Good business law advice supports your success

Partnering with a business law attorney increases your chances of success. That is true whether you are a new entrepreneur or an established business, a sole proprietor or a corporation,

GSJones Law Group partner, Norman Short, stands ready to put his 25 years of experience in Washington State business law to work for your business.  Due to his lengthy experience in the formation of business entities Norm offers seasoned advice to businesses. He advises businesses every step of the way through business formation, starting with drafting the first documents and preparing and reviewing business contracts. We recently significantly increased our ability to serve businesses when attorney Kim Hammit joined our firm. She focuses on small business formation and support, as well as employment law.

Norman Short works with most business structures.

  • Sole proprietors
  • Limited liability companies
  • Cooperatives
  • Corporations
  • S corporations
  • Partnerships

We are flexible to meet your needs. Whether you need a retainer to provide regular advice or contract review on an as-needed basis, we structure our relationship to meet your needs. In addition, Norm often serves as general corporate counsel to local businesses.

Business law experience plus advanced training and experience in tax law

As a tax attorney with an advanced degree (LL.M.) in tax law, Norman Short’s business tax knowledge is especially relevant to the needs of most businesses. He also represents clients before the United States Tax Court and the Internal Revenue Service.

Additionally, employment law advice saves businesses time, staff and lawsuits

Alongside business legal advice and tax advice, good employee relations is another key to business success. A review of your employee manual, personnel contracts and practices helps you to:

  • retain good employees
  • ensure that you are treating your employees fairly
  • terminate and discipline in a legal manner
  • prevent lawsuits

Employment law attorneys, Chalmers Johnson and Kim Hammit, love to work with businesses to support good employee relations. And, good employee relations with clear policies contribute much to the success of the business. Put his 21 years of experience to work for you.
