Our mission is to understand our clients, their businesses and their objectives; to conduct ourselves such that we are trusted, valued and respected by our clients and community; and to continuously strive to exceed expectations in everything that we do. For our clients, we work hard, are thoughtful and efficient, demonstrate the utmost integrity, and provide an uncommon level of service and dependability. For our firm, we foster a positive and collaborative environment based on open communication and mutual respect that provides the platform for each of us to be the very best that he or she can be. For our community, we provide strong leadership and meaningful service.
We are a boutique business law firm driven by big firm experience and small firm values. Our lawyers possess business experience outside of the practice of law and many possess advanced degrees in addition to law degrees, giving us a perspective that is not based solely on that of a lawyer. Our partners have practiced law at some of the largest and most respected law firms in the world and we consist of a team of highly qualified, well-experienced and devoted attorneys and professionals who care deeply about our clients, their businesses and objectives, and the level of service we provide to them.
We provide business, corporate, real estate, international and tax related legal services to entrepreneurs; real estate investors, developers, and operators; emerging growth businesses; and middle market companies, across various industries, including real estate, hospitality, manufacturing, distribution, professional services, defense and technology.
We listen to and understand our clients. We learn everything we can about our clients, their businesses and their objectives. We think before we do, we work harder and we relentlessly strive to continuously improve. We respond promptly and keep our clients informed. We design and implement practical solutions for our clients’ business and legal issues on behalf of our clients. We build long-standing and meaningful relationships with our clients. Ultimately, we seek to provide our clients with peace of mind-the assurance that comes from knowing that everything we do is done to the highest standard of excellence, that we solve problems instead of creating them, and that we play an integral role in the growth and success of their businesses.
If you've had an attorney before, you may already know the answer. Where many lawyers focus on billable hours, we focus on improving efficiency and providing value. Where many lawyers seem distant and non-responsive and fail to return telephone calls or respond to emails, we build deep relationships, respond immediately and are there when our clients need us. Where many lawyers identify potential problems and tell clients why they can't do what they want to do, we identify solutions and help them accomplish their objectives. Where many lawyers are contentious and argumentative, we are friendly, do not argue for the sake of arguing, and get the deal across the finish line. We run our law firm like a business instead of like a law firm. That is why we are different and that is why our clients routinely return to us for their most important matters.
