The Law Office of Edward E. Sharkey LLC  concentrates on business law and civil litigation.  We represent  businesses  and  individuals  throughout  Maryland,  Washington DC,  and  the  United States in the areas of business and corporate law, commercial transactions, and civil litigation, including the litigation of business, contract, securities, pension, construction, and professional liability disputes.

Our firm has the skill and experience to handle legal matters arising at every stage of the business life cycle, from start-up to dissolution, including the negotiation and documentation of business financing, commercial transactions, employment and non-compete agreements, sales, acquisitions, leases, and licenses.

On behalf of businesses and individuals, we litigate cases at all levels of federal and state court, as well as every major arbitral forum.

What makes us unique?
The firm represents some of the world’s largest and best-known companies. We also, however, counsel start-ups and private businesses of all sizes. Our clients benefit from our training and experience with the most sophisticated matters, but because we are a smaller firm, they enjoy a higher level of attention and more economical fees than large firms provide.

Our firm also has a depth of experience in both transactional and trial work. This is uncommon, and we foster that breadth of experience. Why does this benefit our clients? A corporate lawyer can best protect a client’s interest if the lawyer knows how transactions and companies unravel during disputes. Similarly, a trial lawyer can best resolve conflict for a client if the lawyer understands the rights and obligations arising from the relevant documents. Our breadth of experience also means that business clients meet most of their legal needs by partnering with our firm.

Our business attorneys assist clients in Maryland, Washington DC, and nationwide.
