Practice Areas

Business Law

Kennedy Doyle provides a wide range of business law services to our clients. Our goal is to help your company grow and continue to succeed. We represent companies across many industries. We provide legal services to many entrepreneurs and start-up businesses. New and early stage companies have different needs than our larger, established clients.

In conjunction with our business law practice, Kennedy Doyle serves the role of "outside general counsel" for a number of businesses who do not have their own legal staff. This entails a hands-on approach, with constant contact with the company’s management.

Further, we secure the hiring of law firms that a business may need for a specific transaction that we do not handle ourselves. For instance, if a business we represent is involved in securities or labor litigation, we will assist in retaining a firm in the area that specializes in such areas.

We understand client concerns over legal fees, so we offer a variety of alternative fee arrangements for business clients and entrepreneurs, including deferred payment and monthly retainers.
