A Business Lawyer who Understands Business
When you run a business, you make decisions on a regular basis. Many of those decisions involve legal implications. Signing a lease, hiring an executive, branding a new product or service, borrowing money, selling a division – the list goes on – all have legal considerations.
Adam brings an understanding of business to his representation of clients. He understands that legal considerations, while important, are only one aspect of making informed business decisions. Depending on the nature of the transaction, you may have to consider and balance many other factors, such as return on investment, effect on staff, impact on your brand, capacity of your vendors, liquidity and opportunity cost.
Important decisions should not be made with a one-size-fits-all approach. They should be tailored to your specific business situation and goals.
Adam provides business counsel to clients based on over 30 years of experience in law and business. He provides straightforward advice and guidance to assist you in making decisions. He enjoys finding creative, holistic solutions to your business challenges.
Helping Close Transactions
Risk is inherent in business. Lawyers sometimes get the reputation of being “deal breakers” because they try to eliminate the risk in a transaction. But that’s not possible.
Adam is a “deal closer”. His goal is to encourage successful, win-win transactions while minimizing and managing risk.
Every paragraph in an agreement could be negotiated for hours, but that would be time-consuming, counterproductive and expensive. Adam can help you prioritize what’s important based on your business objectives.
Adam’s experience includes litigating business disputes. Adam’s understanding of how business disputes are resolved helps him to structure transactions and draft documents in a way to (hopefully) avoid them.
After graduating from Harvard Law School with Honors, Adam worked as an attorney (and was elected a partner) at Gallagher and Kennedy, one of the largest and most respected law firms in Phoenix, Arizona. He worked on business and real estate transactions, as well as commercial and injury litigation.
