Our History

At first glance, one might think what A Business Law Firm does is self-evident. However, founding partner Thomas Belenchia took the Spartanburg-based law firm’s services far beyond the practice of business law. Thomas founded the firm in 1994. It has significantly grown since then with clients throughout the Carolinas. Chelsea Rikard and Lauren Ward, who have been with the firm for several years, are now the managing members of the firm since Thomas’ retirement in 2022. Chelsea and Lauren are committed to the growth and continuation of the firm’s history of excellence in service. Their focus is working with businesses, business owners, and individuals to help with everything from creating the business, helping with daily operations, representing the business in a lawsuit, buying or selling a business, and even estate and succession planning. They go full circle with the life cycle of the business. A Business Law Firm is here to support both businesses and individuals in the community with our services.
