Practice Areas

WelcomeHere at Nevantage, we are passionate about using Nevada’s unique tax, asset protection, business planning and trust laws to provide competitive and wealth-generating advantages to our clients. With this goal in mind, founder Mark Smallhouse moved from California to Nevada to expand his practice and have a direct impact on the direction and drafting of Nevada’s corporation, LLC and asset protection laws. Mr. Smallhouse is a longstanding member of the Nevada State Bar Association committee responsible for drafting revisions to Nevada’s business laws. He contributed substantially to the drafting of Nevada’s Series LLC laws and to laws providing for charging order protection for small corporations and single member LLCs.

Each one of our attorneys has the same passion for this work—and our clients’ success—as Mr. Smallhouse. Nevantage’s success comes from our ability to creatively solve problems and collaboratively work with our clients to find ways to improve, strengthen and grow their businesses. We work closely with our clients to develop and implement legal and business planning strategies and provide our services as cost-effectively as possible by offering fixed-fee arrangements that provide alternatives to the billable hour.

We are a different sort of corporate- and business-planning attorneys. We strive to go beyond simple competence in the field. We take pride in our work and aren’t satisfied until we’ve exceeded our clients’ expectations. Learn more about the work we do below.
