We’ve Got Your Back!

The launch and evolution of a small business takes tremendous grit, vision, timing, and luck to succeed. It takes even more to sustain it. Businesses need strategic planning to minimize liability, iron-clad contracts to minimize disputes, and protection of intellectual property rights and licensing agreements.

At Stephen Stern Law Firm, we specialize in helping businesses protect themselves. We represent our clients as if they were family and businesses as if they were our own. Whether it’s a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company, corporation or a non-profit organization, we have your legal back.

SSLF has more than 20 years of legal experience, licensed in California, Arizona and Federal Courts. Stephen and his team have helped countless entrepreneurs launch their dreams, and helped small family businesses strategically evolve. While each business is unique in terms of its services or goods, culture and business model, all require sound legal guidance to weather storms and maximize growth opportunities.
