Legal Counsel For Small and Mid-Sized Businesses
Most small to mid-sized businesses find that it is not cost-effective to
employ a full-time in-house attorney to handle the day-to-day legal matters
that arise. In addition, hiring a business law attorney when the need arises can leave most business owners feeling as if they are scrambling for legal advice. Rosenblum Law Offices offers a solution to both of these scenarios.

services by handling ongoing general corporate legal matters and coordinating
as needed with the client’s other legal specialists, tax advisors, accountants
and internal departments. Outsourcing your business' legal needs to a law firm with a team of experts in a wide range of business law experience makes good business sense.
