Practice Areas


From the moment an entrepreneur decides to turn an idea into reality until the day of the successful IPO decisions are made that have enduring legal consequences. Most new business owners understand that legal counsel is advisable in deciding how and where to organize the business structure. Not so many recognize the critical role an attorney can play in ongoing operations: structuring shareholder rights and responsibilities; recognizing when and how to obtain intellectual property protection; negotiating beneficial partnership and alliance relationships; identifying potential liabilities and hedging against them; managing employee benefits; and instituting dispute resolution procedures are but a few of the issues most businesses could better address with the right counsel.

Sperduto Thompson has the skills and experience to help small businesses successfully grow. We have the breadth and depth of expertise necessary to counsel on the many decisions business owners must make, but we also provide the truly personal touch that only a small firm can offer.

Sperduto Thompson has assisted small business owners in corporate organizations and restructurings, contract negotiations, real estate acquisitions, intellectual property matters, employee relations, and with a host of other business issues. Mr. Rauch served as general counsel for Practical Solutions Corporation, experts in software process automation, from 2001-2003. The Firm has also represented small businesses in litigation matters ranging from breach of contract to allegations of sexual harassment and disability discrimination.

With its experience in counseling small business owners, Sperduto Thompson is sensitive to the cost pressures they face. The firm’s rates are competitive, and we are willing to structure payment arrangements in a manner consistent with small business cash flows.
