About Karen P. Wackerman
I work with companies, nonprofits and individuals to help them with their business needs. I form companies, prepare owner agreements, create form agreements for clients to use in their businesses, draft and review contracts with vendors, employers and customers, and provide general legal counselling. Working with business owners is a real pleasure for me; I enjoy being part of the team that helps these companies succeed. I also help investment advisers with compliance, formation and general business law issues.
