Our Unique Approach

Mission Statement

To help businesses and individuals seize opportunities and meet challenges through our delivery of strategic, resourceful and timely, legal advice and support.

Raising the Bar from Service to Value

In serving our clients, we:

  • Employ a “Transition -- Transaction – Tools methodology. Underlying every transaction or estate plan is our client’s desire to change something, e.g., in ownership of a business or how assets will be distributed upon death. The structure of the “transaction is the means by which the desired “transition” can be achieved. Then we select the legal “tools” best suited to the transaction.
  • Practice law from a humanistic, holistic and interdisciplinary platform that recognizes that the delivery of legal services is a process rather than a commodity.
  • Blend our technical expertise in the crafting of legal documents with client-focused counsel that tests critical assumptions, focuses the client’s and our attention and efforts on what is most important and provides clarity, strategy and direction.
  • Offer solutions that are tailored to each client’s situation, needs, goals and competitive environment as opposed to taking generic legal tools off a shelf.
  • Often give our clients broader responses and more value than they think they require because we base solutions not only on what clients tell us, but on what our experience, knowledge, research and answers to our probing questions tell us about their needs and challenges.
  • When we and our client agree that it is appropriate, collaborate with experts outside the field of law to meet the client’s needs.
