My name is James Elegante and I clear the pathway to resolving business-to-business or partner conflicts through a fair and balanced legal perspective. Because of my vast international experience and love of language and culture, I have navigated the legal aspects of many international agreements for companies and corporations. While much of my experience has been with multi-million and billion dollar companies both in the U.S. and abroad, I am excited to be able to shift my focus and bring my experience to entrepreneurs who need a trusted advisor and legal counselor to realize their business goals regardless of their location or size.
