San Francisco Business Law, San Francisco Commercial Law

Commercial law is a broad topic that encompasses a range of business and consumer transactional activities. Some common facets of commercial law are the sale and leasing of goods, business to business and employee contracts, shareholder and partner agreements, and creditor/debtor matters. Mike Tonsing understands that commercial law issues have an impact on a business’s relationships with vendors, customers and employees and, by extension, its ability to meet and overcome challenges.
