For over forty-five years, Dennis has advised business owners in all areas of contract and

corporate law. He focuses primarily on assisting his clients with business succession

planning, estate planning, contract and corporate law—with an emphasis on mergers and

acquisitions, shareholder/partner disputes, and financial workouts for businesses. One of

the founding members of the firm in 1973, Dennis has assisted hundreds of business

owners and their companies in structuring successful business succession plans. These

comprehensive plans have included assisting business owners in their estate planning,

providing the owners—if necessary—with retirement income as part of the plan, and

determining who would control the business in the future and when and how changes

would occur.
