I recently needed legal advice for my small company. Steve helped me navigate business decisions from a legal perspective and develop practical and efficient solutions. His in-depth working knowledge of small businesses and his experience with all kinds of issues, gives me multiple options and ways to tackle the matters at hand. Steve also provides access to a valuable network of other professionals in the community to assist with financial advice, business valuation, and business taxes.
Steve’s strongest assets are his level-headedness, calm demeanor, experience, and integrity.
I value Steve’s legal support and I will continue to use him as my small business lawyer. I recommend him highly to anyone who needs legal assistance for their company.

Steve provides excellent general counsel across a wide range of corporate matters. In addition to his insightful and astute legal opinions, he always brings an appreciated practicality to any discussion. Steve always starts with understanding what's best for the business, then proceeds to constructing the appropriate legal course of action.
Steve is one of the best lawyers I've dealt with over my years in the technology industry.

Four years ago, we were in need of an attorney who could advise us on issues affecting our small business. We were introduced to Stephen Leasia, and have been thankful for that introduction ever since. Steve has advised us on matters related to corporate restructuring, contracts, government relations and human resources, among topics. In all of our discussions, Steve has been great to work with. He is accessible, knowledgeable and explains issues in terms that are easy to understand. He works efficiently, so his services are affordable for us. Working with Steve feels like calling a friend for advice (if your friend had expertise in small business law). We would highly recommend Stephen Leasia to other small owners.

11 years ago Steve helped me form my first company. Last month, he helped me start another. Over the course of that time he has helped our software company on numerous occasions, and I expect him to continue to help us with our new endeavor. He is extremely knowledgable and has a great way of contextualizing that knowledge with examples grounded in the real world. Most importantly, our bond of trust has grown so that I know he always has my best interests at heart.
You may be able to do as well, but if you're a small company in need of corporate counsel, you can't do any better than Stephen H. Leasia.

Steve has been counsel for our company for the past 10 years, or better yet, through
a growth trajectory from 4 employees to our current 70 + employees. Steve’s legal knowledge, analytical abilities, judgment and integrity has served us well over the years when faced with business decisions of importance to both an entrepreneurial start-up and now an industry leader. Among his many attributes, Steve excels in contract negotiation, capital fund raising and knowledge of intellectual property.
His judgment is impeccable and his counsel and communication skills exceptional, which is often those intangible assets that businesses benefit from when navigating through difficult decisions. Any startup, early-stage or midsize company would greatly benefit from Steve’s experience and professionalism, without reservation I do completely endorse Steve Leasia.

I have worked with Steve on and off for the last 14 years. He's been outside counsel and inside counsel for companies I have worked for. When I started my own company, Steve was the first call I had to make. I cannot say enough good things about Steve and the way he represents his clients. He has a style that makes me confident he is looking out for me first. At the same time he takes a practical look at a situation to be sure I can understand the other parties viewpoint. We have worked together on variety of deals including VC financing, corporate formation, stock option plans, employment law and patent/trademark. I can think of an example where he was instrumental in reviewing/creating a contract that enabled me to collect a six-figure amount that was rightly due. I highly recommend Steve.

I first worked with Steve 12 years ago when he was the counsel for a Start Up company I was an executive at. Since then he has been the go-to lawyer for my own company needs, and I have recommended him to others who have been equally happy with him. He is above all accessible, excellent at explaining the legal niceties of an issue without being convoluted or arrogant. I have learned to trust his expertise, which is what I need in a lawyer.

We recently retained Steve to guide us through the sale of several company assets, as well as review of employment agreements. He consistently demonstrated a strong working knowledge of the entire range of issues we were facing in our business transition, as well as a deep appreciation for our timing constraints. In addition, Steve has a great ability to provide common sense guidance about what issues really matter. I strongly recommend Steve.

Stephen Leasia is an exemplary lawyer in his field of business, contracts, Intellectual-property, and negotiating complex business deals. I have known Steve for over 30 years and his integrity and intelligence are highly respected by his lawyer peers and by the business community at large. One of Steve's great skills is the ability to make very complex matters simple to understand for parties bogged down in confusion. He helps resolve the confusion which often helps dissolve disputes altogether. I believe that Steve is one of the most trustworthy people I've ever known and I highly recommend him to anybody seeking a lawyer for their business matters.
