START UP & SMALL BUSINESS LAW

Whether you are intellectual property or real property, we can protect you!

The Law Offices of Oeser-Sweat, P.C. is particularly proud of its startup-small business practice!  Oeser-Sweat, P.C. was started at Sunshine Suites, one of the largest small business incubator spaces in New York City.  Sunshine Suites was one of Oeser-Sweat, P.C.’s first clients in 2003.

Our firm provides support services to small and medium-sized businesses from many different areas.  We have proudly watched our clients go from corporation/corporate entity formation (Corp., S-Corp., LLC, LLP, LP, etc) to become bigger companies, with evolving needs.  Some of our client companies are sold, others buy companies and some just add employees and rent new bigger office spaces.  From lease negotiation to corporation/small business sales and purchases, to brand building, to internet marketing, to contract drafting and review, we have been able to help our client companies grow, without having to spend significant amounts of money for quality legal services.

No two companies are alike.  We can help your company with a variety of needs.  But, as we tell our clients, we don’t do everything.  One of the key features of the legal support we provide clients is a network of specialists that a client can be referred to in order to solve a problem.  We are proud to reveal that we often will send a client who needs a particular skill set to another attorney.  Our focus is on solving the problems of our client’s and implementing problem-solving solutions to their needs, rather than trying to be SuperLawyers or trying to earn a fee to the detriment of our clients.

  • Civil Litigation
