Elena has been extremely supportive in helping me figure out the appropriate steps of branding, trademarking and copyrighting. Even more importantly, she helped me understand the differences between filing as an S-Corp versus an LLC, what the advantages and disadvantages of each are and which would be beneficial for me and my situation. Thank you, Elena, for being so readily available, helpful and informative. I highly recommend Elena Rivkin Franz for any of your business legal needs.
