Contracts - As they say, the devil is in the details. Let us help you with the details of your business contracts. From creation to review and execution, we know where the rubber meets the road.

Employees - Having employees is essential to a growing business but employees are human and often make mistakes that could affect you or your business.

Example: Employer A sent employee B to pick up some money. Hours after the pick up, the employee quit and the money was no where to be found. Years later when employee B was applying for a job, employer A was asked to provide a reference. Employer A was subsequently sued by employee B. Murnane & O'Neill successfully represented Employer A in the suit.

Disputes Among Business Partners - Businesses often start out with a great flurry of optimism and hope. Unfortunately, not all ventures are successful. Often times the business partners find that they have many differences of opinion and many issues arise such as non-compete agreements and splitting of profits. Murnane & O'Neill has successfully represented partners who were interested in winding down their business and wanted to keep their partners from taking clients and competing with them.
