Small Business

Proctor Brant is passionate about helping entrepreneurs and small businesses navigate the wilderness of the legal world with a minimum of disruption to their businesses and their lives. We help our clients avoid litigation whenever possible, but sometimes it is either unavoidable or the best alternative. We are trial-tested and have the experience and resolve to go the distance.

At Proctor Brant, we help small business owners with a variety of legal issues they are likely to face, from contract and insurance disputes to issues related to unfair competition, intellectual property, construction, personal injury and professional liability. We also assist clients in recovering unpaid loans, invoices, and judgments.

As small business owners ourselves, we understand the stakes can be high and that the success of our clients’ businesses may be at risk during litigation. Most of our clients have little to no experience with civil lawsuits, and litigation can be both all-consuming and anxiety-inducing. By entrusting their legal matters to us, our clients can avoid becoming overwhelmed by the day-to-day work of a lawsuit and can instead devote their time and energy to running their businesses.

We also help our clients navigate the decision-making process and prepare them for imminent transitions in their business relationships. We collaborate with clients to evaluate the potential risks and benefits of litigation and develop practical strategies to achieve their desired results before diving headlong into a lawsuit.
