The Business Law Group utilizes a proactive approach, focusing on both dedication to our clients and commitment to integrity, to provide the highest quality and highest value legal services.

About Us

The Business Law Group was founded by Ryan Van Osdol, an attorney with extensive experience in civil litigation and advising business clients on key legal decisions. Mr. Van Osdol formed the Business Law Group for the purpose of providing general counsel to small and medium sized businesses who need cost-effective legal advice on a day-to-day basis, as well as representing both individuals and business clients in civil litigation matters. The Business Law Group leverages its substantial experience and an aggressive, proactive approach to provide the highest quality legal services to our clients. We represent clients in a wide variety of litigation matters and business issues. One of the unique features that sets us apart from other law firms is our customized General Counsel Packages that we build for businesses in need of legal advice on a regular basis.

The Business Law Group offers our business clients a General Counsel Package for a flat monthly fee, so business owners and key decision makers can always feel comfortable getting legal advice regarding important business issues before deciding how to proceed and without worrying about any unknown costs. All too often, business owners and key decision makers don't get the legal advice they need, when they need it, because they don't want the unknown expense. Businesses are worried about being charged for every email or phone call, or they don't consider the legal consequences before acting. They often end up in litigation because they did not get legal advice before making key business decisions. Accordingly, we have developed our General Counsel Packages to provide business clients with a robust suite of legal services for a flat monthly fee.
