Business-to-Business Law

Foley Mansfield isn't a typical law firm – we are a business whose business happens to be the law. We believe that business cannot achieve long-term success without being properly structured, well-managed and financially disciplined. We also believe that financial reward will follow these achievements – but should not be allowed to take precedence over them.

This perspective is the key to why so many rely on our counsel to help run their business effectively. We know it's not just about fulfilling legal obligations and protecting legal rights: it's about helping businesses make good decisions in all areas of business practice, management and citizenship. That is why we define our success by the impact we have on our clients, whose businesses span a range of industries, including:

  • Banking and Financial Services

  • Construction & Design
  • Franchises
