Slinde Nelson







Ben focuses his practice on complex commercial contract drafting and negotiation, corporate law, and intellectual property law. Ben has experience in entity formation, start-ups, small business laws and operations, buying and selling a business, starting or acquiring a medical or dental practice, negotiating manufacturing, supply, and distribution agreements, and dispute resolution.

As an entrepreneur himself, Ben is as happy to delve into your business plan and five-year pro formas, as he is in counseling your business on its corporate structure, intellectual property protection and barrier creation, and exit strategy.


When he's not practicing law, Ben enjoys working with start-ups and emerging businesses.
