Emerging Business and Start-Ups

Client and Industry Challenges

Entrepreneurs make enormous personal and professional sacrifices to start and build their companies.  They take great risks in order to bring their vision to life and often have limited resources to confront a seemingly endless stream of legal/administrative hurdles and competitive threats.  They fight daily not just for market share, but for their very survival.

The entrepreneurial client’s unique needs demand a different type of attorney, one who will invest the time and effort required to understand each client’s distinctive industry and business.  This means an attorney who: can help address critical legal issues on small legal budgets; offers business-centric legal solutions designed to solve problems, not create more of them; can translate complex legal concepts into client-friendly recommendations; and does not merely highlight the legal options, but identifies the path that will best advance the client’s business interests.  In short, a lawyer with entrepreneurial DNA who has walked the walk.

We understand and are passionate about serving entrepreneurs and their companies in all stages of development.
