A Different Kind of Law Firm

I started this firm, after practicing as a business lawyer in large and smaller firms for 20 years, to address what I came to see as a glaring inefficiency in the legal services market.

The Problem

Over the course of my career as a lawyer, the technology tools I use to do my job have become ever more available, powerful and affordable.  Simultaneously, and in part because of those technological advances, the information resources that lawyers use have become ubiquitous, and it is easier than ever before for lawyers to share know-how and ideas.

It stands to reason, then, that the cost of providing sophisticated legal services to emerging companies should have decreased proportionally.  But if you are an entrepreneur, or operate a business venture and use legal resources, or have recently bought or sold a business, you know that, in fact, the opposite has occurred.  The cost of high-quality legal services keeps rising.  The law firm business model has, for the most part, simply failed to leverage the opportunities offered by these changing circumstances.

Meanwhile, some lawyers within traditional law firms want to pursue start-up and early-stage business, and firms, ostensibly at least, recognize that start-ups constitute a pipeline for profitable corporate work.  So, they cobble together gimmicks like "engage us now, pay later" or "use our free information to start your company," which work about as well as you'd guess.
