Portland is already buzzing about the fitness start-up business Be Activ, LLC, which the business team at Sussman Shank LLP helped get off the ground with legal services ranging from entity formation to trademark protection. 

Sussman Shank enjoys working with entrepreneurs to help them succeed.  As business owners ourselves, we understand resources are limited and strategic legal decisions can make or break a business.  "Working with our start-up clients is truly rewarding and unique," said Heather A. Kmetz, Chair of the firm's Business Department and Sussman Shank Partner for Be Activ, LLC.  "Our partnership with our clients allows us to get to know their passion, their industry, and their life."
