In his practice, Mr. Seward’s focus is on Maximizing Wealth Enhancement Opportunities while Minimizing the Risks. This starts with a sound business plan including carefully drafted agreements that address practical business issues as well as legal issues.
Failure to Minimize the Risks can very quickly erode a client’s wealth that has been accumulated over a lifetime of hard work. Contracts must be drafted with clear and unambiguous language. Litigation risks must be managed by planning as if litigation will inevitably be threatened. Intellectual property must be recognized and protected. Basic estate documents such as wills, health care directives and powers of attorney are a must for all families.
