefits:


  • We develop an in-depth familiarity with our client’s business, culture and legal needs;

  • We maintain a long-term relationship, which facilitates efficiency of service; and

  • We become an integral part of our client’s management team. 


Pacific Apex supports micro and small business ownership, as well as sustainable and responsible business growth. We believe in entrepreneurs, forward-thinking business professionals, and other creatives. For businesses  located in Colorado, Florida, or additional states we serve, it would be our pleasure to assist you.
