Introduction: Founder of boutique law firm focusing on commercial and corporate law with a special interest in working with socially conscious and sustainable businesses. I’m a graduate of Columbia Law School with 10 years of experience with contract drafting, negotiations, M&A, real estate, trademark filings, and corporate law matters. I advise corporations of all types and sizes including social purpose corporations, small businesses, and B-corps. My clients love how I keep things simple, educate them on their options, and help them navigate challenges with a conscious and collaborative mindset. Prior to founding my firm, I worked at two of the nation’s top law firms on large scale deals, including billion-dollar wind and solar projects. My first phone consultation with any prospective client is always free of charge, so let me know if you'd like to discuss your legal needs over the phone.

Shiela is amazing! She helped me out with everything I needed and was extremely patient with me throughout the entire process. All of my questions were answered and then some, I would definitely use her services again when the time comes. I am beyond satisfied.

First and foremost, you will not find a better or more professional and intelligent Lawyer anywere. Shelia was always comforting, and yet honest through the whole time we spent with her. She knew exactly what to do, how to do it, and even how to council us on our role in the situation. As for communication and being able to get a hold of her and her willingness to call back immediately or as quick as possible was amazing! The bottom line is if you need top notch, class act, from head to toe service then you’re wasting your time if you don’t go with Shelia. Thank you again.

I am very satisfied and extremely happy I selected Sheila Merchant Law out of the several companies recommended to me!! She drafted onboarding contracts for our independent contractors, and helped answer many questions about our business structure. We needed the work done quickly, and she was always super responsive. Thank you and it was a pleasure to do business with you!!

Sheila was amazing at helping my broker a lease settlement with my commercial landlord after COVID. She knew the law and my lease very well and was able to get me a $54,000 credit, and help me negotiate a new lease. I cannot express how grateful I am to have found her.
