Norton Law Corporation

Attorney and Counselor at Law

Norton Law Corporation was founded with the idea we could create a boutique law firm dedicated to the entrepreneurs of the world. It is a full-service, primarily flat fee, firm focused on small business owners and internet start-ups—people who took that leap to start out and do their own thing.

But what does full-service mean? Well, it means we provide (practically) everything a business owner needs to assist in the growth and development of her company. Here's a few examples:

◆ Business Entity Formation
◆ Contract Drafting and Negotiation
◆ Trademark, Copyright, and Trade Secret Protection
◆ Employment/Employer Protection Services
◆ Commercial Lease Drafting and Review
◆ Purchase and Sale of Stock or Membership Interest
◆ Sale of Business and Business Entity Dissolution

At Norton Law Corporation, we're all about developing relationships with business owners so we can assist them in effectively growing their businesses. So give us a call or send us an email and we'll be happy to help you in any way we can.
