We serve as counselors as well as advocates for Michigan businesses

An important feature of our practice is the ability to provide effective strategic advice for businesses who need help at a crossroads. You may be asking yourself questions like these: Should we borrow money? Expand into a new market? Revise our operating agreement? Finance construction of our own building? Issue new stock? Even sophisticated business people can benefit from sound advice about unfamiliar challenges or opportunities.

As our relationship with our clients deepens over the years, we develop a stronger ability to offer business advice that's based on our understanding of your market, your management style and the problems we've helped you overcome in the past.

Businesses and entrepreneurs in Oakland County, Macomb County and Wayne County have relied on Adkison, Need, Allen & Rentrop for advice and representation on matters ranging from liquor license transfers to probate court proceedings and land use/zoning issues. To learn more about our practice and our ability to help you meet your goals, contact one of our attorneys in Bloomfield Hills.

Versatile Business Attorneys in Southeast Michigan

If you need advice about issues ranging from business startup to property tax appeals or probate litigation, contact a knowledgeable attorney at the law firm of Adkison, Need, Allen & Rentrop in Bloomfield Hills. Our firm is large enough to cover the full range of general counsel needs for most companies, but small enough to assure our clients of close attention and prompt, individualized service.

Established in 1995, our law firm has the capacity to serve specialized needs associated with a broader business practice. For example, a family restaurant business that originally came to us for advice with general business formation and operations can also count on us for help with liquor license issues, special event permits, zoning and land use issues, and even estate planning.
