I am a business, intellectual property and technology lawyer with a concentration in evolving media and technologies, copyrghts and trademarks, privacy and data security. My commitment is to deliver cutting-edge expertise in emerging fields, but at reasonable rates and under creative and affordable billing arrangements. I am proud to have among my clients a number of innovative web and social media-focused startups and non-profit organizations in Philadelphia's vibrant creative economy. After years in big law firms and as in-house corporate counsel, I am highly sensitive to clients' concerns about the cost of legal services, particularly in these tough economic times, and believe that lawyers must understand their clients' business goals and work creatively to promote them. I founded Baer Business Law to get back to what I know and do best: providing straightforward, down-to-earth counseling and transactional assistance for clients, telling them what they need to know to achieve their goals and protect their businesses rather than wasting their precious time and money on insignificant issues.
