I am the managing partner of Aeton Law Partners LLP.   I have been an attorney in practice for over 24 years.  My law practice includes representation of individuals and businesses in a range of matters such as breach of contract, business disputes, trade and commerce, technology, and employment.  I also provide general counsel services for small and mid-sized businesses.  In this role, I advise business owners and management on a range of legal issues to include contract drafting, risk management, litigation, and employment.  I practice law throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts in both state and federal courts.   I have been writing about business litigation and technology issues for more than 10 years, and started this blog to offer business owners information on a wide range of matters.   My goal is to help businesses  avoid costly lawsuits, sleep better at night, and grow the business.  There is a saying in the legal industry that in a typical business dispute the only one that wins is the attorney.  Sadly, this sometimes happens.  Lawyers take in fees that are better spent on growing the business.  I recently published my first book “How to Bullet Proof Your Business.” You can request a free copy at this link. The book is based on my experiences with business owners in litigation and the top 10 lessons learned from handing these disputes.  I also recently launched an alternative dispute resolution practice specifically tailored to handling mediation of business disputes.   These cases are often complex and not easily understood by the typical mediators.

At Aeton, we bring a wide range of experience in these matters and understand the complexities of business disputes.  Our understanding of these issues allows us to help craft common sense solutions and avoid wasting time and resources in litigation.

I am an attorney at Aeton Law Partners LLP where I practice law in Connecticut’s state and federal courts. I represent individuals and businesses in a range of matters but typically handle business litigation and employment disputes. My business litigation practice involves partnership, LLC and corporate shareholder disputes of all shapes and sizes. I also handle a fair amount of commercial landlord tenant matters and other breach of contract claims. My employment law practice includes non-competition and trade secrets litigation as well as wage and hour litigation, including plaintiff class actions.

I started contributing to this blog to provide information that I believe business owners and employees should be aware of when navigating these ever changing times. My posts cover recent lawsuits, case decisions, legislation, and other legal and societal issues. Additionally, I periodically will stray off topic and offer practical tips or thoughts on a host of issues relevant to Connecticut business owners and employees.

The constant evolution of the law is fascinating to me and I enjoy staying up to date on these developments. Being a former collegiate athlete, I like to think of the law’s constant evolution as changes to the rules of the game. As attorneys, it’s our job to know and understand the changes to best advise and advocate for clients in and out of the courtroom.

I hope my posts will provide you some insight on recent legal developments in Connecticut to assist your business and individual legal needs.
