What is business law?
Business law is commonly referred to as the general field of law relating to business organizations, business structures, and business transactions. Business law also refers to the laws that apply to business entities, such as partnerships, limited liability companies and corporations (including a c-corporation / subchapter s corporation).
It is our goal to provide our business clients with a more holistic lawyer that works closely with senior leadership in order to align more tightly with business goals and strategies for growing the business while at the same time maintaining a traditional role of mitigating corporate risk. We believe it is important as your business lawyer to help your company move away from being reactive to being proactive. This can be achieved by, among other things, developing a relationship that is in tune with the business goals and priorities of the entity, its people, processes, and technology so that all can work in harmony to further the primary goals of the company.
As corporate counsel we strive to be “where the action is” by taking on a more non-traditional role.
We like to visit our client’s facility - at no charge - to meet the employees and to experience the operation first hand. We often attend outside meetings with senior executives where we meet their vendors and customers in an informal non-legal setting. All of this helps us identify potential exposure, recognize a litigation trend, or learn a lesson in the field sooner rather than later which translates into dollars saved and problems avoided.
We realize that times have changed, and companies are moving away from the high dollar law firms. Our approach is to leave you feeling that we are more like in-house counsel without the cost of a high dollar law firm. Like large firms, we know that lawyers must be readily accessible via smart phones, tablets, email, or other collaboration tools. We maintain an almost 100% paperless, secure, cloud-based system, so our office can follow us when and where we go.
If you are seeking a corporate counsel who is technically savvy and focused on better collaboration with the company owners, then we would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to show you how we may be able to fulfill your legal needs at a lower cost than you are currently paying. So, if you are seeking a business lawyer who is focused on better collaboration with stakeholders toward the goal of greater efficiency and more cost savings then we would welcome the opportunity to meet with you.
