Unmatched Direct Selling Law Expertise
The environment in which the MLM and direct selling industry must operate has put a premium on effective legal counsel. Direct selling and MLM companies must strategically and tactically prepare for this environment. Such preparation demands a breadth and depth of experience from your attorney in all aspects of corporate operations, as well as in the law of direct selling and multilevel marketing.

The legal services we provide extend far beyond the specific laws surrounding the MLM and direct selling industry. Indeed, our comprehensive legal services are designed to help you successfully navigate the expansive labyrinth of federal, state and international statutes and regulations, as well as the confusing world of contracts, litigation, labor and other law associated with domestic and international business.
