Practice/Industry Group Overview
The hallmark of our Business Law Department is the shared commitment of our attorneys and clients to find the best possible legal solution to any challenge confronting business today. When you ask us to consider these challenges with you, we won't reinvent the wheel. We know full well that your business requires us to develop knowledge and skills in a variety of practice areas and to deploy that talent through multi-dimensional legal teams. That's why we established practice groups, and those practice groups are why we are so successful.
Every client receives a commitment of service
Regardless of the size of your business or the nature of your legal needs, we strive to make you feel as though you are our only client. Our practice groups guide and advise clients through a host of legal challenges facing a variety of business enterprises. Whether it's a multi-national business in need of securities advice, a closely held corporation seeking counsel on succession issues, or a start-up anxious to raise capital and implement a business plan, we deliver superior service and uncommon value by providing a rapid response and creative solutions to address each concern.
Understanding your business is our business
We think our clients should expect the counsel and judgment of actively engaged partners who make it a point to understand each client's business. In addition to the depth of knowledge we derive from the breadth of our practice and experience, we continually educate ourselves about our clients. Not only do we ask questions about their businesses, their industries and their prospects, we read their trade journals, attend their industry conferences and trade shows and visit their operations, all to better understand and appreciate the unique issues and challenges they face.
We don't use a sledgehammer to pound in a nail
As we learn about each client's business and its objectives, we anticipate issues. We craft practical strategies and blend legal insight with business judgment to determine appropriate solutions to our clients' needs. We don't overstaff, we don't over-lawyer. We do what is necessary. Clients get straightforward advice from knowledgeable people. We forge common sense answers to real legal problems.
We know our role
Clients are different. Some need their lawyers to guide; others want their lawyers to lead. Some clients have little familiarity with legal issues; others have general counsel or in-house legal staff who need an answer to a specific question. In-house legal teams know that they can call on any of our practice groups to outsource a particular function or to develop an integrated extension of their in-house capabilities. Whatever the need, we listen, adapt and respond in a manner that works for the client.
We know there are lots of lawyers
Our clients need to be responsive in their own marketplaces; they have their own set of demands that must be met. Our practice groups adhere to the same set of rules. Whether it's reviewing a contract prepared by a key customer or negotiating a letter of intent to sell a business, our clients insist on fast, efficient turn around of quality service. That's exactly what we deliver. If we didn't, we wouldn't continue to be counsel to Fortune 500 clients, start-ups or to the many companies between those stages that confront ordinary and extraordinary issues every day. It's all about service and results. Our goal with each client is to exceed its expectations.
