Bernard A. Williams is a partner in the Philadelphia law firm Legis Group, LLC, where his practice is focused on representing local and regional small business owners.
As a small business advisor, his mission is to help business owners live out their dreams, fulfill their goals, and beat the odds by removing all potential roadblocks in their way.
His services are designed for small business owners and entrepreneurial people who are either considering starting a business, or individuals who have already established a business who want to place themselves in a position to further their success. Through his counsel, he reveals to clients some of the most common legal problems their likely to experience, so they better understand how to anticipate and avoid these problems, plan ahead, and grow their company confidently.
The demand for Bernard’s business advisory services have grown to the point where he now has clients all over the country. As his client, the first thing he does with you is sit down with you 1-on-1 to find out more about you, your business, and your reasons for contacting him. With both his legal expertise and business advisory skills, he’ll help you to identify your problems, then work along with you to help decide your best course of action and a customized solution to any and all problems your business may be facing.
He believes there are two ways of doing things: the safe route, which doesn’t always pay off; and the road less travelled, which is the one that usually garners the most success. As an entrepreneur, he understands you have a vision … You probably know where you want to go and who you want to be, but as an individual with such ambitious ideals, it is often all too easy to overlook how to actually get there and achieve your dreams. As a business advisor, his job is to help you focus more on the details. The legal aspect certainly helps, but there is so much more than that when it comes to success.
