Our Deal Philosophy:
Unlike many lawyers, we view each transaction on a collaborative basis and not an adversarial exercise. Why? Because you should be partners with your customers and vendors - we but business goals first.
Deals can take a long time. We are commercial transactions attorneys who can decrease cycles, focus on important issues and propose market compromises to get deals done in short time frames.
When we start a representation, our goal is to understand business objectives and service/product delivery expectations. We believe in aligning interests to achieve goals quickly.
While we always strive for a win-win approach, we never compromise on critical client issues and ensure appropriate provisions are in place to protect clients and position clients for success in the deal.
Sophisticated commercial attorneys and technology transaction lawyers don't need to cost you big firm rates. Our experience matches any large firm yet our rates are a fraction. We excel at flat fee engagements.
