Are we the right legal counsel for you?  Here is how we look at the world:

Integrated Counseling

 

Your operations and business transactions are rarely simple.  You continually balance risks and benefits, seeking to optimize outcomes with imperfect information.  Your results are dependent on external circumstances. 

We have represented both small and large companies in many industries, and we have negotiated against many of the world's leading enterprises.  We have seen what it takes to consistently score above the mean even when the leverage is on the other side of the table.  We know that achieving "alpha" in your business will raise your private company above other startups, or will steer your public enterprise towards higher EPS relative to your public company peers.

We know that succeeding means being smarter, faster, and more efficient.  But there is something else that we have learned your legal advisor can do to to take you up one more level: integrated counseling.

Operating Principles

We enjoy what we do, and we only work with companies for which we believe we can add real value.  We don't try to do everything for everyone.

 

Here are some of our guiding principles:

  • We are small and like it that way.  The work we do requires experience, and you deserve sophisticated counsel.  Larger firms may assign junior associates to your business, but we don't do that.

  • If we are the right legal partner for yor business and we commit to you as a client, we work hard to cotinue to earn your business every day.  We know you have options, and we know that you can find a lawyer with a simple Google search.  We think we are better.  If we ever feel that someone else could do your work better, faster and cheaper, we will tell you.

  • We charge reasonable fees.  Our goal is not to maximize our income, but to optimize your outcome.  If we are the best legal counsel for your business, we are confident that things will work out well in the long term.  If you ever feel that we did not earn our fees, please tell us and we will refund them.
