  1. Business
    60%
    As a small business owner and entrepreneur, Fara Daun founded Steller Pacific Business Law, PLLC to respond to the needs of small businesses and their owners. Legal questions and problems can distract you from your company's mission and vision and take time from what you need to focus on. Our services are designed to address your business and personal legal concerns.

  2. Administrative law
    15%
    Businesses focused on delivering products and services can miss regulatory deadlines and compliance matters. Failing to meet requirements can be costly and not dealing with compliance can mean fines, penalties, even license suspension or the closure of your company. We can help you build your business in a way that allows you to face regulatory oversight with confidence.

  3. Government
    10%
    If you are facing regulatory action, we are experienced working with licensing entities at the local, state, and federal levels and are skilled at negotiating resolutions to administrative concerns so you can return your focus to your business as quickly as possible.

  4. Securities and investment fraud
    10%
    Are you overly excited about your business and talking up the most optimistic scenarios with people who might become investors? Omissions of less favorable information that makes can lead to a finding of fraud. Perhaps you are the investor in a business that was sold to you without disclosing real problems. Stellar Pacific Business Law can evaluate your matter and advise you, whether owner or investor, about the regulations regarding securities sales and securities fraud.

  5. Securities offerings
    5%
    Whether you are just starting out and need to issue shares to your founders or are growing and need to raise capital, we can help you understand whether your fundraising ideas fall under securities laws and how to comply.

With over 18 years of government and private practice experience, I assist businesses with administrative, regulatory, and legislative needs as well as their ongoing transactional needs.  I also assist individuals with trusts and estate planning and maintenance.

I understand the need to find creative, economical solutions to complex problems and am committed to the resolving needs of business owners. 

I have also always been interested in space exploration and development of law and am currently expanding my practice to include the needs of space entrepreneurs, both in their business needs and in the development legal and regulatory structures to support and facilitate the growth of the commercial space industry.

great results
Any attorney can provide you with paperwork. What you really want is a solution. I’ve gotten great results working with Fara Daun. In one case, I encountered an unforeseen deal-breaker in a real estate transaction. Where others predicted a lengthy and costly court action, Ms. Daun finessed a solution through shrewd diplomacy; she obtained the necessary agreements within a week and all parties walked away happy. Based on this and other interactions with her, I had total confidence bringing entity formation work to her when I launched my company. Later, when an attractive acquisition opportunity presented itself she was able to provide crucial guidance that enabled my business to pounce on it.

Marriage Dissolution
After discovering that the court had made an error in my original divorce papers, I sought out Fara Daun's help in resolving the matter so that I could move forward with my life. She was able to clear the situation up for me, and proved an invaluable representative, as I had moved out of state, and was unable to attend court locally to rectify the situation. She handled the details in a quick and simple manner and achieved the resolution I needed. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking expert legal council.

Movie Contracts
Fara has been working on some movie contracts for a feature film I produced and directed. She has done extensive research into the various contracts and has made them airtight as possible by questioning what I had promised to cast and crew and having me provide some of the informal agreements I had signed.
