Albany Business Lawyers

At the Montgomery Law Firm, we provide a broad range of legal services to businesses and their owners, but our focus is helping businesses start right. The legal requirements for a startup are complex and confusing. Mistakes are costly and can be devastating.

We know startups. We have businesses ourselves. We’ve formed and structured hundreds of businesses for our clients. We have long term relationships. Our Albany business attorneys continue to represent companies we formed over 30 years ago.

Our office is in downtown Albany. Our practice is concentrated in the Capital District of New York, our home. We value face to face contact with our clients, most are from the Capital District, but with today’s technology we can effectively represent businesses throughout the US.

We understand. Resources, especially money, are precious, particularly for startups. We’ve structured our firm to provide excellent service in a cost effective manner. We can provide services on a fixed fee basis, and consider non-traditional fee structures.

  • Free Initial Consultation: Come in. We'll talk. We love hearing about new businesses. There is no charge for the initial consultation.
  • Fixed Fee Review: The organizational documents for your business are already done?  Great!  We will review and provide a report for a fixed fee of $300. We will make sure everything is correct.

There are many points in a business’s journey where a good lawyer is critical. Starting is the foundation. If not built right, everything else is difficult. As the business progresses, there are other points, where mistakes are trouble including,

  • obtaining angel venture capital financing,
  • borrowing funds
  • issuing securities
  • entering joint venture and other agreements with strategic partners,
  • building a compensation structure,
  • adopting an employee stock option plan,
  • licensing software or other technology,
  • building a great customer contract,
  • handling disputes with shareholders, employees, customers, vendors and strategic partners,
  • acquiring a company,
  • merging with a company and
  • selling the business.

At all these points a business must have a good lawyer. We’ve helped our clients successfully navigate each point. We can help you too.

Our strength is our understanding of business. Business demands results. We do not embroil our clients in meaningless disputes to prove a theoretical point. Lawyers’ egos and emotions have no place in obtaining good results. Our focus is on results – on service.

As a business progresses, the owners need to deal with inevitability, including death and taxes.  To serve our clients we have an extensive tax and estate practices.
