Attorneys and Clients that we seek


We do not want every great lawyer and we do not want every high quality client! There - we have said it out loud


Over the years we have learned that we are practicing law in a very special way.  We deliver a service to our clients that is a lot deeper than just putting words into documents or briefs.  It includes assisting our clients in growing their businesses and looking out for them in a deep sense through our Hedgehog Principle.  It is being their true partner in growing their business, as opposed to just mouthing the platitude that we are “partners”.  Being honest with ourselves, this type of representation is not for everyone.  

And there are many lawyers who will not want to be part of our Firm.  We have a powerful and strong culture and values and a hedgehog principle from which we will not swerve even an iota.  These strong values and principles are not for everyone.  

We imply no disrespect to lawyers or clients who do not fit within our value system; however, there is no upside to us or them in forcing what would metaphorically be a square peg into a round hole.
