Our business is all about supporting yours. (Because quality businesses need quality legal.)

Empathy. Professionalism.

And a love of the game.

Relationships matter when you’re trying to get a business off the ground, when you’re sharing big ideas, or in that one-off life moment you need someone who gets how the pieces fit together.

As it happens, that’s when having an advocate matters most, too.

That’s why it’s our belief that empathy is just as important as professionalism: they’re two sides of the same coin, and for us, both are a must—whatever business you’re in.

Services

Legal support for small businesses, innovators, creatives, and you.

We currently represent individuals and small businesses in the creative, startup, and hospitality industries, though we’re always looking to create relationships in new fields.

Creative Agencies

Agencies don’t produce things. They produce ideas. We help protect that creative—and the teams behind it. That means making sure young agencies take off on solid footing. (Getting paid for their work as agreed, say.) It lets them keep their heads down in the studio without worrying about who’s paying for it.

startups
STARTUPS + SMALL BUSINESSES

Understanding the ins and outs of raising money in the startup environment is critical: an advocate fluent in venture financing can ultimately save a startup a lot of money. Equally important? Shepherding the nitty gritty, like filing an 83(b) election, understanding convertible debt, and perfecting the IP on code for software.

hospitality
Hospitality

The hospitality industry is notoriously tough on up-and-comers. It’s our goal to make the process as smooth as possible by getting businesses off to a strong start, both financially (with things like fundraising documentation) and with lease negotiations (or buyout agreements).

individuals
INDIVIDUALS

There are plenty of reasons you might need a lawyer’s support. Give us a call; if we can’t help, we’ll point you in the right direction. Initial consultations are always free.

Please, call me Bobby. Really. I insist.

ABOUT ME

I got involved in law for the same reason so many people find it challenging: the complexity and structure of it are hugely appealing to me. But it’s more than that: I also love working closely as part of a team, advancing ideas and building up businesses, which is why you’ll so often find me with my feet on the ground (not up on a desk).

Supporting the ideas and projects my clients care about most frees them to focus on their work, their lives, and their businesses. And that matters as much to me as it does to them.
