Kenneth Hart joined Carney Badley Spellman, P.S. in 2010. Mr. Hart’s practice is focused on commercial and business transactions, business startups, real estate transactions and related litigation.
Mr. Hart assists clients with business formations, as well as with negotiating and drafting partnership, shareholder and employment contracts and negotiating and documenting business purchases and sales and secured sales transactions. For many of his business clients, Mr. Hart serves the role of general counsel to handle such matters as lease negotiations, vendor disputes, employment issues, sales and acquisitions and ownership succession. He strives to stay current with his clients and to be available and responsive when they need help and advice so that they can concentrate on running and growing their businesses.
In addition to business law, Mr. Hart has extensive litigation, trial practice and appellate experience in various courts and jurisdictions, both state and federal, and in a broad range of areas.

He is also a trained mediator and experienced arbitrator.
Both by training and inclination, Mr. Hart is a problem solver, and his approach to the practice of law is collaborative. That means helping clients better understand whatever situation they are facing and providing them with the information and guidance they need to make informed decisions. His experience as both a transactional lawyer and a litigator allows him to better provide his clients with insightful strategic planning and the advice they need to meet their day-to-day challenges.
