I am looking forward to my recent Of Counsel association with the law firm of Auman, Mahan & Furry. The association will be invaluable in making available to my clients the resources of a group excellent lawyers who can handle nearly any legal matter.
I opened the doors to Ralph A. Skilken Co. LPA in 1970, and since then I have counseled Ohio business owners from a wide array of industries. No matter the size of your company or the nature of your business, my goal is to help you move past any obstructions and toward your vision for the future. On behalf of clients in Dayton and the surrounding areas, I provide guidance on business formation, contract creation and disputes, transactions, taxes and liability, change of ownership, and other matters. I draw on more than 45 years of experience to provide all clients with the sound advice and professional advocacy they deserve.
I have earned an AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell® for my high ethical standards and professional ability. I believe that as a client, you deserve an attorney who is:
Knowledgeable — The legal advice I provide is based on my decades of experience practicing business law in Ohio. I remain up-to-date on all new developments and case law so I can provide the guidance and answers you need.
Respected — Through hard work, committed representation, and successful case outcomes, I have earned a reputation as a reliable and trustworthy advocate for area businesses.
Skilled — I am a problem solver, first and foremost. When you come to me for help, I will develop a thorough strategy to address your specific needs.
To gain a clear understanding of what you wish to accomplish and what is at stake, I will work with you one on one whenever possible.
By focusing on the following areas of law, I am able to deliver knowledgeable counsel for clients seeking help with:
Business litigation — When conflicts arise over intellectual property, breach of contract, or other issues, I will adamantly press for a solution in line with your best interests. I am committed to achieving positive business litigation outcomes and managing litigation so that it is least disruptive to your operations.
Business succession planning — If you want to hand control of your company over to a family member or non-family successor, whether tomorrow or years from now, I can help you develop a detailed business succession plan that protects your interests.
For skilled legal counsel in any of these areas, contact my office for an initial consultation. In matters involving disputes, I will seek to save you time and expense by reaching an out-of-court settlement but won’t hesitate to press your case at trial when necessary.
From the office of Ralph A. Skilken Co. LPA in Dayton, Ohio, I represent area individuals and business owners. If you need legal guidance for business law issues, call my office or contact me online.
