Paul C. Ray, Chtd. advises all types of businesses, including investor groups, foreign and domestic corporations, for-profit and not-for-profit companies, small business start-ups, and small businesses and entrepreneurs. Businesses need awareness of myriad legal issues, and the firm ensures that its clients are well-informed.


Even the development, running, or resolution of a business implicates several regulations and laws; but handling all of these phases in a business lifespan is within the firms range of capabilities: including strategic alliance agreements like joint ventures and partnerships, shareholder agreements, financings, closings, operating agreements, negotiation and preparation of deal term sheets, and the collection and enforcement of contractual dispute obligations.

Without guidance, a business could find itself less property, less value, less profit resultant from unconstitutional action undertaken by government. The firm zealously defends a business constitutional rights.
