A corporate officer and in-house counsel for nearly half of his career, Sheldon understands the real world business pressures of owners and managers to increase profits, grow sales, expand markets and manage employees within the ever changing legal requirements.  Armed with nearly 30 years of experience both in private practice and as in-house General Counsel, Sheldon counsels and supports those business owners, directors, officers and managers to make informed and practical decisions that balance those demands.
