Business Law

In today's challenging economic climate, businesspeople and entrepreneurs are faced with a never-ending series of decisions, many of which have legal implications for the success of their business. Some companies have in-house counsel to manage legal issues. For most companies, however, competent legal guidance is essential, while maintaining in-house counsel is impractical.

Unlike business attorneys who have never actually worked in business, attorney Melissa Orme is a former Vice President and CFO of one major corporation, and a Senior Director of International Finance at another. A Certified Public Accountant with an MBA as well as a law degree, Melissa understands firsthand the financial and operational realities of business.
