General Counsel Services

Business organizations of all types and sizes need legal counsel throughout the business life cycle. The unfortunate fact is many small to mid-size businesses do not regularly seek the advice of counsel. Usually this leads to businesses attempting to address legal issues on their own and, many times, remaining unaware of potential legal issues until the time for proactive risk management has passed. Both put your business at a disadvantage.

Wicker Law Firm serves businesses as outsourced general counsel on a flat-fee arrangement tailored to fit the specific legal needs of your business. The firm informs, consults, and advises on issues that arise in the day-to-day running of your business so that you can not only focus on managing the business, but make informed business decisions while doing so. From identifying and addressing complex contractual issues, to ensuring significant businesses decisions are made in compliance with the rules that govern your business, Wicker Law Firm can serve your business’s legal needs in a cost-effective manner.

Landlord-Tenant Law

Wicker Law Firm serves landlords, property managers, and tenants in every kind of commercial lease dispute ranging from “run of the mill” eviction matters to claims of non-monetary default under complex commercial leases.

Commercial leases are an integral part of modern business and lease terms often close without a dispute between landlord and tenant. However, when a dispute does arise, obtaining the best possible outcome is critical.  Whether the dispute is simple or complex, an unfavorable outcome can have a crippling and lasting impact.

Wicker Law Firm understands the critical nature of lease disputes, and the need to achieve the best possible result for each client.  No matter the nature of the dispute, the firm will use its extensive knowledge and experience to protect and enforce your lease rights.

Alternative fee structures may be available to serve your needs in the most cost-effective manner and are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

If you are involved in a lease dispute or believe your rights under a lease may have been violated, please reach out today to learn more.
