This is what I do – business law …
My name is Michael Palermo, and I was born and raised in Chicago. After 47 years in the city and almost 25 years as a business lawyer, I felt I needed a change. I took a year off in 2014 to recharge, living in the remote mountains of Idaho. In 2015 we settled in Asheville for, well, for the same reasons everyone else comes here.
I formed the Palermo Business Law Firm in 2006 so that I could be more flexible in the way I serve my clients, without the formalities involved in a “traditional” business law firm practice. By eliminating the lawyer’s usual rigid schedule, high overhead, and large staff, I can better help you with your litigation, transaction, professional or business issues.
I use technology to add efficiency to the practice of business law; I meet with my clients at their convenience; and as a small business owner myself, I completely understand the costs associated with hiring outside services like a lawyer. I don’t want to waste a lot of your time spinning wheels and going nowhere on your project, and frankly I don’t want do waste my own time doing that. We’ll create a direct action plan to get your issue resolved, then execute it without any unnecessary deviations.
My business law transaction practice helps all sizes of businesses and high growth start-ups with their legal documentation.
In my career as a business lawyer I’ve represented major labor unions and pension funds; the State of Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation; some of the largest chemical companies in the country; the State’s largest roadbuilders and underground contractors. I’ve taught law school, and published multiple articles.
