SMP’s lawyers are uniquely capable of addressing nearly all of your legal needs. Our areas of practice include, without limitation, corporate and business law, civil litigation, trusts and estates, employment, probate litigation, construction, real estate and development, intellectual property, entertainment, insurance and various other fields. We handle matters before State and Federal Courts, the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and various other commissions and administrative tribunals.
Our lawyers have litigated hundreds of complex legal disputes, both large and small, and have collectively helped clients recover tens of millions in judgments and settlements on the plaintiff side alone. Unlike many civil litigation firms, we relish the opportunity to take any case to trial. When our clients “want their day in court” we endeavor to find cost effective and efficient ways to get them there. In matters outside the courtroom, we act as general counsel for a wide variety of businesses and can service nearly any industry.
SMP provides advice from start-up to dissolution and everything in between. In fact, our lawyers have formed and/or reorganized hundreds of businesses in areas such as construction, technology, art and entertainment, transportation, finance and lending (including lending institutions), real estate, education, food and beverage, retail and other professionals. Our lawyers are also seasoned at handling commercial transactions from complex multi-million dollar real estate deals to simple employment contracts.
SMP also assists its business and individual clients in safeguarding their assets through estate and business succession planning as well as intellectual property protection. Whether you need a will, trust or trademark and/or copyright assistance, we can help. Regardless of your legal issue, we have the knowledge, work ethic and experience to successfully assist you.
